#5: Fall Foods

As we go through the list of top ten reasons why fall is great, we arrive at number five, fall foods. Let’s take a look at what fall has to offer.

Tailgating Food


With the NFL and College Football resuming in September, along with football comes tailgating. Standard tailgates will have your typical fan favorites of burgers and dogs. What I love is all the regional foods you find at tailgating. Bratwursts in Wisconsin and Chicago, BBQ in Kansas City, St. Louis, Carolina, and parts of Texas, Crab Boils in Maryland, Chowder in New England, Sushi out west, this is what makes tailgating exciting and a part of fall foods.


Oktoberfest Food


We talked about Oktoberfest Beers with #6 Best Thing About Fall, Craft Beers, it is only fair we bring up Oktoberfest food. Brats and Sauerkraut, Schnitzel, and anything involving beer and cheese. This along with the beers and festivals are what make Oktoberfest great.


Pumpkin Pie….well Pumpkin Anything


Pumpkin Pie is Grandma’s staple fall treat. It is a great October through Thanksgiving, well even through the end of the year dish. Along with this can be included Pumpkin breads, Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, and any Pumpkin Treats.


Fall Harvest Foods


Corn, Apples, Blueberries, Cherries, Zucchini, Tomatoes, Squashes, and Cranberries to name a few all come into season in the fall. They are great by themselves or made into dishes. About.com has a great list of fall harvest foods, some may surprise you.




Thanksgiving celebrated the 4th Thursday in November every year in the United States. Thanksgiving comes complete with Turkey, Stuffing, and all the fixings. There is no fall without a Thanksgiving feast.
