Iowa is truly the Heartland. The Midwest. The hardworking, farm and ag loving people here seem to all agree on one thing: Spicy foods aren't for us (I don't agree with this assessment for the record). Here's why I say this, other than the fact most people I know who were born and raised here dislike spicy foods. A new article from Grill Cook Bake found each states favorite BBQ sauce for chicken wings and, our is very, very mild.

Honey BBQ 

Yep, the spice-less, albeit delicious and safe option. I do love honey BBQ as much as the next guy, or Iowan, but I also like my wins to challenge my pallet. Make my mouth both water and cry at the same time. Maybe I'd be better served going to Arkansas where they picked Hot Buffalo as their favorite.

The study also determined Iowan's prefer RANCH with their wings over blue cheese - DUH, it's ranch! And that we prefer the Bone-In or traditional wings to boneless.

So, anyone else's mouth watering? I think I know what's for dinner tonight. Mhmm. But sorry, it won't be honey BBQ slathered on my wings...
