I don't know about you, but I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a BIG fan of bar food. Nachos, wings, deep fried anything... I'm down for all of it. Actually, a deep fried food item is exactly what we're about to discuss! According to Thrillist, corn nuggets are the unofficial best bar food in the state of Iowa.

To be totally honest with you, until I moved to Iowa, I had never even HEARD of corn nuggets, so it makes sense that they would be the Iowa choice. Thrillist states:

"Fried vegetables show up in many forms on bar menus around the US, but few capture a states essence as well as the Iowan corn nugget. Because of the state’s vast corn fields, they show up on menus around the state. These are fritters packed with corn kernels. The batter may be flour, cornmeal, or a combination of those. Corn may be fresh, canned, or creamed. One thing is for sure, these are potential lip burners. Drink your beer and have some patience."

In honor of corn nuggets, here are some glorious photos of them I found on Instagram. We apologize in advance if they make you hungry!

What bar in Iowa do you think has the best corn nuggets? Let us know in the comments!
