Sometimes it feels necessary to feed your sweet tooth, and your favorite dessert might vary depending on where you grew up.
Every state has a signature sweet that stands out among the rest — some even have “official” desserts. That’s why Stacker picked out the best regional desserts nationwide. The data journalism hub knows:
“Whether you’re tucking into a slice of tangy key lime pie at a beach bar in Florida, fluffy chiffon cake at a wedding in California, or an airy cream puff at the Wisconsin State Fair, there’s no denying the effect. Indulging in a location-specific sweet treat will create a special memory that stays with you, connecting you to a place forever.”
There are tons of sweet treats to try across the country. But which one do you need to try if you’re passing through the Buckeye State?
Anyone who grew up in Ohio will know to recommend the chocolate-peanut butter candy. Stacker reads:
“Named after the nut that grows on a buckeye tree and referred to as ‘everyone’s favorite Ohio treat,’ buckeyes are peanut butter fudge that’s dipped in just enough chocolate to allow an ‘eye’ of peanut butter to show through. There’s even a 31-stop Ohio Buckeye Candy Trail that marks the candy shops carrying the state favorite.”
