It’s finally the 4th of July! Well, almost. One of the things we’re most excited about here at CYY is the grilling aspect of Independence Day – nothing screams freedom like a big ol’ burger. So, in celebration of America’s birthday, here are the 4 items we’re looking forward to munching on tomorrow! In the meantime, we’ll be enjoying our evening off with glasses of powder-lemonade in front of the AC.

Red Snapper Hot Dogs
The classic, the legend, the red snapper. Known for their bright red color and definitive snapping sound when you take a bite, these have long been a favorite in the state of Maine. Oddly enough, though, they have yet to peak in popularity anywhere else. Well, more for us then!

Lobster Rolls
Even though the vast majority of lobster rolls are consumed by tourists these days, Mainers still pull out this staple of state cuisine for the fourth. If you don’t feel like making one yourself, try one from the Bite Into Maine food truck at Fort Williams!

Whoopie Pies
Yet another Maine must-have, whoopie pies are the icing on the cake of a good fourth barbecue. Heck, with some local bakeries making huge whoopie pies nowadays, it would be the cake!

Allen’s Coffee Brandy
If you didn’t see this coming, then you’re not from Maine. Normally taken hot in coffee during the colder months, this ubiquitous drink will show up in late-night mixers once the kids have gone to bed. Cheers, and don’t stay up too late!

Well, there’s our list. Did we miss your favorite food item? Let us know in the comments!
