Everyone In Tennessee Absolutely Loves These 12 Foods
Why do Tennesseans love these foods, you may ask? Because here in Tennessee they’re made RIGHT. Some even owe their origins to the Volunteer state. Only the latest and greatest comes from this place of places, and the south has never quite been the same. Take a look at some homegrown foods from right here on ol ‘ Rocky Top.
12) Flaky Biscuits
Loveless Cafe is RENOWNED for their secret recipe, and these look decadent.
11) GREAT Barbeque
Memphis owns it when it comes to the best bbq (Rendezvous, anyone?), but the entire state rocks - hands down.
10) Brach's Candy
Brach's may not be FROM Tennessee, but you're sure to find a lot of wrappers - the south loves 'em!
9) Mayfield Ice Cream
Another Tennessee original! Head over to Athens if you're looking for a tour of the dairy.
8) Crumbly Cornbread
Cornbread and butter. Does life get any better than this?!?! Tennesseans don't need much more.
7) Catfish - In any way, shape or form
We catch it and fry it and promise it will be the best thing you've had ALL day.
6) Country Ham
The reason we love it is in the name. Country ham? Winning!
5) Goo Goo Clusters
Tennessee bore the nation it's first combination candy. You HAVE to try one if you make it to Nashville.
4) Hot Chicken
Speaking of Nashville - Music City's hot chicken is a force to be reckoned with. Bring some water!
3) Little Debbie's Snack Cakes
Did you know your favorite snack cakes originated in the Chattanooga area? Little Debbie was a tiny Tennessee granddaughter to the founder, OD McKee.
2) Bush's Baked Beans
You can thank the best state in the south for your baked beans the next time you're grilling out with friends. Born in Tennessee, folks.
1) Moon Pie
Chattanooga is the birthplace of the moon pie, and these state natives love it so much they throw festivals for it. Well deserved festivals, if we do say so ourselves.
You know the real way to know what Tennesseans like? To ask them. So sound off, natives! What do you love on YOUR supper tables?
