Minnesotans have a lot of delicious cuisine to brag about – jucy lucy's, tater-tot hot dish, bars, and everything on a stick at the State Fair – just to name a few.
But what about the weird and gross things that we eat?
Lutefisk is one of the first to come to mind. For some reason, Minnesotans keep eating the traditional Scandinavian dish that no one likes. (We tried some over the holidays, and it wasn't pretty).
Or for some of us, it's not unusual to eat something your relative pulled out of a lake or shot (some of which can be delicious, some not so much). Plus, Spam sushi isn't really that great.
But apparently, none of those foods are the grossest thing we eat, according to Thrillist, which compiled a list of every state's grossest food that people actually like – and Minnesota's is kind of unexpected.
Thrillist says our state's grossest food is... the pickle dog!
Excuse me, Thrillist – but we're calling bologna. Or pastrami, cause that's what this delicious snack is wrapped in at the State Fair.
If you haven't had one, it's a dill pickle spear with sauerkraut and thousand island dressing wrapped in a slice of pastrami. This glorious creation comes from the culinary minds at Pickle Dog, who also offer a "Fire Dog" with hot peppers and pickles on a stick.
And it's a tribute to Minnesota sushi, AKA pickle wraps, AKA ham rolls. Whatever you call them, they're amazing and always one of the first things to disappear at a potluck.
Sorry, Thrillist, but we (passive-aggressively) disagree.
