America's Top 8 Favorite Desserts

Louisiana—Bananas Foster

It was developed in 1951 at Brennan's Restaurant in New Orleans to commemorate the New Orleans Crime Commission's chairman, Richard Foster, and is still flambeed and served with vanilla ice cream.

Ohio – Buckeyes

The Buckeye State's most renowned dessert is appropriately named. This dish tastes better than the "buckeye" tree, which has nuts that appear like deer eyes.

Hawaii – Shave Ice

Summer shave ice businesses draw youngsters and adults in several areas. Hawaii does it best with ice flakes soaked in tastes like pickled mango, passion fruit, raspberry, and bubblegum, which may be topped with vanilla ice cream, condensed milk, or azuki beans


New England – Whoopie Pie

Maine and Pennsylvania have argued for years about who invented this cream-filled cookie sandwich. You'll want seconds after tasting its cakey, chocolate cookie crust and sweet cream within.

Florida—Key Lime Pie

A proper key lime pie is yellow, with a graham cracker crust and a tangy custard prepared with tart key limes and sweetened condensed milk. Beware of fakers that add green food coloring because they envy the real key lime's followers!

Massachusetts—Boston Cream Pie

The Kentucky Derby and derby pie come last. This chocolate-walnut dessert features a crunchy, buttery exterior and a mushy, cake-like inside. Best of all, you don't have to wait till the first Saturday in May to consume it!
