The 10 Most Texas Things About Texas That Make It the Greatest State in the Union

ThinkStock

Hello, I’m from Texas. What country are y’all from?

There are so many great things about Texas it’s impossible to put them all down here, unless we had years of time. But there are some things about the Lone Star State that just … well, SCREAM Texas.

These are the things that set us apart from the outside world. The things that make Texas impossible to leave. The things that make us damn proud to live in the greatest state (and former country) in the world.

Whataburger

 

 

Whether it’s a #1 with cheese or a Breakfast on a Bun at 3 a.m. after a fun night out, Whataburger just works. And the fact that you can buy the ketchup in HEB stores is just … heaven.

And make that ketchup spicy.

Blue Bell

 

 

You don’t even have to add “ice cream” when you say Blue Bell.

And nothin’ fancy. Plain vanilla is just fine.

High School Football

 

 

We build $60 million high school football stadiums. Our state championships are played in a billion-dollar stadium. We’ve produced names like Earl Campbell, Adrian Peterson, Don Meredith, Eric Dickerson and Mean Joe Green.

You’re welcome, NFL. You’re welcome.

Lone Star Beer

 

 

Nothing screams Texas like the National Beer of Texas.

Oh, look. There’s Blue Bell again.

Barbecue

 

 

Other states can only hope to do barbecue like Texas.

Exhibit A:

Texas Music

 

 

Whether it’s Texas country, Texas southern rock, a mix of the two or maybe even some Texas blues, we’ve got a whole niche carved out just for bands from Texas.

We even create some cool websites for the genre, too.

Tex-Mex

 

 

No words necessary.

The Dallas Cowboys

 

 

You don’t get labeled “America’s Team” for no reason.

And I just used a double-negative there. Why? Because I’m from Texas.

The Open Road

 

 

Because Texas.

Dr Pepper

 

 

Accept no substitutes.

And don’t put a period after “Dr” either.
