So if I were to travel to your hometown, what's the one (or two or three) products that are produced locally (within a few hundred miles) that I absolutely MUST try while I'm there.

Ale-8-One, a ginger/fruit soft drink

Grippos BBQ Chips, the best chips ever. Their other flavors are so-so.

Nice thread Jesse.

The most well known thing from where I live is Lincolnshire sausages named after the county I live in. They're an absolute must for my weekly shopping. They're sold all over the UK but you just can't beat getting them from the fresh local produce shops in Lincolnshire.

Oh and of course you can't come across here without having a proper cuppa, fish n chips and Sunday lunch :)

When in Canada try the poutine. If you're not familiar with this it is a plate of greasy french fries topped with cheese curds and then brown gravy poured over it. I've never tried it but then I'm not native here. My home is the Seattle area, the smoked salmon is fabulous :)

Thanks for the new thread Jesse.

Cheesesteaks.

What can I say? That's about all we have in Philly ;) Cheesesteaks and bad sports teams.

lol nic. I hope Kopper doesn't see you talking about his Eagles like that!

Here is Cleveland we have Stadium Mustard. A hot dog is not the same for me without it. I can remember the first time I went to a ballpark outside of Cleveland and when I order a hot dog I couldn't believe they put yellow mustard on it!
