This is quite the interesting list we have here. Funny thing is, Evansville gets a shout out! just put together a list of the GROSSEST FOOD that people love in every state. Some of the highlights include:

  •  Akutaq in Alaska.  That's "Eskimo Ice Cream" . . . but not delicious Eskimo Pies.  It's a mix of seal and other animal fats, with berries, and sometimes sugar and milk.
  • New Haven Clam Pie in Connecticut.  That's pizza with clams and white sauce.
  • Koolickle in Mississippi.  That's a pickle soaked in Kool-Aid.
  • Nutria in Louisiana....which is best described as a "large, semi-aquatic river rat" boiled in a Crock-Pot for four hours.

Those are just a few foods that you will find on this list, but what about the Tri-State? How did we fare? Well let's just say that Evansville gets some recognition, Illinois is pretty normal, and Kentucky...well...ya'll got some issues!

Check out what gross food was chosen for the Tri-State:

Indiana: Brain sandwich

While hardly ubiquitous in the Hoosier State, brain sandwiches (not a euphemism) still have their strongholds, particularly down around the southern tip in and around Evansville, with the Hilltop Inn being the most celebrated purveyor of the delicacy.

Illinois: Gravy bread

If you're at all familiar with the Chicagoland delicacy that is Italian beef, you know that some indulgence-minded locals (which is many of them) like to order their sandwich dipped in the warm vat of beef juice for extra flavor/sloppiness. Well, gravy bread is kinda like that, except there's no sandwich. It's just a wet, soggy roll saturated in spiced beef juice.


Kentucky: Lamb fries

Look, you're actually down here. If you're gonna chomp on some deep-fried testicles -- yep, "fries" are a euphemism for gonads -- you might as well go with lamb rather than some promiscuous sheep. You might not want to think about how they're made: parboiled, sliced in half, and then submerged in boiling hot oil. Brutal. They kind of taste like clam strips.


And there you have it folks...the grossest food that the Tri-State indulges in. If you want to see the full list and be even more grossed out, check out Thrilllist's article here.
