10 Undeniable Things You’ll Find In Every Missouri Home
Missourians are a truly one of a kind. Although we may all live in the same state, it can sometimes be hard to find similarities with those who live on the other side of Missouri. However, there are some things that are just universally acceptable across the state that you will likely find in every Missourian’s home. These are the 10 undeniable things you’ll find in every Missouri home:
1. A baseball glove
Missouri is a baseball state. Whether you like the St. Louis Cardinals or the Kansas City Royals, you're a die hard fan. We have two championship teams in one state and everyone is baseball crazy. So even if you only wear your glove when you go to watch your favorite team, everyone in Missouri has owned a baseball glove.
2. Something bought from the Bass Pro Shop
The Bass Pro Shop is an iconic Missouri outdoors retailer. You have likely visited the massive Outdoor World Bass Pro Shop in Springfield. Most of the time you left with a t-shirt but you at least had a Bass Pro magnet at your house.
3. A weather radio for those unpredictable storms
Missouri weather can always be unpredictable. In the spring the threat of a tornado is always real. Many Missourian's have weather radios for emergency alerts, however most of us like to sit on the porch to watch a heavy storm!
4. Toasted raviolis in the freezer
Every true Missourian knows that toasted raviolis are the ultimate after school snack. You always have a box of toasted ravs in the freezer!
5. A sled for showy days
The Missouri terrain is perfect for sledding in the winter. Regardless of where you live in the state, when the snow finally falls you bust out your sled for a ride down the hill.
6. A picture of you and your friends at the lake
It doesn't matter which "lake" you and your family hit each summer, you have a photo like this. Missourian's love a lake weekend and we have a lot of great man made lakes to choose from.
7. A big bottle of barbecue sauce
Missouri barbecue is some of the best in the nation. We love barbecuse so much that you will almost always find a big bottle of barbecue sauce in our fridges at home.
8. Budweiser products, at least for your next party
Even if Budweiser isn't your drink of choice, you likely have at least a few of these in your fridge from your last party. You won't find a house party in Missouri devoid of some bud light.
9. Water shoes for your annual float trip
While you may only wear these once a year, every Missourian keeps a pair of water shoes around for float trips. There is nothing worse than trying to walk across a rocky riverbed.
10. Pressed pennies from one of the many underground attractions
Pressed pennies were the perfect souvenir when you were a kid and your parents didn't give you money for the cave gift shop. From Meramec Cavers to Fantstic Caverns, these penny machines were everywhere at these underground attractions. You probably still have your's in a junk drawer somewhere.
