Default American Food

There have been posts by people saying what British food they miss and I was just wondering are there any American foods that you can't get in the UK that you would miss if you went back to live in Britain?

Mexican. Only real native American food there is.


On a whole American food is crap, crap, crap, with a handful of exceptions.

But most of the exceptions are derived from other countries foods.

List some good foods that don't have high fructose corn syrup in and I'll maybe think about putting that on the list as well.

When I'm back in the UK the only food I miss is Key Lime Pie flavoured yogurts.

You're all liars who smuggle Pop Tarts in your suitcases when you go back home for visits because you couldn't stand a morning without them.

My older daughter's then boyfriend came over for a visit with us, he came back with Kudo bars and fed them to his family and then they were begging for them forever.... I personally think they're horrible things. <insert JG's vomit smiley>

Wild Maine blueberries

Cold water Maine shrimp

Maine Lobster

Fresh, proper maple syrup

Annies MacCheese probably, well it's a quick easy snack and the baby loves it

Nasty, but I love bloomin' onions every now and again and I'd probably miss that

The home fries from the local diner are awesome
