Massachusetts: Boston cream pie
Boston cream pie, which is actually cake, was introduced during the grand opening of Boston’s Parker House (now Omni Parker House) in 1865. Since then, it’s become a tourist attraction and official dessert of Massachusetts. Originally named “chocolate cream pie,” Boston cream pie is a two-layer cake filled with pastry cream, topped with chocolate icing, and coated with toasted almond slivers on all sides.
Michigan: Sanders Bumpy Cake
Considered the unofficial dessert of metropolitan Detroit, thousands of Michiganders have grown up on Sanders Bumpy Cake. The first Sanders shop opened in 1875, with 57 locations now churning out cakes and chocolates. The Bumpy Cake stands out for its decadently moist chocolate cake, topped with thick, silky, chocolate fudge and hiding rows (or “bumps”) of perfectly sweet vanilla buttercream.
Minnesota: Bundt cake
Mississippi: Mississippi mud pie
Due to its name, Mississippi mud pie has become synonymous with Mississippi. No one really knows the true origins of the pie, but variations on its recipe involve a cookie crust topped with ice cream, marshmallows, whipped cream, pudding, cake, and sometimes liquor.
Missouri: Ice cream cone
Montana: Huckleberry ice cream
Nebraska: Tin roof sundae
Warm marshmallow cream and skin-on Spanish peanuts tops the famous tin roof sundae, named after the tin ceiling of the soda shop. Originating in the 1930s inside The Potter Drug Co. in Potter, Nebraska, the original is still available today.
Nevada: Basque cake

Warm doughnuts smelling of apple, cinnamon, and nutmeg are a real treat on a cool fall or winter day in New Hampshire. The addition of local apple cider adds flavor and acidity to the sweet treats, which are easy to find at bakeries and farmers markets throughout the state.
New Jersey: Blueberry pie
Blueberry pies are abundant in the Garden State because Hammonton, New Jersey, is the “Blueberry Capital of the World.” An annual festival takes place, along with a blueberry-pie-eating contest. Some New Jersey farms even invite locals to pick their own blueberries for homemade pies.
