Recommended Posts

Ouch. AOL is the best they could come up with for Virginia? And Saks is from Alabama? I bet snooty Manhattanites who shop there don't know that ...

I didn't understand the Saks = AL either.  Saks' corporate offices are in NYC; their operations center is located in MS.  Only one Saks store in AL (in Birmingham).

The author says that she didn't necessarily pick the most popular brand from that state, because it wasn't a good representation or it was too easy or something funny.

Here in Pittsburgh, I'd say the most ubiquitous local brand is probably Heinz, but from a state-wide perspective, it's hard to go wrong with Hershey ...

Bite me, Rhode Island haters.

 

If it weren't for Roger Williams and his followers, you wouldn't be allowed to dance in America.

Is Dr Pepper the most dominant brand from Texas? What other possibilities are there? Mobil? Dell? Halliburton?

I believe that the person who created it said Exxon was the most popular name from Texas, but she chose DP for whatever reason.

Nothing more pure Texan (meaning not many out of state bandwagoners...cowboys(cough)) than this:

Living outside of Texas, people just don't get the Blue Bell. Luckily, we have access to it here. Also, I can't see Kentucky from here, but it doesn't look like Makers Mark. It should be Makers Mark.

Blue Bell is the nuts. Better overall than Ben and Jerry's. Yup.

And Mass should really be Dunkin' Donuts. There are three on every corner here

Any brand map that doesn't have McDonald's for Illinois really can't be taken seriously, and of course because they included Rhode Island too...but that goes without saying.

Also, I don't like the Dr Pepper choice. Why give Waco the pleasure?

There is no pleasure in Waco, it's against University Policy...
