thrillist.com – If you could only eat in one state for the rest of your life, what state would it be?

After all, one person’s Maine lobster binge is another person’s shellfish allergy-induced emergency room visit. Nonetheless, our intrepid panel (which is unbiased at least in the sense of being completely omnivorous) put its best taste buds forward and devised this unassailable hierarchy of state-by-state deliciousness. Enjoy, and then feel free to assail it (and them) in the comments.
