10 Foods Every Tennessean Craves When They Leave Tennessee
Tennesseans have a lot of love for their homeland, and when they leave the state they always keep a part of their heart back home in the Volunteer State. That being said: one of the strongest forms of memory is hidden in our culinary history because you know what they say: taste buds never forgets. Well, no one actually says that… but these eleven foods really made Tennesseans miss their sweet home. Do any of them make you salivate with the memory?
10. Can we say our pie?
The Loving Pie Company holds the fort down in Nashville as the best place to hit up if you're looking for a flaky, delectable piece of pie.
9. The tangy bite of a koolickle..
It's a west Tennessee tradition, and the mix of tangy and sour just drives the beauty of this strange little treat home.
8. Or the sultry taste of whiskey.
It's a Tennessee classic, and it's just different when you head over the state line.
7. And Nashville's newly-honed coffee culture.
This may be attributed mainly to millennials, but Tennessee has truly taken a step beyond Starbucks into the 3rd wave coffee movement.
6. A Five Daughters donut. Always.
We can't get enough of everything Five Daughters Bakery comes up with! This Tennessee-based eatery can't be had anywhere else, and it's well worth a nostalgic sigh once you leave.
5. Memphis bbq. It's a classic.
And you simply can't experience it the same way once you've left the Volunteer State.
4. Man, you can't beat our hot chicken — during the cooler months, of course.
Nope. Can't beat it. Classic.
3. Or even a Moto biscuit from Barista Parlor.
The perfectly crumbly breakfast sandwich is a great mix of Tennessee's millennial culture and old-school Tennessee culinary tradition.
2. We will always miss REAL GOOD biscuits.
The Loveless Cafe gave us a solid foundation, but true Tennesseans have a lovely family member that can make 'em real good.
1. Can you really get a good GooGoo Cluster anywhere else...?
The first combination candy bar in the world came from Tennessee, and we're pretty dang proud of it.
Do you agree? Also… have you heard of this
beautiful Tennessee park?
