Is their some sort of process that makes it sweet tea, other than adding sugar to regular tea?
I was in VA a couple weeks ago, visiting a friend, and I must say that one of my favorite things about that fair state is the ready availability of quality iced tea. Up here, it's all made from syrup instead of tea leaves.
Also, when you ask for "tea," they just give you sweetened iced tea. You wacky Southerners...

During my high school years in Charlotte, NC, I worked at McDonald's for about a year or so. The standard recipe was for a few cups of sugar per drum, but I swear people would keep asking us to add more until in was about 20% sugar. Why people would come up to the line and ask me to sweeten their tea for them instead of adding it themselves was beyond me, however. I think Virginia's on the border of the sweetened/normal tea Mason-Dixon line. Many restaurants have it, but it's not automatic like it is a little further south.

It's not a law up here in Wisconsin...just standard operating procedure. :-)
I present to you the majesty of: The Penguin Brat. Named after its creator's employer, The Penguin drive-in in Manitowoc, it goes like this here:
Take deliciously parboiled bratwurst. Slice lengthwise almost all the way through for a butterfly cut. Place cheddar cheese inside. Fold bratwurst back up. Wrap now-stuffed bratwurst with bacon. Deep-fry the WHOLE MOTHERF*CKIN' THING. Eat...and listen to your arteries clog. Bun optional. Ketchup, mustard, onions and sauerkraut mandantory.

Damn, and here I was thinking I had found heaven with the deep fried Polish Sausage down at Depot near Comiskey Park. That is the single most glorious sounding thing I have ever heard of in my entire life. Certainly the best thing to ever come out of Wisconsin Now just add some deep fried mozzerella sticks and a big order of cheese fries and I think you could market that as "Heart Attack In A Box"
