When you set out to define each state’s food so precisely, there are bound to be problems. For instance, while lime Jell-O is Utah’s “official” regional food in print, not many people there eat it and a lot of the locals will tell you Utah’s true claim to culinary fame is fry sauce. This week’s poll asks: do you agree with your state’s regional food? Yes or no? Do you even recognize it? If not, what do you consider to be your state’s regional food?
