QUIZ BLISS | Quiz Facts

Calling all Ohio natives, here is a quiz that was literally made for you! Do you think you know the Buckeye state like the back of your hand? It's probably a good start if you do indeed know what a Buckeye is. It has multiple meanings, as it is the Ohio State University Mascot, a type of tree nut, and also a delicious sweet treat that is iconic to the state. If you're snacking on the edible buckeye treat that means you're digging into a peanut butter fudge ball dipped in chocolate. Yum! You Ohioans really know how to make up some tasty dishes. Like Cincinnati Skyline chili, AKA delicious meaty chili served over spaghetti. Hungry yet?

Even if you're not the biggest fan of these traditional Ohio dishes, you probably at least know OF them. And there's so much more to the Buckeye State than just food. There's of course favorite local grocery stores like Meijers' and Kroger, Cedar Point, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and not to be forgotten, the Football Hall of Fame. Whoever thought Ohio is just a flyover state in the Midwest is so, so wrong. Your home state is always going to be special to you, whether you live there now, moved away from there, or recently moved there from a different state. Each of the 50 states have their own particular personalities and quirks and they're especially noticeable after you've spent some time in other states, since they ARE all so different. If you think you're ready to put your Ohio knowledge to the test, then go ahead and start this quiz. It might be trickier than you think.
