Everyone loves classic comfort foods, and some of the delicacies are even better when they’re from your hometown.

That’s why Stacker mapped out the best signature foods from every state.

They’re all beloved treats, not meant to help you “shed any pounds or take inches off the waistline,” the data journalism hub notes.

But for some states, it was no easy task:

“The trouble is, most states have a cornucopia of foods to hold up as their iconic dishes, opening up endless opportunities for debate and disagreement.
“(For example), New York’s signature food might be the bagel, especially one smeared with cream cheese and topped with lox, but what about thin-crust pizza, spicy buffalo wings, and zesty Manhattan clam chowder?”

So, which treats stood out to Stacker in its “mouthwatering and not at all scientific” quest for each state’s signature foods?

Unsurprisingly, Georgia’s signature food is peach cobbler.

Here’s what Stacker wrote about the Peach State:

“Although peanuts and Brunswick stew might be Georgia favorites, peach cobbler wins as the state’s signature dish. With more than 40 commercial varieties, Georgia produces about 2.6 million bushels of peaches each year. A renowned spot to taste peach cobbler is the iconic Mary Mac’s Tea Room in Atlanta’s Midtown neighborhood.”
