American foods I’ve never even heard of/never want to eat…
I still have some foods on my American bucket list. Grits – check (gross); gumbo – check (love); S’mores – check (gross).
Like, I’ve never had a PB&J (Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich). Yes, really.
Nor a Sloppy Joe.
Nor a Burgoo, whatever that is.
And here are some of the more crazy foods that I will avoid – some I’d never heard of until a Buzzfeed list of crazy-ass American foods circulated today on my newsfeed.
“Concoctions: Bacon Smores. Burgers between doughnuts. Fried cereal cheese puffs. I mean, I see half these weird food combinations and it’s just revolting. American food gets such a bad rep and these things explain why. However, I will attest that throughout the U.S. there actually are really amazing homemade and healthy traditional food representing those areas. Not all the U.S. food is a sugar-injected, deep-fried nightmare.” Jac Connolly, Facebook.
I don’t get this one. How is that salad? Just cos it’s green….?
If you have a dill pickle, a glass of Kool-Aid and a want for a sweet and sour, the natural thing to do is to steep said pickle into the electrically-colored sweet Kool-Aid drink. That’s what happened in the Delta region of Mississippi, and it’s how the Kool-Aid pickle came to exist. Such things should never have been invented.
I think I need to have a full on Americana food eating party do get this lot down me before I go…… other suggestions welcome! 🙂
