The United States of America has 50 states in its mainland. The geography of each state are so big that there are some towns you haven’t even heard existed until now. Foodies who love to travel to the USA will go crazy knowing that each town gets its namesake from the dish it’s known for. The following seven towns, picked specially by our team at Fayyaz Travels for their uniqueness are named after its staple food or ingredient. Let’s take a look!

1. Walnut Creek, California

Rancho Arroyo de Las Nueces y Bolbones was a Mexican land grant given to the state of California in 1834. The land on the western slope of Mount Diablo- the small, affluent city of Walnut Creek, California was named such because native species of walnut trees can be found there, which is the California walnut. More than 99% of the walnuts in the country come from this part of California. These valleys supply two-thirds of the world’s walnut trade. Craving for some walnut cake or snacks after reading this? Don’t worry; we are too.

2. Bean Station, Tennessee

The state of Tennessee has Nashville for music, and Memphis for basketball. Little do they know that on the intersection of the Old Stage Road and the Great Wilderness Road lies a small city known for good bean-filled dishes. But it wasn’t the dish that technically gave Bean Station its name. The city was originally named after William Bean, a pioneer and associate of early American frontiersman and folk hero Daniel Boone. It used to be a frontier outpost established in 1780. It became an important stopover for longhunters and travelers back then.

3. Hot Coffee, Mississippi

Caffeine addicts, ahoy! There really is wonder hiding in small places, just like this town that emerged on the road from Natchez, Mississippi, to Mobile, Alabama. Hot Coffee in Mississippi was a well-traveled route in the 1800s. Its name’s history traces back to 1870, when inn and store owner L.J. Davis hung a coffee pot over his door advertising “the best hot coffee around.” This famous coffee helped steel travelers unwind and regenerate their strength after being on the road for days. This eventually led to the community adopting its name today.

4. Bacon, Texas

The State of Texas, US might be the king of food-named cities in America with: Noodle, Ding Dong, Oatmeal, Salty, Sugar Land, and probably many more. However, Bacon, named after America’s most popular greasy food, takes the gold. Bacon is located in Wichita Falls. It is close to the Texas-Oklahoma border. But let your arteries be assured that bacon isn’t the only greasy delight the town has. If you ever find yourself in this charming town in September, look forward to the annual Texas Oklahoma Fair. It is the very time and place where locals gather together to feast on the town’s signature Polish sausage sandwiches. Corn dogs served here are also a foot long. There are too many sinful indulgences that we can’t even think of right now, so don’t say we didn’t warn you!

5. Pie Town, New Mexico

Pie Town, a simple town in New Mexico, serves the best apple pies in town. No wonder its name is as such! Pie Town sits astride the Continental Divide in the remote west-central area of the state. It resembles a ghost town on the outside, but it safeguards a hidden sweet treasure on the inside. Here, you might just feel like you’re in a movie, as there are no stoplights to be found, and you’re more likely to find horses there than cars… The Pie Town Café got its name back in the 1920s and serves the best New Mexican apple pies made with green chilies and piñon nuts. Hungry travelers stop by this town to buy supplies and snacks while enjoying… you guessed it, PIES!

6. Popcorn, Indiana

The next time you go to a movie theatre, you will never stop thinking about the state of Indiana. Popcorn, Indiana, got its name from the company Popcorn, that grows heirloom-in-hormone kernels on GMO-free soil. It is a very small town with a population of (gasp!) only 42 people. Word has it that the town was named after the nearby Popcorn Creek.

7. Two Egg, Florida

This unique little Florida town earned its name during the Great Depression, a time when unemployment and hunger strikes had peaked in American history. Citizens relied on barter where they traded goods for supplies. But how exactly did Two Egg got its name? The story goes that one day, two boys came into a local store here to exchange two eggs for a cup of sugar. The two did it so regularly that the people there started calling it a “two egg store.” A traveling salesmen would then refer to it as a ‘two egg” town to neighboring towns. The rest is history!

Who says you can’t curate your own whacky American vacation touring these food towns? Unveil your best food-themed travel ideas to Fayyaz Travels today, and you’ll be surprised at how easily it can come true with our help!
