It seems like yesterday that I feel in love with Goo Goo Clusters, the iconic Southern candy As I wandered along Broadway in downtown Nashville in 2014, I couldn't think of the night's upcoming Tin Pan South concert; I couldn't think of meeting up with my friend that I hadn't seen since a Dave Matthews Band concert in 2012; I couldn't even think of the fact that my boyfriend of two-and-a-half years had just dumped me. All I could think was: "Where can I get my hands on another Goo Goo Cluster?" (As luck would have it, I was around the corner from their 3rd Ave S shop.)

This Is the Best Dish To Bring to a Funeral

  This Is the Best Dish To Bring to a Funeral In the South, food is always the answer. No matter the occasion—baby shower, bridal luncheon, birthday party, backyard cookout—the immediate question that follows an invitation is, “What can I bring?” Food is an expression of emotion: love, appreciation, celebration, sympathy. When a Southerner dies, mourners immediately assume their positions in the kitchen, preparing offerings of heartfelt condolence for the deceased’s family the best way they know how: cooking up comforting casseroles, funeral potatoes, and baked hams. When we’re a loss for words, feeding people is our traditional response. So what’s the best dish to bring to a funeral? Offer a platter of classic Southern comfort: fried chicken. The ultimate finger food, fried chicken soothes any Southerner’s soul. You might have trouble finding an empty spot on the dining table when you arrive for the visitation, but room will always be made for this cure-all food. It can be eaten hot during the gathering or snacked on cold the next day (which, arguably, tastes even better). Mississippi etiquette experts Gayden Metcalfe and Charlotte Hays tout fried chicken as one of the top 10 foods to bring to a funeral, and cookbook author Perre Coleman Magness lists fried chicken as the number one in her Southern Sympathy Cookbook. WATCH: Funeral Etiquette Every Southerner Should Know There’s special something about a seemingly ordinary piece of fried chicken. You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t have a fond memory attached to the food, be it a favorite recipe or a loved one who made it; it’s a culinary tie that binds. Fry a homemade batch or pick up a container from your favorite takeout spot—it doesn’t matter. You’ll offer comfort to those who are grieving with a smile and a crispy, golden-brown drumstick.

But it doesn't matter if the parking lot overlooks a mountain range or a desert, a serene coastline or the plains, a truck stop or a Great Lake: every Cracker Barrel is a carbon copy of the next one, stretching into infinity. Drink . Lifestyle. New Orleans. All.

I Tried 12 Snack Cheeses, and This Is the Best One .
Sometimes you need cheese in a portable size.Cheese. Just saying the word makes you smile—and not because photographers ask us to say it when we pose. No, cheese is the miracle that makes pizza and quesadillas and cheeseburgers so delicious and, frankly, it’s even better on its own. But, unfortunately, we can’t stay home all day and gnaw on a half-pound wheel of gouda or emmentaler (or, wait, can we?). Thus, we need portable, snackable cheese. Here are 12 widely available snack cheeses—some are string cheese, some not—ranked from worst to best.
