From the garish (Utah’s “Funeral potatoes”), to the self-evident choice of buffalo wings in New York, the results of the poll are sure to keep food partisans engaged in the process for weeks and months to come.

The conversation surrounding the narrative regarding best foods in America has been a fever-pitch level for years now, and this recent referendum only serves to take the debate to another level.
