The people of Southern USA have adopted a lot, created a lot and also have enjoyed a lot. They also have some weird taste in food that may surprise people living in other parts of the world. Even my friend who was born and raised New York tried the Southern Cusine, and was surprised by it.

Have a look at some of the weirdest Food enjoyed by People Living in the Southern USA and try one or two of those.

Alligator Sausage:

Now, what does the name suggest? Is it the meat of an Alligator? Well, it is exactly what you think. It is a large chunk of alligator meat that is barbecued. In Alabama, a lot of folks eat this with a glass of beer. If you are going to try it, I suggest you do some research on Alligator meat. You might be surprised. 😉


Salads may not sound that weird, but people from the south have a different way to eat them. They are loaded with spices and sauce, and almost every single one of them has potato.

Southern Salad

I have eaten salad in many parts of the world, but Tennesse easily has the most colorful salads on the planet. In the pic above you can see a Texas style salad with bread.

Loco Moco:

A hamburger with eggs, rice and gravy? Oh yes, it is a complete meal that you can have in a single dish! Originated from Hawaii, this dish is also enjoyed by a lot of people living in the Southern USA! Not that weird but scores high on the taste front.

Rocky Mountain Oysters:

Now this is something fascinating. You will pop one in the mouth, and you will probably ask for one more. But when you find out what they are, you might be a little surprised. Well, they are oyster testicles. This may sound weird AF, but there is no denying that the taste is something you will remember for a long time.

Kentucky Hot Browns

If you are fond of sandwich and turkey, then this is the best things that you can enjoy. With the Kentucky Hot Browns in your mouth, you can always enjoy the Mornay sauce and along with the bacon. It may sound little too weird but is appreciated by a lot of people in the South, give it a try my friend.

Chicken and Waffles:

Now this combination is very famous in the whole country and not only in the southern states. It is served on a plate with chicken fries, waffles, butter, and honey! People enjoy the cracking sound of the waffles and along with the smoky taste of the chicken.

My girlfriend loves to have this, and we are making waffles at least twice a week. I use the highly versatile kitchenaid professional 600 for this, but you can read stand mixer reviews, to choose one for your needs.


Koolickles are also famous in many parts of Southern USA. These Koolickles are jelly like pickles which are consumed after the meal. They are available in different flavors and are great in taste.

So this sums up my list for the weirdest food you can eat in Souther USA. If you have a personal favorite, tell me more about it in the comments below.…
