Taste of Tennessee
When in Tennessee, do as Tennesseans do: slather a slice of country ham in red-eye gravy, throw back a glass of Jack Daniel’s or dig into a plate of Memphis dry-rub barbecue.
RC Cola and Moon PieFirst invented at Chattanooga Bakery, moon pies are a Tennessee tradition. In the 1950s stores began selling moon pies and RC Cola together. The combination was the inspiration for the ’50s hit “Gimme an RC Cola and a Moon Pie,” as well as the annual RC Cola & Moon Pie Festival.
Stack cakeAn Appalachian specialty, stack cake is made of thin layers of cake with an apple filling between each. Legend has it that the cakes were originally a wedding tradition -- guests would each bring a layer, and the number of layers represented the popularity of the bride. 960 1280
