Each state has that one important food (or drink) that has shaped the way we as Americans handle our diet (or not.) So, what is that one particular item that is crazy important to our great Bayou state??

It's the best innovation since sliced bread...well, actually Iowa can claim that. Seriously, Iowa invented and patented sliced bread! And we thought that was just a saying!

And it comes as no surprise, Kentucky's most important innovation is bourbon. That's a no-brainer. But what is Louisiana's??

Drum roll please....HOT SAUCE! Again, no surprise! Louisiana just wouldn't be Louisiana without that insanely hot mixture of Tabasco and cayenne pepper (with a little vinegar and salt thrown in there.)

So what are other states famous for? Our friends at Thrillist put together a list for you. Curious? See the complete list HERE.
