Do u drink sweet tea at all? (I live in TN and have only been up north once with hubs in his mac truck.) We go threw about a gallon a day. And it's what we primarily drink. Do you do pig pickins? Boiled peanuts? Etc?

This a a pig pickin u like cook a pig on a grill till the meat gets tender and then u pick it out the pig.

I love sweet tea but I don't drink a lot if it. The sugar content is terrible. The rest I have never heard of.

No, we just drink water in our house. My husband has tea when we go to dinner sometimes.

 I'm from California and if I drink sweet tea it's Brisk or from McDonalds. My family can go through a gallon of sun tea in a week though. I am not sure I know what pig pickins is. And as for boiled peanuts, sorry. I like honey roasted peanuts.

Boiled peanuts! Oh they are so good. As far as a pig pickin it where u cut open a pig and cook it on a giant grill and when it's done it will be tender like a roast and u just pick it out the pig. It soon Okolona delish. We do it every thanksgiving.

Yes but we call it Sun tea. I also like it better unsweetened.

I'm from upstate NY and I love sweet tea but it's usually from McDonalds or like Arizona or brisk brand. As for boiled peanuts and pig picking, never had them. Although I love the candied peanuts and almonds and what not they have at the festivals around here.

I'm in Maryland - by no means north nor south.  Generally speaking, iced tea is unsweetened here, unless you go to McDonalds.
