21 Foods New England does better.

1. Fluffernutters

 

Fluffernutters

Move over, jelly. Marshmallow Fluff was invented in Massachusetts and is still the favorite choice amongst New Englanders when deciding what to put on their peanut butter sandwich.

2. Clam Chowder

 

None of that weird tomato-y stuff. Just classic New England chowda.

3. Lobster Rolls

 

Preferably eaten at a wooden picnic table overlooking the water.

4. Clam Bakes

 

Clam Bakes

New England shellfish > everywhere else’s shellfish.

5. Ice Cream

 

Ice Cream

Because Ben & Jerry’s.

6. Anything with Cranberries

 

Cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving? Yeah, New England does it best. Cranberries are even the official state fruit of Massachusetts.

7. Also, Blueberries

 

Maine has designated the blueberry its official state berry, with over 60,000 acres of land dedicated to growing them.

8. Whoopie Pie

 

Whoopie Pie

They’re the official state treat of Maine.

9. Maple Syrup

 

Don’t even try to pretend that there’s anything better than Vermont maple syrup. Just don’t.

10. Bread Rolls

 

Bread Rolls

The art of the pre-dinner roll when you’re out to eat has been perfected by Bertucci’s. They are just. so. amazing.

11. Fried Clams

 

Fried Clams

The Clam Box in Ipswich, Mass., is a national treasure.

12. Johnnycakes

 

Johnnycakes

Regular pancakes are fine, but johnnycakes are divine. These cornmeal-based wonders date back to the early years of the Pilgrims in America.

13. Frozen Lemonade

 

Frozen Lemonade

If you’ve never had a Del’s in the summer, I am so, so sorry.

14. Apple Cider

 

Apple orchards and New England go hand in hand. Case in point: the apple orchard in The Cider House Rules was located in Maine.

15. Frappes

 

Frappes

Or, if you’re at Friendly’s (founded in New England!), Fribbles. But NEVER call them milkshakes.

16. Hot Dogs

 

Hot Dogs

Rhode Island makes hot wieners, aka hot dogs taken to the extreme with meat sauce, chopped onions, spices, and more.

17. Boston Cream Pie

 

So creamy and custardy and spongy and perfect.

18. Cheese

 

Whatever, Wisconsin. Do you guys have Cabot Creamery? That’s what I thought.

19. Baked Beans

 

Nobody really calls Boston “Beantown,” but the baked beans are actually really great with all that sweet molasses goodness.

20. Potato Chips

 

If they’re not kettle cooked, they’re just not as good.

21. And Doughnuts

 

And Doughnuts

Because Dunkin’.
