These West Coasters Tried Traditional Michigan Food… And Their Reactions Are Hilarious

Us Michiganders have to admit, some of our favorite regional dishes are… well, unhealthy. In many respects that could speak to our blue collar roots, or our need for an abundance of comfort food thanks to the long months we spend in the cold. Try explaining our eating habits to outsiders – the coneys, pasties and pierogi – and we’ve surely encountered blank stares. Watch the hilarity of some such reactions in this video as bunch of Californians try make sense of some of our favorites.

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:

We’re sure you’ve come across these reactions at least once during your travels. Tell us, what’s your favorite (or worst!) responses you’ve come across when talking food in the Mitten State!
