Top 5 Michigan Foods

#5: Vlasic Pickles

That's right. Your favorite pickle got its start right here in the state of Michigan. And closer than you may think, especially for our Romeo readers. Vlasic Pickles, America's #1 Pickle, opened its first plant in 1937 in Imlay City.

Vlasic bottles more than 150 million pickle products annually and their products can easily be identified by the label with the Vlasic Stork.

Whether you like pickle chips for your burgers, stackers for your sandwiches, or a spear to munch on as a snack we can almost guarantee your fridge has seen a jar or two of this Michigan favorite.

#4: Better Made Chips

If you find yourself in a Michigan Party Store, you can bet you will find a wall of Detroit's favorite potato chip.

Even though they are the best known chip in town, that wasn't the case when Cross Moceri and Peter Cipriano purchase their factory in 1930. At the time, there were 30 other competing chip companies in the City of Detroit. But Better Made came out on top.

With flavors like Barbeque, Salt & Vinegar, Red Hot, and Sour Cream & Onion, there is something for everyone. And they go great with #1 on our list, so keep scrolling...

#3: Superman Ice Cream

If this doesn't bring back memories of walking into your favorite ice cream shop as a kid, I don't know what will! This unique flavor of ice cream is said to have been created right here in Michigan by the company Stroh's.

Featuring the bright colors that resemble the costume of Superman, this ice cream flavor featuring Blue Moon, Cherry, and Lemon is a childhood favorite of many Midwesterners.

#2: Detroit Style Pizza

One might say that Little Caesars is the new Detroit Pizza staple, but if you're talking Detroit Style Pizza, you have to give credit where credit is due. Buddy's Pizza, founded in 1946, is credited with originating what we know to be Detroit Style Pizza.

Detroit-style pizza is a rectangular pizza with a thick crust that is crispy and chewy. It is traditionally topped with tomato sauce and Wisconsin Brick Cheese that goes all the way to the edges. This style of pizza is often baked in rectangular steel trays designed for use as automotive drip pans or to hold small industrial parts in factories.

#1: The Detroit Style Coney

Is there anything better than a Detroit Style Coney Dog? The answer is no...

We're not here to make a decision on the epic American vs. Lafayette debate, but we will say, no matter where your favorite Coney stop is in Michigan, you're in for a treat.

The Detroit Style Coney features a hot dog smothered in coney sauce and topped with chopped onions and mustard. The messier the better. And if you use Michigan's own Koegels Hot Dogs you know you're going to get that "snap" that lets you know you got yourself a real coney dog.
