Southern Wife Tries & Ranks Michigan Foods For The First Time
Where you are born and where your family lives as you grow up can determine a lot of the experiences, cuisine, and hobbies you have done or enjoy. For example, the way that someone from Michigan lives, cooks food, or enjoys their free time is most likely different than those who live in California.
Now, The Southern part of the United States is where some of the best food (yes, this is my personal opinion) is made. I'm talking soul food but also a lot of the meals we enjoy in other regions are prepared a little differently down south. One South Carolina woman, whose husband is from Michigan has been trying the Mitten State's favorite creations and ranking them.
Some of you may remember this TikTok user (lorynpowell) from the first time she tried some of the hand-shaped state's delicate and delicious food inventions. She gave those foods solid scores for the most part but wasn't completely sold on everything she ate. Well, she enjoyed the food enough to give some of our other beloved treats a try as well.

Above, you could see her give the Coney Dog, Better Made plain potato chips, A Rock & Rye Faygo, and then they finished with an adult-only special in a Faygo bomb which was originated at the Tin Can, A Michigan-only bar franchise. This lineup is stellar, one that I would encourage all to try, and it seems to have fared better than the starting lineup.
She gave the Coney Dog an 8/10, noting that the hot dog and chili taste delicious and great respectively while admitting that she doesn't really enjoy onions, but they were being masked by other tastes.
Next up, she absolutely LOVED the Better Made chips, keeping that section sweet and simple by giving them a 10/10. Lastly, the Faygo, which she calls soda instead of pop (another conversation for another time) and the Faygo Bomb. She says the Rock & Rye has an interesting flavor and gives it a 7, while the Faygo Bomb (flavored vodka shot dropped into a glass of Faygo) says it's good and gives it an 8/10.
They end the video by giving each other a "Michigan High Five", which I've never heard of but makes a lot of sense and is kind of clever. You use both hands to create the entire state of Michigan, one hand serves as the lower peninsula while the other is the upper peninsula, then complete a normal high five.
Do you agree with her rankings? Do you think they are a tad too high? Maybe they're a little too low? Would you invite her back to Michigan to hang out with the rest of your family and friends? Or would she run the risk of offending a Michigander or Two?
