There's a difference between a little burnt and burnt. Some foods that are a tiny bit burnt are just plain good. Foods that are burnt generally aren't. A little burnt around the edges or the top can give some foods a taste that Cajuns really like.

We took to social media to find out, in the eyes (mouths) of Acadiana, what foods simply taste better a tiny bit burnt or charred.

The respondents answered everything from bacon to toast. This survey was one of the most popular we've ever conducted. There's one thing that folks here in Acadiana celebrate...food! And we enjoy talking about food, sharing recipes and giving our opinions about what we like to eat (or not eat).

 

Here is a List of the Top 10 Foods that Acadiana Likes a Little Burnt
