Cincinnati is synonymous with its chili. Whether you’re passing through Price Hill, Blue Ash, Pleasant Ridge, or Camp Washington, there’s a parlor in practically every corner of town offering its own version of the Greek-inspired hotdog topping. And now it’s easier than ever to track your chili travels with the Cincinnati Chili Passport. The 36-page, pocket-size booklet is made just for your taste-testing escapades. Rate a three-way’s spiciness level at Empress and gauge the size of the oyster crackers served at Chili Time, all while learning the history behind the local diners in the process. With 11 different pit stops to stamp off, will you finally end the age-old who-does-it-better debate? We can’t make any promises; as they say, it’s not about the destination, but rather the journey.

Cincinnati Chili Passport, $16,, or at Handzy Shop + Studio, 15 W. Pike St., Covington
