Naming is an unusual process. Let’s face it — be it food or person, names are extremely important to us. Very often, the first piece of information we have about anything or anyone is the name. If you’re at a noisy party with hundreds of people around and someone calls your name, it’ll rise up above the din and you’ll hear it. That’s because it catches attention in a way that a lot of other stimuli don’t.

Now this has some interesting implications. One that we are too ingrained to shake – we tend to like what we are like. Since foodies are an unusual breed, naturally, the weirdness is passed on to the foods they love best. People from the Midwest are no different. With the unusual geography and their strange catchphrases, the Midwestern’s food are expected to be just as confusing. It sort of comes with the territory, it seems.
