These 12 Iconic Foods In Montana Will Have Your Mouth Watering
Home is where the heart is, and nothing pulls at the heartstrings more than a tasty meal in your home state that you grew up eating. Montana can certainly hold its own when it comes to mouthwatering food. These local delicacies are just a few of the things that most Montanans enjoy.
1. Wheat Montana Cinnamon Rolls
Wheat Montana got its start in Three Forks, but you can now find delis and bakeries all over the state and get breads and mixes at Albertson’s or Safeway.
2. Pickle Barrel Sandwiches
The only thing better than a 12 inch sub is a 17.5 inch sub.
3. Huckleberries in All Forms
Huckleberry jam, huckleberry pie, huckleberry ice cream...
4. Flathead Cherries
There’s nothing quite like them.
5. Burgers from The Burger Dive
If you live in Billings or you visit for any reason, you know that the Burger Dive is a necessary stop.
6. Mackenzie River Pizza
The Montana-born chain is famous for a reason… it’s addictive!
7. Ice Cream From Arrowleaf
For the last 28 years, visitors on their way to and from Yellowstone have enjoyed the delicious ice cream cones and sundae concoctions at Arrowleaf Ice Cream & Grill. The business has changed owners a few times, but the amazing variety of flavor combinations remain the same.
No, Montanans didn’t invent steak. But they know how to grill one to perfection and they love to order it when they go out.
9. Huckleberry Bear Claws and Other Treats From the Polebridge Mercantile
Everyone knows a trip to Glacier is even sweeter after a trip to the Polebridge Mercantile for a pastry or cookie.
10. Elk Burgers and Bison Burgers
Wild game… well, runs wild in Montana. And it’s delicious.
The pasty pictured above is from Joe’s Pasty Shop in Butte, which clearly subscribes to the theory that the only way to make a meat pie better is to cover it with gravy.
12. Cream of the West
This is the stuff that ruined you for all other cereal, not to mention the Flapjack Mix that makes the best pancakes ever.
How many of these Montana delicacies have you had?
