Here Are The 11 Dishes You Have To Eat In Wisconsin Before You Die
You’ve still got plenty of wonderful years ahead of you. But before you kick the bucket, you need to consume these Wisconsin dishes. And if you want a lot of wonderful years ahead of you, you might want to do it in moderation.
1. Cream puff
It's hard to believe that these things have only been around since 1924. But they've been a favorite ever since, and are wildly popular at the Wisconsin state fair.
Ballparks, home grills, in front of grocery stores--once the weather starts to turn warm, brats are everywhere. Beer brats add that extra Wisconsin touch.
Originally developed in Racine, the Kringle has become the Wisconsin state pastry. It is a ring of pastry topped with icing or preserves.
4. Brandy Old Fashioned
Whether you're drinking a true old fashioned or an old fashioned cocktail, as long as you're drinking it at a wonderful supper club, you'll be just fine.
5. Blue Moon Ice Cream
What flavor is blue moon? Is it almond? Fruity? Each ice cream parlor has its own way of doing it. Try them all!
6. Butter Burger
The key to a great butter burger is no secret: butter. You definitely look for a crispy, toasted bun and wonderfully tender meat.
7. Fried Cheese Curds
The best way to eat these is mixed. A delicate breading is definitely preferred.
8. Frozen Custard
The eggs in this concoction make it so rich and contribute to the super velvety texture.
A food with Polish origin that is most famous on Fat Tuesday, Wisconsinites go crazy for these sweet treats.
These dough pockets are filled with meats and veggies and are kinda like a pot pie married a calzone.
11. Beer Cheese Soup
High quality beer can truly elevate this dish. Fun fact: this soup was actually served for breakfast in medieval Europe.
I definitely would not recommend trying to eat these all in one sitting.
