+briansnat Posted May 1, 2003 Share Posted May 1, 2003 My brother just came back from NC with several cans of boiled peanuts. He said they were popular southern snack. I tried them and thought they were deilcious. So it got me to wondering about the other kinds of great regional foods out there. In NJ we have Taylor Ham, Texas weiners (how'd they get that name?) and Italian hot dogs. In New England, there are lobster rolls and in northern Maine there is a concoction called poutine. In parts of the south, I remember eating biscuts with red-eye gravy.  And how could I forget Speedies? The dish invented and pretty much limited to Binghampton NY and the surrounding area. So what is your favorite regional food and by that I mean something you grew up with; can't do without and can't find outside your home state or region...
