Food I enjoyed in the USA

I tried to eat as much of the food i liked every meal i have been stateside the past week.

In New Zealand, people asked me if there was any food i missed from the USA, but i couldn't really think of it while i wasn't here. But now being back this is what i have eaten and missed.


Taco Bell's Cheesy Gordita Crunch

Kraft MacnCheese

Cinnamon Cheerios (any sugary cereal)

Al8 one (an ale only really sold in Kentucky)

Red Robin- California Chicken Sandwich

Chipotle- Burrito (i had meat even though this picture doesnt)

Bread Sticks, Cheese sauce, and polar pop for 32oz for $.63 (college favorite)

BW3’s- BBQ Buffalo Wings & BBQ Ribs (I love bbq sauce)

Ivanhoes- Ice Cream (a college spot)

American Hot Dog & Cheesy Potato Casserole (church potluck dinner)

Cinnamon Pop tarts

Bargs Root Beer (reminds me of root beer float called a spider in NZ)

Dairy Queen's Reese's Peanut Butter Blizzard

Pimento Cheese Sandwich (from North Carolina southern taste buds)

Jimmy Johns- Beach Sub (love guacamole)

Chic Fila Sandwich and Wedge Fries

If you didn't eat the KFC double down, you fail.

Wow that reads like a gourmet restaurent menu...

Sarah said...

Wow! I'm jealous of all the great food, especially the Chic Fil A :).

Julie said...

Horray for Ivanhoe's with friends!
Have you gotten any comments about their extensive menu that you "borrowed"?

Lynne Howard said...

Man, I looks like all we eat in the USA is junk food!! ha! But that looks delish! I miss Ivanhoe's for sure! And I might need to get your mom's recipe for coffee cake and Jen's cheesy salsa recipe! They are both excellent cooks, and that looks yummy!

As an American living in the Australia, I miss many of the things you posted here. Kraft Mac & Cheese just isn't the same here! :(

I am glad that you guys share my passion for food. Yes i over indulged, but it was well worth it and the exercise to follow!

Wow... I can't believe how ubiquitous junk food is in the USA. Do they ever cook anything, or buy anything that isn't processed, packaged and branded?
