Montana is known for Huckleberries. They are a go-to food for so many
of the residing wildlife...as well as the rest of us living here. 
They have amazing flavor that people absolutely love. 

Wikipidea states, "In taste, the berries range from tart to sweet,
with a flavor similar to that of a blueberry, especially in blue and
purple colored varieties. However, many kinds of huckleberries have
a noticeable tart taste, different from blueberries, and some have
noticeably larger seeds."

According to oxforddictionaries.com, Huckleberry is defined as: 
NOUN - 1. Soft edible blue-black fruit resembling a currant.
      - 2. The low-growing North American plant of the
            heather family which bears the huckleberry.
