Humans are a creative species by nature. We enjoy creating to tools and inventions that make our lives easier and more enjoyable. Honestly, where would we be without them? Today we’re going to take a look at the best (or at least my personal favorite) inventions to come out of Minnesota.

  1. The Snow Blower

This one should come as no surprise. I don’t anyone needs Snow Blowers as much as we do. Pretty handy to have around during our infamous 7 month winters.

  1. Twister

That’s right. Everyone’s favorite awkward drunken party game came straight out of the land of 10,000 lakes. I guess that’s cool? But also kind of weird… I can live with it.

  1. Milky Way Candy Bar

Okay, if I’m being honest, this is probably my favorite on this list. I absolutely LOVE Milky Ways. It is perhaps my favorite candy bar. It makes me proud to be a Minnesotan.

  1. Pop-Up Toaster

There’s no better way to kick your day off than with a fresh, steamy Pop Tart straight out of the toaster. That simply wouldn’t be possible without the Pop-Up Toaster. Good job Minnesota.

  1. Microwavable Popcorn

Where would our country be without a bowl of microwavable popcorn and a good movie to bring our families together? Nowhere – that’s where. I wouldn’t want to image a world without Orville Redenbacher popcorn.
