Idaho’s Favorite Food Is A Utah Transplant
Look, I don't want to admit it either. Am I good with no one else moving to the Treasure Valley so we can continue to enjoy the space, land, and everything else that a non-crowded Idaho has?
Even if I'm from Texas and have only been here a few years. I totally get why people don't want to mess up a good thing and I somewhat understand why people might feel threatened by outsiders moving in. That insecurity has seemingly evolved into a feeling that everything that is coming to Idaho from outside Idaho is bad.
Does that mean Idaho is full of hypocrites?
I don't want to believe so but if those who hate California or anything "transplant" were to ban all things that "don't belong in" or "are invading" Idaho, we would be without some of the most revered dishes/snacks in all of the Gem State.
Let's look at the first thing that didn't originate in Idaho that we somehow accepted as our own.
How Are People Forgetting French Fries Don't Come From Idaho?
Now, I'm not alone when I say that you can't have or talk about French fries without... fry sauce.
It's the signature sauce of Idaho and rightfully so. Idaho is known nationwide for its potatoes and it's natural for people to associate Idaho with delicious fries and of course, fry sauce.
We already know that French fries didn't originate in Idaho and I hate to be the bearer of bad news to those who despise anything not no native to Idaho, but fry sauce isn't Idaho's either...
And How Are People Forgetting Fry Sauce Didn't Originate in Idaho?
So, if we are able to accept two "Idaho signature" FOODS despite their origins... shouldn't we be able to accept human beings from anywhere?
I would love to know your thoughts and you can do that by sending me an email here.
Now, if you're wondering where you can find the best fry sauce of all time, no worries - we got you covered.
