On August 30, Food & Wine magazine tweeted a link to an article, originally published by Southern Living, headlined "The South's Most Beloved Appetizer Starts With a Sleeve of Saltines." The subject of the story was "fire crackers" (sometimes called "Alabama fire crackers") — saltines coated with onion powder, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and dry ranch dressing mix, then briefly baked.

The results are crisp, slightly spicy little mouthfuls that fall firmly into the "bet you can't eat just one" category.

"Most beloved," though? The Twittersphere wasn't buying it.

More than 150 responses, not all of them polite, took issue with that characterization of the saltines.

I'm a southerner. Never heard of this. Saltines go in soup or chili, or in emergencies with pepperoni and cheese if you don't have ritz.

Others dismissed fire crackers as a regional peculiarity.

please direct me to the "southerner" who told you this was our most "beloved"

Some tweets proposed that pimento cheese, cheese straws, boiled peanuts, or even oysters would have been better choices for the honor, while others outright claimed to have never even heard of the thing.

I'm from the south and I never heard of this it's not anybody's beloved anything.

South...as in South Korea? South America? Southeast Asia? South Dakota? Wtf I've never seen or heard of that in SC, NC, FL, GA, VA or WV.

The author of the article, well-known recipe developer and food writer Sheri Castle, seemed bemused by all the to-do. "That was originally a blog post published around the 4th of July," she told The Daily Meal, "and that headline was added after-market. One should never claim that anything is 'most beloved' or 'most popular' — and I never used the word appetizer. It's just a snack. But of course people tend to view their most beloved cuisine from their own vantage point, and if they've never heard of this, it doesn't exist for them."

She added, "It's just a cracker. A surprisingly delicious little thing. If you've never had them, they're easy, they're quick, they're tasty. Give them a go."

We won't say "beloved" here, but these 24 Southern dishes are pretty much essential.


31 Gourmet Food Gifts for Everyone on Your List

From the perfect corporate present to a feast for your favorite cheese-lover, we have it all.

Don't ever underestimate the power of food when it comes to gift-giving. Whether you want to share your city's best bites with a faraway loved one, do something nice for a coworker or a friend, or plan a celebratory evening, a beautifully wrapped treat will win the day. Here, gourmet food gifts for everyone on your list (don't forget the wine!).

What's better than a surf and turf dinner on the town? A ready-to-grill dinner of Premium Angus Beef filet mignons, sirloins, or New York strip steaks paired with 6 oz lobster tails ready to grill up in the privacy of your own home.

Your snack-loving deskmate will adore this mix of healthy (and less healthy) bites including salted brown butter cookies, white cheddar popcorn, handmade NYC pretzels, peanut butter puffs, everything bagel-flavored nuts, and much more.

If you're looking to gift a sweet treat, look no further than this curated set of pints from San Fransisco's famed Humphry Slocombe. The pints include six fan favorites like their Blue Bottle Vietnamese Coffee (a blend of Blue Bottle organic coffee, sweetened condensed milk, and chicory), Malted Milk Chocolate, Salted Caramel Cocoa Nib, and perennial favorite Secret Breakfast (bourbon ice cream studded with cornflake cookies).

A cocktail party in a box. This collection of four cheeses (creamy brie, nutty gruyere, subtle manchego, and tangy English cheddar) chosen by the experts at the famed New York cheese shop pair perfectly with their spiced cherry preserves, olive oil crackers with sea salt, and marcona almonds.

For the serious coffee fiend, four packets of freshly roasted whole coffee beans from unique growing regions around the world offer the opportunity to really expand their palette.

Nothing will delight your favorite chocolate fiend more than this collection of sweets including everything from decadent chocolate cake to truffles, malt balls, and even chocolate covered pretzels.

We all have someone on our list who puts hot sauce on everything, and now you can make sure they always have something new to try with this year-long subscription that delivers the tastiest hot sauces (12 in all) from small-batch purveyors all over the country right to their door.

Sending someone nice caviar is like giving them a party in a (very chic) tin. Chef Thomas Keller developed this caviar with his chefs at The French Laundry, which is to say it is delicious. Don't forget to include potato chips and crème fraîche for the full experience.

This year has given many of us a new appreciation for our spice cabinets, and in turn a new appreciation for the value of spices and where they come from. This brand, dedicated to making the Indian spice trade more equitable, works to support farmers and create more sustainable agricultural processes. Of course, the fact that their single original turmeric, cumin, pepper, are all the most flavorful versions of them you've ever tasted certainly doesn't hurt either.

You can never go wrong with bacon. Or, in this case, a bacon flight, featuring three different types of everybody's favorite salty treat: applewood and hickory smoked bacons made from heritage breed pork, and D'Artagnan's signature duck bacon.

Give yourself a taste of classic NYC in this special package from the famous appetizer shop Russ & Daughters, including bagels, the restaurant's famous smoked salmon, and a chocolate babka, plus cream cheese and coffee, of course.

A perfect bite-sized treat, these miniature versions of this South Carolina bakery's pink champagne cake features decadent champagne-infused cake dipped in white chocolate for easy eating. You'll never go back to cupcakes again.

In 2019, for the first time ever, an American-made cheese took home the top honors at the World Cheese Awards in Bergamo, Italy. That cheese? Rogue Creamery&rsquos Rogue River Blue Cheese. Naturally, the 2019 batch promptly sold out, but for a patriotic cheese aficionado, what could be better than a sampler of the creamery's other beloved blues?

Imagine someone who wouldn't be delighted to open up a box of these decadent chocolates filled with worldly flavors like dulce de leche, olive oil, and pasilla chiles. We'll wait.

These hot sauces and honeys are all handmade in South Carolina from local ingredients. Unlike most hot sauces, they are meant to enhance other flavors, not totally dominate the dish. We particularly like drizzling the hot honey on pizza or chicken and biscuits.

Nothing goes better with a luxe brunch than a good Bloody Mary, and these artisan blends made from fresh produce from this family-owned Alabama brand (plus pickled okra for garnish) definitely qualify.

The meal prepper on your list will appreciate the head start this box filled with succulent proteins gives them. The Basics Box comes with 4 pasture-raised chicken breasts, 2 boneless sirloin steaks, and a pound of dry aged ground beef, but there are half a dozen other boxes to choose from including all-beef, beef and pork, a box for the grillmaster, and even a breakfast-focused box, all of them available to be delivered every 2, 4, or 8 weeks.

Give their comfort food and upgrade with this selection of indulgent cacio e pepe macaroni and cheese and truffle macaroni and cheese from Wolfgang Puck. Both are made with housemade cavatappi pasta and lush cheeses that make for an irresistible treat.

If you're looking to gift a sweet treat, look no further than this curated set of pints from San Fransisco's famed Humphry Slocombe. The pints include six fan favorites like their Blue Bottle Vietnamese Coffee (a blend of Blue Bottle organic coffee, sweetened condensed milk, and chicory), Malted Milk Chocolate, Salted Caramel Cocoa Nib, and perennial favorite Secret Breakfast (bourbon ice cream studded with cornflake cookies).

A cocktail party in a box. This collection of four cheeses (creamy brie, nutty gruyere, subtle manchego, and tangy English cheddar) chosen by the experts at the famed New York cheese shop pair perfectly with their spiced cherry preserves, olive oil crackers with sea salt, and marcona almonds.

For the serious coffee fiend, four packets of freshly roasted whole coffee beans from unique growing regions around the world offer the opportunity to really expand their palette.

Nothing will delight your favorite chocolate fiend more than this collection of sweets including everything from decadent chocolate cake to truffles, malt balls, and even chocolate covered pretzels.

We all have someone on our list who puts hot sauce on everything, and now you can make sure they always have something new to try with this year-long subscription that delivers the tastiest hot sauces (12 in all) from small-batch purveyors all over the country right to their door.

Sending someone nice caviar is like giving them a party in a (very chic) tin. Chef Thomas Keller developed this caviar with his chefs at The French Laundry, which is to say it is delicious. Don't forget to include potato chips and crème fraîche for the full experience.

This year has given many of us a new appreciation for our spice cabinets, and in turn a new appreciation for the value of spices and where they come from. This brand, dedicated to making the Indian spice trade more equitable, works to support farmers and create more sustainable agricultural processes. Of course, the fact that their single original turmeric, cumin, pepper, are all the most flavorful versions of them you've ever tasted certainly doesn't hurt either.

You can never go wrong with bacon. Or, in this case, a bacon flight, featuring three different types of everybody's favorite salty treat: applewood and hickory smoked bacons made from heritage breed pork, and D'Artagnan's signature duck bacon.

Give yourself a taste of classic NYC in this special package from the famous appetizer shop Russ & Daughters, including bagels, the restaurant's famous smoked salmon, and a chocolate babka, plus cream cheese and coffee, of course.

A perfect bite-sized treat, these miniature versions of this South Carolina bakery's pink champagne cake features decadent champagne-infused cake dipped in white chocolate for easy eating. You'll never go back to cupcakes again.

In 2019, for the first time ever, an American-made cheese took home the top honors at the World Cheese Awards in Bergamo, Italy. That cheese? Rogue Creamery&rsquos Rogue River Blue Cheese. Naturally, the 2019 batch promptly sold out, but for a patriotic cheese aficionado, what could be better than a sampler of the creamery's other beloved blues?

Imagine someone who wouldn't be delighted to open up a box of these decadent chocolates filled with worldly flavors like dulce de leche, olive oil, and pasilla chiles. We'll wait.

These hot sauces and honeys are all handmade in South Carolina from local ingredients. Unlike most hot sauces, they are meant to enhance other flavors, not totally dominate the dish. We particularly like drizzling the hot honey on pizza or chicken and biscuits.

Nothing goes better with a luxe brunch than a good Bloody Mary, and these artisan blends made from fresh produce from this family-owned Alabama brand (plus pickled okra for garnish) definitely qualify.

The meal prepper on your list will appreciate the head start this box filled with succulent proteins gives them. The Basics Box comes with 4 pasture-raised chicken breasts, 2 boneless sirloin steaks, and a pound of dry aged ground beef, but there are half a dozen other boxes to choose from including all-beef, beef and pork, a box for the grillmaster, and even a breakfast-focused box, all of them available to be delivered every 2, 4, or 8 weeks.

Give their comfort food and upgrade with this selection of indulgent cacio e pepe macaroni and cheese and truffle macaroni and cheese from Wolfgang Puck. Both are made with housemade cavatappi pasta and lush cheeses that make for an irresistible treat.
