Wise Voter set out to identify the favorite snack in each state and from that we learned, CT's sweet tooth is king.

Wise Voter set a predetermined field of classic American snacks that included but were not limited to:

  • Fritos
  • Doritos
  • Cheetos
  • M&M's
  • Skittles

CT's favorite snack food from the list was M&M's according to the study. Our neighbors in New York and New Jersey felt the same way. As you can tell from the map below, it broke down into different snacking regions.

The Nutmeg State's Top in order were:

1 - M&M's

2 - Doritos

3 - Tostitos

4 - Cheetos

5 - Kettle

This list stinks! If I'm backed into a corner that includes these snacking options, I might have to eat my own shoes. Look, Cheetos make me feel and look orange, Fritos are way too greasy and M&M's are not the truth.

Now, if you are here to tell me I can have Almond, Peanut or Peanut Butter M&M's, I'm willing to talk to you. If you say I can have Cool Ranch Doritos as opposed to original Doritos we can have a conversation like adults but I'm not eating regular Doritos or M&M's unless there is a serious snack emergency.

Why is it CT always comes up looking boring in these surveys, polls and studies? Some of the wildest and most unique individuals I've ever met come from CT, and I've met some next-level trailblazers. These studies always say our bedtime is 6 pm, we have sex with our socks on and we love granola, only some of that is true.

Exploring Beyond the Rusty Gates of Danbury's Oldest Cemetery on Wooster Street

I live just down the block from the Wooster Street Cemetery and whenever I pass, I am always struck at how odd it is. You have this quiet, beautiful place that is dedicated to the people who were buried there, in the middle of a busy city and almost no one ever goes there. I decided to go take a deeper look around and see what was beyond the iron gates and stone walls. 

The First Night of the Danbury San Gennaro Festival Was a Huge Hit

The Italian culture can be explained in one word, Sunday. Being an Italian-American means, there are certainties on Sunday, Food, family and laughter. Trust me when I tell you, everyday is Sunday at San Gennaro.
