Some of these, Kentucky Fried Chicken for example, are well known and have obvious ties to the Bluegrass State, while others tend to fly under the radar. One product that we all know and love and that is mostly made right here in Kentucky is the Post-It Note. With a plant in Cynthiana, America’s favorite way to write down reminders is made in Kentucky and will forever be “stuck” in our history books.
