Everyone has a summer bucket list, but what everyone should have is a summer food bucket list. A food bucket list consists all of the culinary items and experiences that you and your taste buds deserve to indulge in before the leaves turn and the tan lines fade.
While some of these items are perfectly accessible in Fall, Winter, and Spring, they probably won't be as enjoyable then. Who wants to slurp down a snow cone when it's snowing? Sip fruity cocktails over a crackling fire? Swap out the Thanksgiving turkey for a hot dog platter? You get the point. Certain foods go with certain seasons.
So put down whatever you are eating, and pick up these quintessential summer foods because the clock is ticking and you need to make your meals count. We hope you have an appetite because you simply cannot wait till next summer for these!
Check out the the slideshow above for 20 quintessential summer foods that need to be on your bucket list!
