    The only things I've had on that list are root beer and cornbread

    Grits are fantastic if done right, as is polenta.
    Not a fan of offal, so I probably won't like scrapple.
    Loves me some good cornbread made with some rendered bacon fat.
    Fried green tomatoes are a really good time, as long as they're crispy and not soggy.

    I'm also a fan of Root Beer - it's the only soft drink I drink on the rare occasion I drink a soda.
    Let's get someone else's opinion on Root Beer:

    I had never heard of scrapple until Ronnie B brought it up a few years back. Forget the rest of the world, everything on that list, except Root Beer (maybe Cornbread), isn't popular in the US.

    Each one except for Root Beer is only popular in certain areas. None are popular all over. I would say too anywhere scrapple is sold you can buy Birch Beer.

    No.. faggot. It's pork roll. If I ask for Taylor Ham in some places, I'll get a ham sandwich.

    No clue what Taylor ham/pork roll is. Is it just lunch meat?

    Not even cornbread? I'm not from the south but that shit's delicious.


    Am I so predictable?

    You are from Pitt and don't know? I don't feel so bad now.

    Predictability is a staple of a c plusser.

    Its like salami in a way, but not as hard or spiced. Typically fried and served with american cheese and egg on a hard roll. Standard diner fare in these parts, and very contested.

    As predictable as fenrir.

    I think I could easily get on board with that but I have a hard time believing it's better than good old ham.


    I'm never gonna break through the glass ceiling with you niggas holding me back.

    corn bread is delicious. I make a great one in my skillet but I almost never see it out.

    Do you order a Caesar salad or a lettuce salad with Caesar dressing? Some things are more known for their brand name then they are for what they actually are.

    I don't know, I can imagine quite a bit.


    So BeerBelly must be very very cool at this point.

    There comes a point where it works in reverse. He found that point.

    Grits - I wouldn't seek them out , had them a few times down in Georgia as a kid
    Root Beer - Pretty good , especially Hires
    Scrapple - Never took a liking to it
    Fried green tomatoes - not interested in the least

    Not gonna get into the pork roll argument again

    Root beer is the only thing on that list that I like.

    But I do know that the proper term is pork roll.

    Love me some root bear. I haven't eaten grits since I was kid, but I do remember them being good eats. Who doesn't love cornbread?

    I'm sorry, Scrapple doesn't look very appealing.

    I have no idea what the Taylor ham and/or pork roll is.

    I'm surprised something like Lebanon Bologna isn't in this list. Seltzer's is about 15 minuets from my parents house.
