What are the famous food out there that represents USA? (United States of America)?

I'm working on an art piece and the theme that I set for myself is United States and it's bout Food.

So, what are the famous

- Candies

- Sweets

- Soft drinks

- Fast Food (hmm mac and?)

- Famous Restaurants (the restaurant names) that you frequent

- any others

out there?

Remember, it's United States, im not just focusing on one state or city.

It will be awesome if you could list me the state/city of a particular food, like where it's originated from AND also, include the pictures (good to have as I need reference to draw them lol)

Hershey, M&M, burgers fries come to mind any others?

Thanks for your help!

    You are correct in not wanting just one particular food item as there are so many different foods that are particular to certain areas of the country..i.e.: Boston is famous for its baked beans or clam chowder; New Orleans is famous for its Cajun cuisine such as seafood gumbo, red beans and rice, a sandwich called a Po-boy, etc; other southern states such as Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia are famous for their "down-home cooking" such as stews, baked yams, biscuits (not the tea and biscuit type); Chicago is famous for pizza and so is New York; Texas is famous for barbecue and chilli..I could go on and on. But the typical idea of American food has always been hot dogs, apple pie, hamburgers, coca-cola, etc. Just a note though..we do not all eat at McDonalds.. :)
