If you've grown up in the Midwest, you may not realize that the rest of the United States doesn't love the same foods you've been eating since you were a child. From desserts to appetizers, there are numerous foods that Midwesterners love that you won't find in every state. Here are a few:
If you've never had toasted ravioli, you're definitely missing out. Ravioli is stuffed with beef, breaded lightly, and then fried or baked (usually fried – most folks in the Midwest like fried stuff).

I used to have a coworker who lived in New York (but came to St. Louis for meetings), and every single time he was in town, he would eat nothing but Imo's at his desk.
