I’ve never heard of anyone from Baltimore or Seattle or Atlanta or Philadelphia having canned local food shipped to them "for an emergency or special occasion." With so many losing sports teams, depressing election results and a national reputation for weirdness (Jerry Springer, Marge Schott, Larry Flint, Maplethorpe censorship, race riots), this is the one thing we hold onto with pride.
Having lived in Cincy for the past decade I have come to love the 3 way delacacy. Whenever I travel back to San Diego,Detroit, or Cleveland I always bring a couple of cases of Dixie Chili with me to share this great concoction with family and friends. Those who love it get a case sent with instructions each Christmas. I also share my true Hometown favorite my with local friends in Cincy buy ordering in Koegels Hot Dogs and Coney Sauce from Detroit and show them how a true Coney Dog is made. I just wish I could find a way to order a Rubios Fish Taco or a Robertos Carne Asada Burrito from San Diego to Cincinnati.
