When Brits complain about the quality of food, you know that you've stepped into a mirror universe, and that Kang and Koloth are about to propose a peace accord and Quark is going to donate weapons and munitions to help the Terrans...

Further down the page, there's a list of the best American foods to make it across the pond. The overlap is amazing.

What the fark is wrong with a Hershey bar, Brits?
 
2014-07-04 10:53:45 AM
That's because Briddish teeth can't handle something as crunchy as a Hershey Bar or a Pop Tart.
 
2014-07-04 10:54:01 AM
So this is one lady's opinion. I fully disregard it.

I was with you unit the Fluff. This means war!

People actually  eat spray cheese?  I thought that stuff was only purchased as a gag gift and/or for sealing up gaps in walls.

Oh yeah, because eels

Rather than "Brits lament..."  I think a more accurate headline would be "A Brit trolls...."

Whoa whoa, pop tarts and corn dogs...? Why don't you just punch my childhood in the face?

Pickelbacks? WTF is a pickelback? IS that even American? I've never heard of one.

The same website also has an article posted today of 8 amazing American imports. 2 of them are the same from the terrible food list.

So the list is:
Pop Tarts
Floats
Spray Cheese
Hybrid Foods
Corn Dogs
Picklebacks
Hershey Bars
Marshmallow Fluff

2 things on that list I'll agree with. But more importantly, we need to know the rest of the details on this article linked at the bottom:

Yeah, Fluff is first on the "hooray!" list and last on the "Booo!" list. Maybe there are only like 17 or 18 American foods available in Britain?

3..the Luther Burger qualifies as hybrid food.

Spray cheese is the single most vile concoction ever created by mankind. No other food, from any culture, is as disgusting as spray cheese. I would rather eat lutefisk.

this is the dorkiest thing you've said on fark EVAR, hubie. And I see you dorking the dork in every food thread. ;-p

I'm not saying that british food is perfect, but the list given is downright nasty. And it's funny to me that Hersheys isn't even allowed to call it's products chocolate over there. HA! That's news to me, but not surprising in the least

This. Its basically the same foods as the worst list

Also, spray cheese is awesome.

Yummy brown waxy sugar bar! If you close your eyes and pretend, its almost like chocolate!

The Krispy Kreme burger was a campaign not a serious food item. I have to stop reading this. My comments aren't entertaining, just evidence that I'm pissed - that's angry not drunk. And you don't make the best cheese, but you are a liar, farkface.

both are similar in taste and texture when washed down with akvavit....

Skåne Akvavit is my favourite for either, as it makes for the best projectile vomit aftertaste.

mongbiohazard: Pickelbacks? WTF is a pickelback? IS that even American? I've never heard of one.


 It's when you go to a bar and eat a lot of pickles and win a free drink . I just learned this on Fark this morning .

If these are looking pretty appealing to you right now then you are either A. in the throws of a serious case of the Dutch munchies or B. seven-years-old.

In the throws.

Because, you're a true American, who would gladly give his or her life to defend against attacks on quality processed foods.

I salute you!

I would totally agree about spray cheese, except it has one amazing use: sprayed on a philly cheesesteak. Apparently a lot of places that do authentic cheesesteaks have the option on the menu, and didn't understand why it until I tried it.

A drink with pickled things in it apparently. You know, like a martini.

jayphat: What the fark is wrong with a Hershey bar, Brits?


Hershey's big invention was creating a process to used spoiled milk to make milk chocolate, which of course is cheaper.   Sadly, Americans have become so used to having chocolate made with spoiled milk, that other manufactures now add acid to give their chocolate that "tangy", spoiled milk flavor.

jayphat: What the fark is wrong with a Hershey bar, Brits?


I was at a camp fire making smores with some people.  One person was discouraged because his "chocolate" won't melt.  I told him, that's because you are using Hershey bars, not chocolate.  Chocolate flavored wax doesn't melt as easy as real chocolate.
 
2014-07-04 11:20:34 AM
You weren't complaining about Hershey Bars when we were kicking Gerry's ass back into the bunker and tossing you a free chocolate while we were doing it you Limey bastage!

Also, don't you ever EVER speak disparagingly of corn dogs in my presence again young lady.  Or I will have to spank you (I know British proclivities you twisted little minx) and do unspeakable things to you with Cheeze Whiz.

Sometimes wonderful things happen when milk "spoils".

And I'm guessing the Brits probably don't jam everything full of high fructose corn syrup over either.

Is that anything like the midnight munchingtons?

I've tried a pickleback before. You simply take a shot of pickle juice to chase a shot of whiskey. It's actually pretty surprising how well the pickle juice nullifies the whiskey's flavor/burn. It's basically for people that don't like whiskey; or people that love pickles.
Once was enough.

There is no dissing the Root Beer Float.  Of course, there's probably never been a day in the UK hot enough to make it worthwhile.

Shouldn't Fried Chicken be on that list? ( or is that something older that we Americans just claimed as our own?)

I might like to see Guy Fieri take over the food supply of an entire country, just to see what happens.

Passive Aggressive Larry: I would totally agree about spray cheese, except it has one amazing use: sprayed on a philly cheesesteak. Apparently a lot of places that do authentic cheesesteaks have the option on the menu, and didn't understand why it until I tried it.


I have never heard of any restaurant using spray cheese, most use cheese spread like Cheese Whiz, it's close to the same, but a little thinner, also it's a lot cheaper as one isn't paying for it to be loaded and shipped in aerosol cans.

I can understand most of the list. Pop tarts, Hershey bars, Easy Cheese, (most) corn dogs, and marshmallow creme are all terribly proceeded products. But I'll be damned if there is anything wrong with a float, and if you can't figure out how to consume one your a freaking moron.
