The 9 best foods from Florida

posted by Brian Munchie - 

Living in Florida we are surrounded by both fresh and saltwater and of course, citrus trees! Here are the 9 best foods from Florida that make the rest of the country jealous! 

1. Florida Orange Juice. 

Every glass of Florida Orange Juice is full of vitamin C, potassium, folate, no added sugar and tastes great! 

Drinking an 8-ounce glass of Florida Orange Juice every morning is a simple way to get vitamins and nutrients with no sugar added that may play a role in a healthier lifestyle for 2018. Link in bio.

Sure, Orange Juice is tasty, add some champagne and you get mimosas, but what else can you do with Oranges? How about a Face Mask? 

2. The Cuban Sandwich

A traditional Cuban sandwich is made with ham, roasted pork, Swiss cheese, pickles, mustard, and salami on Cuban bread. The Cuban sandwich originated in cafes catering to Cuban workers in Ybor City and Key West. Ybor City and the surrounding areas are still the go to destination for a tasty Cuban sandwich.

3. Key lime pie
Key Lime Pie originated in Key West Florida and is made using a "Key Lime" which is smaller and seedier and has a higher acidity, stronger aroma, and a thinner rind, than that of a traditional lime. 

Took four years to grow these limes he says! What a well worth four years it's been for a banging key lime pie! #keylimepie #homrgrownlimes #homegrown #citrus #pie #tart #sweettooth #foodie #chefslife #sundaytreat #dessert #lime #limes #chefsofinstagram #happiness #yumo

7. Kumquats

The edible Kumquats fruit closely resembles the orange, however it is much smaller, about the size and shape of a large olive.
