Our glorious state is chock-full of fan favorites, ranging from juicy burgers to fleshy avocados. And we don’t know about you, but we often spend hours and hours (OK, maybe not quite that long) pondering which of these magnificent dietary creations represents us most perfectly. If you are in the same boat, we have the perfect quiz for you.

    1. I <3 In-N-Out BurgerThe In-N-Out cheeseburger: You’re a carnivore, and you might not work out quite enough, but who’s counting calories? You love your bigger and feel a surge of Californian pride every time you take a bite out of your Double-Double.
    2. Sofia Gonzalez Platas/StaffThe authentic taco stand carne asada taco: You’re a true Southern California native who constantly complains about how awful Berkeley’s Mexican food is. Your friends stopped even attempting to go to Chipotle with you because they know it will only end in grunts of “not real Mexican” and “this guac sucks.”
