There are a lot of foods out there that may taste great and may actually be popular but are still pretty darn disgusting when looked at from an outsider's perspective. Foods like SPAM musubi, ambrosia salad and hot beef sundaes seem totally normal to those who love them, but to those from other regions, they may seem a bit gross -even if it's that kind of "eww that's terrible for you but I still want to try it" gross. Thrillist has compiled the grossest dish from each state and the results are fascinating.
While some things like carne adovada will seem at least worthy of a try to most readers, some of the items are hotly contested, like Cincinatti chili -which features either chocolate or cinnamon inside a thin chili and served on spaghetti. Of course, many readers disagreed with the choices, which only makes these kind of lists more fun. I, for one, have never even heard of "goop" and I've lived in California my whole life.
So feel free to discuss your state's grossest food in the comments after you check out the whole list here.
