That is some hard-hitting journalism.

Is this the entire article?  People who have never eaten a food saying that it's probably disgusting/nasty?

I'm currently dipping pickle + marshmallow sweet potato stuffed meatloaf with a PB&J glaze into tomato soup as I eat it, so I'm getting a kick.
 
2021-11-30 11:22:45 AM  
Canuck here.

Grilled cheese & tomato soup: Love it.  Nothing wrong with that.  Get some pepper, parsley, and some green Tabasco or habanero hot sauce in that soup and it's extra-special.

Buttered popcorn: Wait, there are people who don't like this?  Who are these strange and frightening people?

PB&J: Yes, but with a qualifier: Jam, not jelly.  Strawberry jam, to be specific.  Alternatively, honey or banana instead of jam.  All are delicious.

Pineapple pizza: Damn right.  The combination of sweet, tangy, savoury, and umami is an excellent combination.

Wings: See my entry for buttered popcorn.  Philistines!

Bacon: This is cheating a bit; the complaint is specifically about eating with your fingers.  And yes.  Yes, I do.

Bread with pasta: I don't usually, not because I don't like it, but because it's double carbs, and just a bit much for me.

Olive Garden: Pasta is mediocre at best.  The salad and breadsticks are really why anyone goes.

Marshmallows on sweet potatoes: I don't like sweet potato pie, so the rest is academic.

Macaroni and Cheese: Why the hell not?  The Italians have their versions of mac 'n cheese.  Cacio e pepe anyone?  Alfredo sauce?  Pasta is great with a cheese sauce.  I've made my own cheddar cheese sauce for mac 'n cheese and it's great.

Meatloaf: Okay, I don't like ketchup on it, but you can do variations of meatloaf. I mean, it's ground beef.  In a loaf. With onions and spices.  What's not to like?

Snack pickles: Sure.  I'll eat a nice dill once in a while.  Why not?

Corn dogs: I don't love them, but they're okay.  Depends on the quality of the sausage within.

Apples with peanut butter: Not much of a fan myself, but it's a thing.  Granny Smith apples with a little sprinkling of salt though is wonderful.

Chicken 'n waffles: That's an American thing.  I've never had it but I wouldn't turn it down.  Sounds pretty good as long as the waffles aren't too sweet.

Cereal as a meal: Oh, come on.  That's practically bachelor chow and we've all done it.

Peanut butter on a spoon: Again, we've all done this.  Don't deny it.

Ketchup and eggs: Not usually with fried eggs unless they're on toast.  Scrambled or in omelette form (assuming a plain omelette or a western), sure.  It's good.

Chips on sandwiches: Okay, this one, no.  Not my thing at all.  Doesn't sound nasty, but I just don't like really crunchy things on my sandwiches.  Lettuce is as far as I go.

Ranch dressing: See: popcorn, bacon.  and Cool Ranch Doritos are best Doritos.

Chili as a meal: Um ... isn't it supposed to be?   When I make a big ol' mess of slow-cooked chili, that's a bunch of meals right there.  Buttered bread on the side, lunch and dinners sorted.

Pasta with butter: It was the Italian way for a long time.  Historically it was believed throughout much of Europe that red fruits and vegetables were poisonous (going by the "colour as nature's warning" school of thought) so tomatoes were out of the question.  Thus, butter and creams and cheeses were the order of the day with pasta.  Once it was realized that tomatoes were fine, and even better, delicious, red sauces started becoming common.  But recipes with butter (and usually pepper or some other seasoning) still persist.  Also, adding a knob of butter to a red sauce adds a nice bit of smooth unctuousness.

Sloppy Joes: Had them last night.   Having leftovers for lunch today.

Pop Tarts: Meh.  They're empty calories and not really my thing any more, but I liked them as a kid.

Nacho cheese sauce: Okay, now you're just having me on.  It's queso.  Who doesn't love queso?  Philistines, that's who!

Bacon with pancakes: Why not?  Pancakes, waffles, eggs, it's fine.  People have sausages with pancakes, why is this any different?

Apple sauce as a snack: It's fine.  It's mashed apples with some sugar and cinnamon.  Basically an apple pie without the pie.

Potatoes for breakfast: Hash browns?  Home fries?  What's wrong with that?

Burgers with milkshakes: I mean, it's like burgers with any drinks.  It's not like you're dunking the burger in it or shoving both in your mouth at the same time, so what's the problem?

Chinese food out of the container: Now you're just being elitist.  I mean, we don't have those Chinese takeout boxes you see in movies over here, they're usually served in large portions in aluminium or plastic containers you serve out of, not eat out of, but hey, if you want to and you're not sharing, go ahead.  It's a container.  It holds food.  If you want to eat out of that container, what's the problem?

Glazed donuts for breakfast: I don't actually like glazed donuts.  Too sweet.

Cold pizza: It's a thing.  I can't do it, but some people like it.  I don't understand the appeal, but whatever.  I'm not gonna judge.

@_helloduckling
why do americans eat tomato soup with their grilled cheese? that shiat's gross. it's basically just warmed up ketchup.


Well, at least we know that "hannah banana" just doesn't know anyone who can cook. Tomato soup is awesome, and super easy to make, but don't eat that Campbell's garbage.

And butter on popcorn is an issue?
As for the PB&J, I think it's also worth noting that the moron can't compose a sentence correctly. Just because it's social media, it doesn't mean that questions don't still end with question marks.

And it gets better... "WTF is mac and cheese?" Really? Jesus farking Christ, foreigners arer goddamned stupid. It's right there in the name: Macaroni and cheese. It's like any other pasta dish with cheese included. How farking hard is this shiat to figure out.

And meatloaf isn't any different than a hamburger. It's just ground beef. Once again, not a mystery.

Pickles as a "snack"? Does this person sit down to a meal of pickles on a regular basis, or something?

With half of this shiat, if these dumb farks would eat it, then they wouldn't be so confused. I mean, what's so hard to understand about a corn dog if you are already familiar with hot dogs? And apples w/peanut butter. If it's thast mysterious, buy an apple for 50 cents and farking add some peanut butter.

I mean, BuzzFeed is pretty close to the bottom of the barrel, but subby, you have found the BuzzFeed list where they excavated underneath the barrel and have no plans to quit digging any time soon. Congrats, I guess?

2021-11-30 12:02:01 PM  
A bunch of this stuff is kind of nuanced and isn't a like/dislike thing, but little probes about specifics:

Wings: "why eat the boniest part?" It's cheap and it's just a vehicle for sauce.  Kind of like pasta.  Also, what else would you do with the cheapest cuts, toss them?

Meatloaf: It's just meat cooked in a loaf shape.  It's not that weird unless you're strictly vegan or something.  See also: hamburgers, meatballs, gyros, and meat pies

Pickles as a snack: This one I always thought was weird.  Not that grabbing a bite of pickle is odd, a bite of damn near anything is a "snack" if that's what you have handy.  The fact that it's popular enough to warrant most gas stations having individually wrapped extremely large pickles as an option is weird to me.

Corn dogs: They're hot dogs with baked-on buns.  It's not mind blowing.

Peanut butter on a spoon: This isn't really a snack so much as something I'll do if I need a bite of something.  So if I'm about to go to dinner where there's going to be a wait and I'm already hungry I'll grab a spoon of peanut butter.

Chips & sandwiches: English English or American English chips?  The poster said "with" not "on" so I think they're thinking of a sandwich with fries/chips on the side.  Is that just too many carbs?

Nah, most other places have sweeter sweets than the US.  What we do is make not-sweet things sweet as hell.  Like white bread or marinara sauce.
 
2021-11-30 12:16:17 PM  
I don't understand the whole serving pasta with bread myself. If you need bread to sop up the sauce, the sauce sucks.

Though my tastes usually run snobby, the only way to enjoy a grilled cheese sandwich with tomato is a sandwich made with Kraft singles with a side of one fan Campbell's tomato soup cooked with equal parts heavy cream.

A good medium rare burger with a bourbon vanilla milkshake is goddamned heavenly.

I actually agree with many of the opinions put forth in the article. Mostly because the items are children's food like apples and peanut butter or normally prepared very poorly like meatloaf.

Ragin' Asian: Though my tastes usually run snobby, the only way to enjoy a grilled cheese sandwich with tomato is a sandwich made with Kraft singles with a side of one fan Campbell's tomato soup cooked with equal parts heavy cream.


I find this way too heavy.  I'll usually use 4/5ths of a can of 1% milk and top it off with 10% cream.  (I know, why not just buy whole milk?  Because we don't use whole milk.  The 1% milk is for cereal and whatever else calls for milk, and the 10% cream is for coffee.  If I need a heavier milk I'll just combine the two in some ratio to make what I need.  I also occasionally have 18% around, but that's strictly for making my Alfredo sauce, because I make a lighter version than most recipes I see that call for heavy (36%/whipping) cream, and my version comes out just as good, but with 25% less chance of a coronary event!)
 
2021-11-30 12:39:55 PM  
I'm kind of curious how the "they eat bacon with their fingers?!?" person eats their bacon. I can't imagine using a knife and fork for that but maybe people do?

The mac & cheese confusion... I can understand being confused by Canadians calling it "KD" and not knowing what that is. But macaroni and cheese? It's macaroni and cheese, the entire thing is explained by the name of the thing.

Also curious about the butter on popcorn person. What do they put on their popcorn?

Pickles are absolutely a snack.

Peanut butter from the jar isn't really an intended snack, at least not for me. It's more of an "I am desperately in need of food right this instant" thing. It's very quick protein. Except if there's chocolate chips involved, that's an intentional snack. (spoon in the peanut butter, spoon into chocolate chip bag, spoon into mouth)

Oh, and pineapple goes on pizza. Sometimes it is cold pizza.

My wife got my daughter a subscription to Universal Yums, which sends you a box once a month with snacks from around the world.  Usually a single country, though this month is a region (Scandinavia).  Most of it is fairly pedestrian, but some of the things non-Americans eat are equally as strange, and in some cases downright awful.

Mastic candy from Turkey?  Dear sweet zombie Jesus, it was bad.  All three of us spit it out as soon as we got it into our mouths.  Almost as bad were the mint and lamb flavored potato chips from Wales.

Most of that list I can get down with except: Do you like the Olive Garden? fark no.

Most chain places range from mehhh that's ok to shiatty in the US, but that is king shiatty. I use to get dragged there as a kid by my grandparents (lived through the depression, they loved cheap limitless food). I had to send stuff back more than once. I can't think of sending anything else back as a kid except olive garden food. I guess the microwave would often jam in that "restaurant".

Before Americans start raging out, when the headline says "Non-Americans" what it means is "this one tweet we dug up".

Also it's bullshiat. It lists things like tomato soup, chicken wings, and Hawaiian pizza as alien to non-Americans. I can assure you we have those things too.
farking ribs?! That's a tweeter who came from a rich family and never had a cut of meat which didn't cost less than €10. They aren't representative of 7 billion other people.. I stopped reading at point as it was obviously rubbish.

just throwing this out there, but putting good quality olive oil on popcorn is very delicious.

And if you're eating peanut butter with a spoon, it's best to dip that spoon into a small bit of chocolate chips (specifically Guittard.  Why? They taste better than Ghiradelli in this application). WARNING: Getting the peanut butter/choc chip ratio correct is difficult; this may require more than a single spoonful to get it right.

And I tried the "chips/crisps on a sandwich" thing when I was in first or second grade.  While it's better than putting french fries in the burger, it's not all that great and I discontinued the practice.

what's interesting is that places that serve burgers usually also serve shakes.  But how often does one consume both things at the same time? I'd venture, very infrequently.  I don't usually want both at the exact same time.  Perhaps one, then the other, but not at the same time.

So once again, correlation does not imply causality.

What makes this "article" even more of an abomination is that it's also a survey. The brain trust at BuzzFeed are compiling data so they can publish yet another hard hitting piece using the info they gathered.

I won't respond to the entire list, as it is mostly nonsense, but the Olive Garden thing is particularly annoying. It's not like most Americans hold OG to some high level of esteem; it's good enough food if you're in a pinch and don't want burgers and fries. I've only been twice, but it was ok.

Someone up thread mentioned Golden Coral. Years ago I worked for a small company owned by an old man and woman who loved Golden Coral. They would hold mandatory meetings at Golden Coral; they paid for our time and food, but it was rough. They would get quite annoyed if the employees didn't eat what they considered to be enough food, so I would put small quantities of things like chicken wings and salad on my plate and go to the buffet a few times to make it look like I was eating more than I really was. Crazy company run my crazy old people with zero taste in good food.

I don't like tomato soup and I would never eat peanut butter out of the jar.

Chips on a sandwich? Maybe, if I was feeling silly.

Now I want meatloaf.

I noped out about halfway through. I mean ... I agreed with a few, but most were very lame "why do people eat this?" comments from people who hadn't actually eaten the food in question.

Try it first, then comment on how disgusting it is. Chicken wings aren't disgusting, they're just overrated. Butter on popcorn isn't gross, it's just unnecessary. PB&J sammiches are ... whatever. They're a thing. Try them. Or not. But nobody cares either way.

Now I will say, there are foods (like haggis) I've never tried that I find visually unappealing, but then I'm not expecting people to scroll through a list of the foods I've never tried but that look disgusting to me.

No offense, but Canucks really don't count as non-americans when it comes to food.  Other than poutine, bags in milk (which apparently only part of your country that does this) and ketchup flavored chips, and maybe a few other items, Canadian food, and American food are the same.
 
2021-11-30 3:36:42 PM  
Non- Americans?   Most of those foods come from or are inspired by other countries.  Any of those sources might find some or many of the other items disgusting.

Perhaps some other regional favorites might illustrate
Germany: currywurst
Scotland : fried Mars bars (haggis isn't common like these are)
Greece/Japan: octopus/squid
Greece in particular: lamb innards on a stick (less common these days as well)
Inuit: whale
China: just about anything from a "wet market"
Korea: dog meat.
France: horse meat, Andouillette
UK/Japan  Eel

Anyone of these might be good and it may disgust others.

I mean, it's full of vinegar, so it isn't likely bacteria is going to survive in there, so apart from other things on your filthy hands it's probably not terrible.  But it wouldn't surprise me if that was the case.  Remember penny or 5c candies?  Licorice whips, laces, pipes?  Just left open and loose in their boxes on the shelves for any kid to lay snotty hands to, but we were fine with that.

Well... on the bright side vinegar is a disinfectant.  In my memory there were always tongs, but I only tried it once or twice for the sake of trying it so maybe I just only bothered with the place that had tongs.

/Had my first PB sandwich a few months ago, at 35. Pretty good, I can see why they're popular.


many moons ago i had a welsh boss at the wine tasting room. she was in her 60s and had been the states about 10 years, married a 'murican (and he owned the winery). she was utterly revolted by PB&J sandwiches, but she had a plain toasted bagel topped with crunchy PB and sliced banana like 3 times a week for lunch. and she LOVED jam on toast with butter. it was just that PB AND J was way too sweet.

i totally agree with her.

i'll eat everything else on that list except olive garden, poptarts (but dug them as a kid) and ketchup on eggs. i pretty much ONLY like ketchup on a burger, with mayo, NO mustard. i also use ketchup mixed with hot horseradish to make cocktail sauce.

want to be SUPER grossed out? my little sister and mom can't eat boxed mac n' cheese without ketchup. meh -that's pretty 'murican. here's the gross part: when my sis was in college, some drunk night at her sorority house she ended up chowing on boxed mac n' cheese, the obligatory ketchup, AND some applesauce in the same bowl.

after that she ALWAYS puts a scoop of applesauce on her boxed mac n' cheese. and she converted like half of her sorority sisters to do the same. they're all 35-40 now and have passed this "delicacy" on to their own children. BARF!

olrasputin: Subtonic: I cannot put into words how utterly lazy this 'article' was. I am going to punch a baby now.

You should try his/her okra baby food while you're at it.


well yeah, baby-punching is the proper time-honored tradition to steal their sweet, sweet food.

That's what I was waiting for!


Yesterday I saw someone eating M&M's with a spoon.

I've never seen anyone in real life eat straight out of a Chinese food container.  I don't know why people in movies do that.  Especially if you order for a group. Chinese food comes family style, so you're just chowing down on everyone's fried rice.

Psychopusher: Canuck here.

PB&J: Yes, but with a qualifier: Jam, not jelly.  Strawberry jam, to be specific.  Alternatively, honey or banana instead of jam.  All are delicious.


No mention of peanut butter and maple syrup?

Am I the only one who finds it weird that most of these "non-Americans" had American speech patterns? Unless schools outside the US are using Jersey Shore to teach English, I'm thinking this entire article is fake.

I have never heard of this -- and I'm Canadian, where 80% of the world's maple syrup comes from.  I am not necessarily saying this sounds bad, but I'm trying to imagine it and ... I can't quite make the flavour combination work in my head.  It's probably something I'd have to try before I could wrap my head around it and figure out of it works.  I'm not averse to the idea, just slightly skeptical.
