“This is Us” Star Chrissy Metz Shares the Things She Misses Most About the South, Including Publix and TCBY


No matter where you grew up, there are certain things that will always remind you of your childhood. If you grew up in the south, you (arguably) had the best childhood ever– and “This Is Us” star Chrissy Metz (AKA Kate Pearson) is here to attest to that.

Chrissy, a Florida native, recently visited with Southern Living about the things she misses most from the south and now we love her even more. From squash casserole to riding her bike to TCBY to shopping at Publix. You know, the good stuff.

“There’s something really different about growing up in the south and unless you’ve experienced it, you don’t really understand,” she said. True!

Chrissy’s new book, “This is Me,” is available now.
