It’s flat-out cold. And snowing.
You must own a Yooper Chook.
Chooks. They started with the French voyageurs who explored the UP as early as the 1600’s. This hardy lot of men wore hats called “touques” (pronounced “tew-ks”). Over the years, Canadians and Yoopers have tweaked both the style and the pronunciation of the touque and made it their own.
A majority of Yoopers grew up with our chooks and never called them anything else.
What sets us apart?
