Other Buffalo foods of note

I could go on and on about foods from Buffalo, but in an effort to move on I shall give these foods their due. In no way do I mean them any less respect than those above. If I have missed a favorite of yours, please let me know and I will add it to the nod list.

  •  Sahlen's Hot Dogs The real deal; known to have been smuggled across county and even state lines in coolers and suitcases by various friends and relatives; the official hot dog of the Buffalo Bills
  •  Weber's Mustard Several varieties but classic horseradish and hot Texan sandwich mustard are my favorites
  • Chiavetta’s barbeque marinade: Required for anything you put on the grill
  • Chef’s pasta sauce: A traditional classic for decades
  • Anchor Bar wing sauce: I prefer Frank’s Red Hot, but since the Anchor bar invented the wing their sauce appears in stores everywhere
  • Parkside Candy: Been around since the 1920s; makes an appearance in the movie “The Natural” with Robert Redford
  • Shredded Wheat: Technically a Niagara Falls product, the grain silos still stand tribute to the cereal giant
  • Cheerios: All of the little whole-grain Os distributed along the east coast are made in Buffalo, prompting sales of t-shirts declaring “My City Smells Like Cheerios”
