10 Weird Foods Every Iowan Grew Up With

Is there anything that brings us back to our childhood kitchen the way some foods do? These dishes will certainly sound familiar to people who were fortunate enough to grow up in Iowa. Some are probably more regional than others (Iowa isn’t a tiny state, after all) but it’s likely that no matter where in Iowa you are from, some of these foods will take you right back to home-sweet-home.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
