You can’t see this classic West Virginia snack on the bridge without grabbing one! But our all-time-favorite food can be found all across the state, too, in grocery stores, gas stations and pretty much anywhere we sell snacks!

You can even try the original at the bakery credited with creating this tasty treat: the Country Club Bakery in Fairmont.

4. Taste Of Bridge Day

If Taste of Bridge Day has you counting down the days til next year, make reservations at the restaurants that make it so... well, tasty.
