8 Foods Only People from New Jersey Know About

The Daily Meal
 
If you grew up in New Jersey and have spent any time living outside of it since then, you’ve probably been faced with a few harsh realities. For one, everyone thinks you pronounce it “joisey,” when literally nobody in the state says it that way. Two, the bagels and pizza outside of Jersey (even in New York) really don’t compare. Three, that classic diner experience can’t be replicated anywhere else. And four, well, there are certain foods that people outside of Jersey just don’t really get. Here are eight of them.

Start with the Taylor roll and disco fries, rippers and Texas weiners.

NJ Vocabulary: What is a Ripper?  Philadelphia has the cheesesteak, Chicago has deep-dish pizza and Portland has whatever the hell kale is — but when it comes to regional cuisine, nothing is quite as unique and delicious as the Ripper at Rutt’s Hut in Clifton.  Rutt’s Hut opened in 1928, and it didn’t take long for the eatery to become the preeminent hot dog joint in North Jersey. The original owners, Royal “Abe” Rutt and his wife Anna created the unique Ripper, which brings us to today’s Vocabulary Word: Ripper – Noun. A deep-fried hot dog cooked until the skin rips open.  Example: “I know it’s only 9 in the morning, but I’m going to get some Rippers. Anyone want to come?”  https://bestofnj.com/nj-vocabulary-ripper

Disco fries:  Cheese fries with gravy (french fries with cheese melted on top, covered with chicken gravy.Mmmm.), generally served at diners in Northeast New Jersey.

And here's how it looks at the grocery store, sort of Jersey Spam:
