Frogs are made in Texas. And while my folks never allowed me to actually consume one, they sure were tasty to carry around in my mouth. They're spicy, and your mouth gets all foamy!

I think the humans call Texas Frogs a "delicacy." I know I sure do.

What about all those famous cheese cities? Cheddar, Lindbery, Monteray (Monteray Jack), Pawvalone and Kraft Macaronni? You need to do a post about the cheese cities.
