Discover South Mississippi
Only in South Mississippi will you find certain foods that the locals swear by. Made famous by Mississippi, "soul food" is a favorite. Chicken-fried steak, fried fish, ham hocks, hog jowls and more are dishes that are a staple of this state's cuisine. Seafood lovers will appreciate the gulf shrimp prepared many ways, from sauteed to fried. Visit South Mississippi, and you must try the Mississippi mud pie. A chocolate lover's dream, this dessert has a chocolate crust, a chocolate topping, and everything chocolate in the middle. Often served with ice cream (chocolate, of course), this may be the most amazing dessert you'll ever have.
