Eatocracy zOMGBFF and former colleague Kristyn Pomranz unleashes her mad genius upon the world with this map of regional food favorites, divvied up by state.

Head on over to My Food Looks Funny for the full map, but know this about Ms Pomranz - she's co-written two (2) musical plays, I Can Has Cheezburger: The MusicLOL! and Hot Dogs: The Competitive Eating Musical and should be approached with extreme caution. And possibly snacks.

And if you're a resident South Dakota, you probably have your own chislic recipe (it's cubed meat, by the way and it's usually fried), but if you aren't and you don't and you're jealous, our pal Beannie's family cookbook does. You're welcome.

    Can we change Colorado's to BEER? It's not a "food" per se, but it's something we do VERY well here. :-)

    And I'll disagree with PA's, too... at least add a Primanti Bros sandwich to the western half of the state, if it must be a sandwich at all.

    Salmon (or any other fish in abundance) is also very popular in Washington state.

    Of course, Maryland is properly labeled with Callinectes sapidus or "Beautiful swimmer," better known as the Blue Crab (for the line of blue along the bottom of its claws). What else would you expect from a state where a popular holiday song is, "Crabs for Christmas"? Maryland's restaurants' reputations are made or broken on the quality of it's Crab Imperial and Crab Cakes. And note that just recently got a 32 quart aluminum steamer pot for $29.99 (free shipping) that's just perfect for steaming a few dozen [or, I'm told, brewing homemade beer]. When the roadside vendors around Baltimore are selling 3 dozen live crabs for $25 bucks next year, I'm now prepared!

    This map is pretty poorly thought out and is mainly stereotypes. I'd say Beer, Brats or even Cheese Curds are more accurate for Wisconsin. You don't see people walking around there eating a wedge of cheese. And for Minnesota, the fried food on a stick is only at the state fair. You ask most people at it would a Hot Dish, aka Casserole to the rest of us. Finally, Deep Dish Pizza, isn't that big of a deal outside the Chicagoland area...

    Californians are not particularly crazy about grapes, I think she means wine. We do love our wine and so do lots of tourists!!!
