These 8 Iconic Foods In West Virginia Will Have Your Mouth Watering
Part of West Virginia’s unique culture includes its unique choices of favorite foods. From ramps to apple butter, these are some of the iconic food items that we have come to love in the Mountain State.
We love our biscuits here, and for good reason.
2. Apple butter
Apple butter is a fall-time tradition that I always look forward to in West Virginia.
Ramps, shown here on a delicious looking pizza, are a favorite in West Virginia. During the spring there are a ton of ramp dinners in the state.
4. Italian food
It may be odd to call another country's food an icon for a state, but we have a lot of great Italian food options here. That stems from have a lot of Italian immigrants during the 20th century.
5. Beans and cornbread
This is a classic food combination in West Virginia and it's so good.
6. Pepperoni rolls
These are a West Virginia tradition that started in the coal mines. Miners needed something to carry to eat with them in the mines. These pepperoni rolls did quite nicely.
What else would a state with a lot of deer hunters like besides venison? It's delicious.
8. Hot dogs
We love our hot dogs here.
