7 Delicious Desserts from Around the United States

Sure, it's fun to try all the salty, savory, and spicy regional treats, but what about the sweet? These desserts are just a handful of the sugary goodness that our nation has to offer. Find all types of great state foods in "Great American Eating Experiences": http://smarturl.it/GAEX101416

  1. 1

    Whoopie Pies (Maine)

    It’s nearly impossible to resist Maine’s official treat: two large and fluffy cookies sandwiched around a thick layer of vanilla frosting.

  2. 2

    Saltwater Taffy (New Jersey)

    Sticky, chewy, gooey, colorful bits of delight: no food symbolizes the Jersey Shore’s carnival atmosphere more than saltwater taffy, a boardwalk staple for more than 100 years.

  3. 3

    Key Lime Pie (Florida)

    Florida’s official state pie is made with key limes, a tart fruit that’s roughly the size of a golf ball, has a yellow rind when ripe, and is very sparsely grown in the United States today.

  4. 4

    Beignets (Louisiana)

    Served hot and typically in orders of three, beignets are to be savored in a café, not devoured as a quick snack.

  5. 5

    Buckeye Candy (Ohio)

    These bonbons consist of a ball of sweet peanut butter dough that’s partially dipped in melted chocolate.

  6. 6

    Bread Pudding (Utah)

    Frontier-era cooks made their bread pudding by blending stale bread with milk, eggs, sugar, and lard into a simple yet tasty after-dinner treat.

  7. 7

    Shaved Ice (Hawaii)

    Whether you opt for lilikoi (passion fruit) or tamarind (a strong spice), matcha green tea or Thai iced tea, don’t leave the islands without sinking your tastebuds into these frosty piles of delicious slush!
