Iowans: Have You Ever Tried This Weird Food Combination?

A new viral Tweet is making the rest of the country look at us questionably.

I’ve tried a lot of “Iowa” foods and food combinations since moving here, but THIS is something I’ve never ever seen before. Last week, a student at Iowa State University tweeted out a couple of photos, and the caption said, “You ain’t from Iowa if you never had one of these.” What was he talking about? Oh, I don’t know… how about a Pop Tart and cheese sandwich! What?!

If you’re confused, you’re not the only one. It seems like most Iowans on Twitter are shocked by this generalization that everyone in our state eats this (seemingly disgusting) strange food combination. My favorite response so far is from the Iowa State Police Department:

So the question is, was this guy SERIOUS? According to the Des Moines Register, Chris Jorgensen was actually just experimenting when he posted this tweet. He’s seen other gross food tweets before, so he tried to create one of his own. The article states, “Jorgensen wasn’t originally planning to take a bite, but he said his roommates told him he needed to if he was going to tweet about it.” 

I think most Iowans saw this post and knew immediately that it wasn’t true, but the problem is that people from other states didn’t! I actually had a friend in Michigan send me the tweet with a vomiting face emoji and I had to explain that, although I’m not FROM Iowa, I’ve never seen anyone eat such an abomination. Chris told the Des Moines Register, “I think I’ve done some damage to the state of Iowa.”
