Tasty Treats You May Not Know Are Made In Texas
If you are a loyal Texan and want to indulge your sweet tooth, do so with one of these.
Snickers - Waco, Texas
Texas, where it is said that everything is bigger, is home to the world's largest Snickers bar. This diabetes bomb is located in Waco, Texas.
It's the equivalent of 43K worth of single size candy bars, weighs almost 5,000 pounds and looks to be about the size of the body of a formula 1 race car.
Dr. Pepper - Dublin, Texas.
Dr. Pepper was originally invented in Waco, Texas but it's first bottling plant was ... and still is ... in Dublin, Texas. FYI, the original plant in Dublin no longer offers tours.
Blue Bell Ice Cream - Brenham, Texas.
In 1907 a creamery was opened in Brenham to make butter. After a few years, they started making ice cream. In 1930, the company was officially named after the Blue Bell Wildflower which grew all over the region.
Shiner Beer - Shiner, Texas, 1909
One of my most favorite subjects ... beer. Talk about loyalty and tradition, wow. The brewery was founded by Kosmos Spoetzl. He was the first brewmaster and, counting him, there have only been a total of 6 in over 100 years.
Here are a few more "made, (or, invented anyway), in Texas" goodies for you. They may not have a specific, Texas based production plant per se but they were all born in the Lone Star State
The earliest known, PRINTED pecan pie recipes are found in Texas cookbooks from the 1870's so, we get that one too.
