Iowa isn’t necessarily known for any signature food. A sophomore at Iowa State University named Chris Jorgensen just tried to change that.
He made himself a grilled cheese sandwich last week, but instead of bread, he put the slice of American cheese between two POP-TARTS. And he tweeted, quote, “You ain’t from Iowa if you never had one of these.”
Now . . . lots of other people from Iowa have chimed in and said they’ve never heard of this sandwich before. But Chris’s tweet is going viral . . . so maybe one day, we’ll look back at this moment as when Iowa’s signature dish was created.
