What is Georgia best at?

There's a lot of shade thrown the south's way, but there are a lot of things for our region to be proud of, too. Thrillist recently broke down what each U.S. state is best at, and while Georgia's title as "top peanut producer" might not be the sexiest, we'll take that over Wyoming's bragging rights for "lowest rates of syphilis" any day of the week.

We do, however, take issue with South Carolina's title of "most polite" -- Georgians have great manners, please and thank you!

Take a look at the map below and let us know if you think Georgia should be known for anything other than its nuts.
