50 Foods that CNN Thinks Are More American than Chicken Riggies and Half Moons
If there’s one thing Central New Yorkers are proud of, it’s our food. Chicken Riggies, Utica Greens and Half Moons are regional fare that we boast about to anyone who will listen. So imagine my surprise when CNN’s list of 50 Great American Foods neglects to list any of them!
The list CNNGo prepared was published duringUSA Travel week and includes several great regional foods I won’t quibble with: Key Lime pie, Buffalo wings and Maryland crab cakes.
However the list also includes questionable entries like tater tots, PBJ sandwiches and cobbler. All great staple foods, but don’t showcase regional specialties like we’ve got here in Central New York.
Read the full CNNGo list for yourself and see if you agree with their choices.
