Our Upstate region has given birth to so many wonderful food memories.  From main meals, to cookies, to salad dressings, to appetizers, to snacks and so much more, the food history of Upstate is rich, amazing and oh so delicious!  As a travel writer I have been to each of the "birthplaces" mentioned in this post.  The stories are incredible.  Have you tried them all?  All 21?  Really?  Sponge Candy?  Michigan Hot Dogs?  Cold Cheese Pizza?  Turkey Joints?  Grape Pie?  Well, if not, let the food journey begin for you!
