What Is New York’s Most Important Food Innovation?
Thrillist recently compiled a list of the most important food innovation from each state. What is New York's?
Buffalo wings! Here is what Thrillist had to say on their website:
New York might seem like a hard pick, what with all the foods you associate with NYC. But really, has there ever been a more American, ubiquitous food innovation than Teressa Bellissimo’s idea to put Frank’s RedHot and butter on some deep-fried chicken wings they were going to throw away? Does America not go through millions of pounds of wings on a single Super Bowl day? Are they not the anchor item on any sports bar menu worth its weight in blue cheese and/or ranch, depending on where in the country you live?
It's tough to argue with this one. Buffalo Wings are a legendary staple on any many and at any football viewing party. It is tough to imagine life without them!
So what are the top contributions from our neighbors?
- New Jersey: M & M's
- Massachusetts: Dunkin' Donuts
