We’re always game for a road trip that takes us to the corners of the country we’ve never seen before. We’re also always game for trying regional dishes done right. This map, composed by Orbitz, brings those two things together in the form of The Ultimate U.S. Foodie Trip. Our hatred of the term “foodie” aside, this is pretty well done. Orbitz used data from Foursquare to determine the restaurants whipping up the finest examples of regional cuisine and charted the path to each using a service from Jupyter. The result is a massive tour of the continental United States that winds through places like Key West, Seattle, L.A., and Burlington, Vermont. The interactive map is easy to navigate, so if you just want to see what the best pizza in Connecticut is, you can find it in a drop down menu on the side. Spoiler Alert: It’s Frank Pepe Pizzeria. Duh.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
