RaceDTruck: Haggis does not belong on this list.
insertsnarkyusername: Jaden Smith First of His Name: Dunno what laverbread is but it looks like it'd be good on buttered toast.Laverbread is basically a seaweed paste. It's super nutritious and free so you ate it to supplement your diet in the winter or when you couldn't afford anything else. This is one of those foods that are kind of gross tasting but kept people alive.
Mister Peejay: leonel: My theory about why the British created the largest empire in history stems from their cuisine. The Spanish and French empires never really reached their potential because they have delicious food at home thus no real incentive to go overseas and when they did, they were real jerks to the locals since the locals didn't have food that (they felt) couldn't compare to home. The British, with their awful food, had a higher incentive to go out into the world to find better food to bring back. They were also nicer to the locals compared to the French and Spanish so they could keep eating the exotic food for longer, teaching them how to administrate their own countries so they can take time off of imperialism-ing to chow down on some matar paneer, dim sum or falafel.I've long suspected this myself. "We liked the food so much, we took over the country."North America, for instance, had... corn. And turkeys. And lobster, which was considered such a poor man's food that there were laws against feeding it to your servants more than three times per week. So screw those guys, that food's crap. They want independence? Yeah, sure, get outta here.Australia had... what does Australia have natively besides everything being scary and poisonous?

Jaden Smith First of His Name: Haggis is fine. Marmite's fine. Human breast milk is pretty tasty, so the ice cream is probably good. Black pudding is good.Dunno what laverbread is but it looks like it'd be good on buttered toast.
