As Texans, we all know how important food is in daily life. It brings families together, it comforts us, it binds us, and really: it just tastes good. Texas has more official state foods than any other state, so we thought it would be appropriate to highlight those foods and shine a light on their awesomeness.

 

1. State Bread – Cornbread


2. State Dish – Chili Con Carne


3. State Fruit – Texas Red Grapefruit


4. State Nut/Pie – Pecan/Pecan Pie

Nothing like good ol southern Pecan Pie. Goode Company’s Brazo’s Bottom Pecan Pie is an award winning pie. Its been featured as Oprah’s favourite pie in O Magazine. It’s gooey delicious chock full of Texas pecans harvested from the Brazos River. Each pie is homemade with a batter that’s cooked sweet & low, using fresh farm eggs & all natural Texas pecans. Not too sugary…a perfect blend of sweet & savory! Pecans so fresh and full of flavor!! OMG this pie is a killer! I regret that I did not bring home a whole pie! ______________________________________________.#pecanpie #texaspecan #texasfoodie #houstoneats #houstonfoodie #houstonfoodporn #houstonblogger #torontoblogger #gastropost #eeeeeets #eatwell #eatfamous #ieatgood #FBCigers #foodie #foodblog #foodlove #feedfeed #lovepie #feedmytummy #igfoodpic #foodpornshare #foodporntexas #foodporno #foodiegram #cravethe6ix #foodbeast #igfoodie #igfoodpic
