The United States is filled with food, and no matter which state you live in, there's something that can be said about food that's unique to that state. We're not just talking about saying Georgia has a lot of peaches or that Boston is known for their cream pies. No, we're talking about the state where it's illegal to fall asleep in a cheese factory or where taking roadkill home for dinner is considered a crime (but honestly, I say let natural selection take over with that one). So without further ado, here are the United States of Weird or Intriguing Food Facts.

You probably thought I was going to bring up the lemons thing again, didn’t you?
Nope, we’re talking about how Castroville is the Artichoke Capital of the World and that in 1947, Norma Jean was crowned Castroville’s first Artichoke Queen.
And if you will remember, Norma Jean went on to become Marilyn Monroe.
