Lately I have been seeing a lot of posts saying "You aren't really _____ if you haven't had _____". So I decided to make my own! Keep tally of how many Minnesota staple foods you have had!


  • Tater Tot Hotdish
  • "Salad" made from Jell-O and Cool Whip
  • Lutefisk
  • Dessert bars (The best are made by retired ladies at church)
  • Something deep-fried and on a stick that should not have been deep fried nor served stick style
  • Fried fish that you caught yourself from the lake that morning
  • Day old, left over Sweet Martha's Cookies
  • Michelob Golden Draft Light Beer
  • a Juicy Lucy
  • Lefse
  • Fries from Val's
  • Pickled Herring, or any other fish. Bonus points if you make it yourself!
  • Venison Jerky
  • Wild Rice soup or hotdish
