Its Valentines Day and that means love, right? Sappy greeting cards. Heart-shaped candy. Professions of undying romance blah, blah, blah.
Lets talk about something that actually matters today: New Jersey people and all the things we love, love, love no matter what day of the year it is. One of the many punchlines thrown our way is that were a joyless bunch who are quicker to hate something than to embrace it as our own. Not true! Well, not always true, anyway. Here are 25 items, behaviors and misfortunes of others we Garden Staters love above all else. Enjoy your price-gauged dinners!
The imported pasta. The dangling logs of salami and capicola. The bread the freaking bread, man.

Jersey tomatoes are the best
The secret is Jersey greensand.
You can buy it at your local Agway.
Put a few spoonfulls under every tomato plant when you transplant them.
You can also use rock dust from your local quarry, either alone or with the greensand.
The plants need the minerals.
The all the way hot dogs, the independent pizzerias where everything on the menu is usually good, the hard rolls, the deli’s.
The Jersey Devil still lives in the Pine Barrens.

And Jason Voorhees lives at Camp No Be Bo Sco in Hardwick Township!
NJ is a great state that is slowly dying by liberalism.

Jersey tomatoes barely exist, except in very small batches.
The Jersey tomato farmer was replaced by the industry’s desire for tomatoes that can be shipped without spoiling, a long shelf life - tasteless tomatoes.
Campbell’s stopped using Jersey tomatoes long ago.
But yes they were so good you could eat a slice on an Italian roll, and it was as good as a steak sandwich.
“Jersey tomatoes barely exist, except in very small batches. The Jersey tomato farmer was replaced by the industrys desire for tomatoes that can be shipped without spoiling, a long shelf life - tasteless tomatoes.”
You can get them in a farmer’s market or better yet, grow your own in a home garden.
Gee, am I missing the best government? They keep voting in the same thing, so I thought that would rank at least in the upper 25. 8>)
Cape May. Wildwood crest.
Pork roll, egg and cheese sandwich on a hard roll.
Two more words: Jimmy Buffs
Well, in South Jersey, we love the back roads and the woods.
Jersey Sucks. No tomato will make up for the crappy rest of the state. Dumbasses voting 100% pensions, incredibly high property taxes, .25 cent add ons to mandate our gas is pumped. To top it off we are shipping these dumbasses to southern states so they can vote this crap down there.
Reminds me of yoot and great times.
LBI, Belmar, Seaside, AC...

I wonder if they ship to Florida ?
