And the grossest food Minnesotans eat is…

pickled cucumbers in a green bowl

Thrillist just named one of our most beloved foods the grossest food consumed in Minnesota: the pickle dog.

The outrage your experiencing at this moment is the appropriate reaction.

Their description:

“The state only gets approximately three weeks of decent weather after its hellish winter. So when the tundra thaws out, these people want to go apeshit. And they do it at their notorious state fair, where the most aggressively disagreeable delicacy is probably the pickle dog. This is not a hot dog with a pickle on it. This is a lone dill pickle covered in loose, messy sauerkraut, drenched in Thousand Island dressing, and wrapped in a thick-cut slice of roast beef. It’s honestly like you lost a bet and had to eat a sandwich made of the weirdest combo of food your (ex-) friend could find in your fridge. It’s not pretty. But hey, it’s summertime in Minnesota. It doesn’t last, and sometimes you need to grab life by the pickle and take some risks.”

NOT OK. We talk longingly of pickle dogs almost on the daily. Donna makes them at home and cuts them up into little appetizers, which would be perfect for such occasions as the Super Bowl.

We simply cannot accept this declaration. Click here to see the rest of the list.

What do you think should be the grossest food we eat here in Minnesota?
