Some things should be left alone, like ice cream for example. There are toppings that work and others that don’t. Grape-Nuts AKA grandpa’s favorite cereal is surely one of the toppings that should never touch ice cream.
New Englanders claim that this adds a crunchy counterpoint to the loved dessert but I argue that the concrete pebble texture and dry taste do nothing for the already-perfect-as-it-is dessert. Not sure if this was just a sneaky plan to get more fiber into the local’s diet…whatever it is. It isn’t right and it must stop.
Massachusetts -- Marshmallow Fluff
This one is just plain weird, and makes you wonder, "why"? Marshmallow Fluff is exactly what its name implies, a gooey white substance that salutes the infamous all-processed American food industry.
Whoever thought to make a shelf-stable marshmallow spread that you could ruin any dish with and put the eater at risk of getting diabetes, should definitely spend some time in jail.
Michigan -- Something Your Neighbor Killed
Eat in Michigan at your own risk. You never know what your gonna get.... on every corner of Detroit and Flint and pretty much everywhere in between, you'll probably come across some guy in a camo hat selling venison chili, whitefish dip, possum jerky, or God knows what else he hunted and gutted on the spot.
You'll be surprised that sometimes it's absolutely delicious but other times you'll end up with a chipped tooth or stomach poisoning. But hey, in life, you gotta take chances.
New Jersey -- PRE&C (Pork Roll, Egg, and Cheese)
PRE&C is a devastatingly overly-salty processed pork product that's a clear threat to the cholesterol levels of anyone who consumes it. The first time you bite into this sinful sandwich you should make an appointment with your doctor.
The taste isn't what will gross you put, but the smells that will emit from your body afterward surely will.
New Mexico -- Carne Adovada
Pork? Delicious. Red chile? Also tasty, yet when you look at a platter of Carne Adovada, it strikingly resembles a plate of wet dog food soaked in marinara sauce. But, what's surprising is that even people from outside of New Mexico seem to love this dish.
So, if you're not from the Southwest just the sight of this dish is enough to gross you out, and that's why we recommend you just close your eyes and get to chewing. Be sure to pair it with sunny-side eggs and hash browns for the ideal experience.
