Snackerball: America's Favorite Snacks Face Off

Northeast: University of Maryland & Boston College

Crab Cakes
vs.
New England Clam Chowder 

There’s something fishy about the Atlantic Coast rivalry between Maryland and Boston, as the almighty Maryland crab cake squares off against the traditional-as-it-gets New England clam chowder. Both dishes are institutions (and just about everybody’s very first go-to order when they step foot into Boston or Baltimore).

The Creole honey-mustard sauce served alongside these extra-crispy crab cakes will turn any crabby frown upside-down. And the chowder has bacon in it (as if chowder wasn’t already all sorts of creamy fabulousness on its own). For this match-up, you get to play the ref with all the power. So, who are you going to blow your whistle for?
