    Independence Day

    Obviously Idaho did not invent Independence Day, but Idaho did become a state on July 3rd 1890 making Independence Day better as soon as it did. Idahoans love the United State and independence.

    Chicken Fingers

    Ok, Idahoans didn't make chicken fingers, they don't even eat that many. But they did make them better by making them finger steaks. Everything tastes better with steak.

    Fry Sauce

    There is some debate whether Idaho created fry sauce or if it was Utah. Either way, even if Idaho didn't come up with the idea, they perfected the ratio of ketchup and mayonnaise. Idaho fry sauce is the best fry sauce.

    Nachos are delicious don't get me wrong, but have you ever had Idaho nachos?! Those are phenomenal. Substituting potatoes for the chips is a genius move that made nachos even better.

    Ice Cream

    Have you ever had an ice cream potato or huckleberry ice cream? Enough said.

  • 6

    Straw Maze

    Idaho did not create the straw maze but they did perfect it by having the largest temporary straw bale maze ever in Rupert, Idaho.

    Idaho perfected the ghost town and exploring some hauntings. Between the ghost towns all over the place, the Idaho Penitentiary and the Gooding TB Hospital there are lots of places for ghost hunters.
