Over at my second home, Serious Eats, a fellow foodie posed the question: what ice cream would best represent your home state?
There were 54 answers the last time I checked — at least one for each state — but only one person had represented Texas, and…it wasn’t what I was hoping for:
Blue Bell Ice Cream is #1 brand in Texas. There are four food groups in Texas: barbecue, tex-mex, chicken fried steak and Blue Bell. Their best seller is Homemade Vanilla.
While I can’t argue with the food groups — they’re pretty much spot on — I’ve got to believe that we can come up with a more creative flavor than boring old vanilla to represent the Lone Star State.
So, fellow Texans, what ice cream flavor do you think would best represent our fair state? It doesn’t have to be an ice cream flavor that anyone — even Blue Bell — currently makes. Be adventurous!
