There's a cliché that there's no such thing as American food. This list proves that's not true and our food is great.


An Irish newspaper just put together a list of American foods "that we would never eat." Here are 10 of their picks, with their misguided justifications:

  1. Pumpkin pie – "In Ireland, pumpkins are purely for aesthetic use."
  2. Pastrami sandwiches – "Too much [meat] for one sandwich."
  3. Sloppy Joes – "What the hell [is] a Sloppy Joe?"
  4. Spreadable and Spray cheese – "What kind of sandwich requires spreadable cheese over sliced cheese?"
  5. Tater tots – "If they were anything special, we'd have them here by now."
  6. Sno cones – "Ridiculously sweet."
  7. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches – "They would never become a staple in Ireland the way that they have in the U.S."
  8. Deep dish pizza – "Why are the ingredients upside down?"
  9. Kool Aid – "Making a drink from powder adds an annoying step with little pay off."
  10. Root beer – "This tastes exactly like cough medicine."
