Is This Really South Dakota’s All-Time Favorite Sandwich?
Does this survey accurately name South Dakota's favorite sandwich? Survey says, absolutely not.
Zippia sought to find the favorite sandwich of each of the 50 states. Most of our neighboring state's top sandwiches aren't all that surprising. Minnesota went with the delicious, yet simple, Fried Egg sandwich. Iowa's top choice was the beloved Pork Tenderloin. The tried and true Ham and Cheese sandwich was North Dakota's favorite. And finally, Nebraska went with the solid choice of a PB&J.
What About The Mount Rushmore State?
South Dakota's choice? The Fluffernutter. No, that's not a typo.
According to Zippia, the Fluffernutter reigns supreme over all other contenders as the South Dakota go-to when you need a sandwich. If you don't know what a Fluffernutter is, you're not alone. In an unscientific study I did, I asked around the office and as it turns out, most people (in my office at least) didn't even know what was in a Fluffernutter.
Well, the sandwich itself is straightforward to make. It consists of two slices of bread; On one side you spread creamy or crunchy peanut butter, and on the other side goes a good helping of marshmallow spread. Then, presto! You've just made your very own Fluffernutter.
The last time I had the sandwich I was about 10 years old, and I do have to admit it was delicious. That said, give me a Pork Tenderloin Sandwich any day of the week over a Fluffernutter. Then again, I am from Iowa, so what do I know, right?
