Living in Pennsylvania means we eat pretty well. We can all probably agree with that sentiment, right? After all, Pennsylvania’s the birthplace of some of the world’s greatest foods – Philadelphia cheesesteaks, stromboli, Hershey’s chocolate, Lebanon bologna, and even the Big Mac. Love it or hate it, we should give a tip of the hat to scrapple, too. Since we eat so well, it might come as little surprise that Pennsylvanians eat dinner earlier than residents of any other state, according to a recent study.
What do you think about the results of this study that found Pennsylvanians eat dinner earlier than any other state? Why do you think we eat dinner so early? What time do you eat dinner? Let us know in the comments! Then take a look at these quirky facts about Pennsylvania; they sound made up, but they’re true.
