So, as I have just been informed, apparently it is only customary in my province to sell beer in corner/convenience stores, in Canada at least (don't know about other countries). Also, according to Wikipedia,
"Pineapple Crush and Birch Beer Crush is relatively easy to obtain in both can and single serving bottle in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, and in Fort McMurray, Alberta"

Pineapple Crush is the shit by the ways guys.

Anyway, what are some things (be it landforms, customs, goods, etc.) that are unique to your area?

I guess Sugar Cream Pie is an Indiana exclusive, and it was even originally made in my hometown, if I recall correctly.

I believe Kwik Trip gas stations are unique to Wisconsin. Could be wrong on that one, but I've never seen them anywhere else.

We have the place where the Mormon founder was killed in my town. And twenty minutes away us nauvoo where a ton of early Mormon history happened. That's it. I'm not Mormon, that's just the only way people know who we are.

pears. pears out the ass. pear orchards as far as the eyes can see. go to a farmers' market, you'll see Bartlett pears, Red Bartlett pears, Bosc pears, Green Anjou pears, Red Anjou pears, Comice pears, Asian pears, Seckels pears, pear cider, pear chips, pears and cheese, pear baskets, pear print clothing, pears in a jar, pears on a stick...

there's even a Pear Blossom festival each year, and a Pear Run. the biggest employer is a company that ships pears during the holidays. I've packed pears, sorted pears, made boxes for pears, made the separators (cells) for the boxes of pears, sold pears, sent replacement boxes of pears, stacked boxes of pears, put lids on boxes of pears, made towers using boxes of pears, put pears in baskets, answered questions concerning pears, unpacked boxes of bad pears, juggled pears, watched the endless rows of pears roll by on miles of conveyor belts...

I fucking hate pears.

Funny thing is, we have a strawberry festival. And absolutely no damn strawberries.

Faygo isn't local. The headquarters are in Detroit, but Faygo is everywhere. There's even a distribution center in Indianapolis.

I would consider breaking my vegetarianism to try that. I was a meat-eater for a long time, and that sounds absolutely delicious.

Anyways, um... Dolly Parton is from here? She went to my high school. Dollywood is located here.

On topic, I can also claim the Labrador Retriever as a product of my province. Not unique to here anymore, but still are technically the purest breed of the animal.

i doubt thats really unique though.

We find those around here all the time.

Anything unique about Syracuse? A shitload of snow, rare nice weather, white trash, a terrible city... nothing too unique.

Also we often tease my mom about how she can't pronounce Syracuse at all. It always comes out like Sigh-reh-coose.

My aunt and uncle live in Indiana and they were telling me about a shoe with a bunch of trees in it. I think it might be in Madison.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.
