Do Coca-Cola and peanuts cut it?

Yesterday, the AJC’s Greg Bluestein reported that Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker placed a wager featuring some of each state’s top products in advance of this Sunday’s NFC Championship game.

If Green Bay wins, Deal is offering up a bottle of Coca Cola, chili dogs from The Varsity, peach pies from Dickey Farms, Georgia peanuts and two six-packs of Creature Comforts’ Tropicalia, while Wisconsin will be on the hook for Leinenkugel’s Wisconsin Red Pale Ale, a box of chocolates from Seroogy’s Chocolates in De Pere, jars of honey from Wisconsin Natural Acres, assorted Wisconsin artisan cheeses, crackers and sausage and a pair of Travel Wisconsin Old Fashioned glasses.

This begs the question — is this the best of what Georgia has to offer? They’re good picks, no doubt — iconic food and drink items that are representative of some of the state’s favorites. But are there items missing? If you were making the wager, which foods or drinks would you include? Check all that apply from the list below, or write in your own answer (need inspiration?
