    We Asked 25 Non-Scots To React To Photos Of Glasgow And This Is What Happened

    Spoiler: Everyone was freaked out by fritter rolls.

    We sent 12 uncaptioned photos of Glasgow to BuzzFeed offices in Mexico, the US, Australia, Brazil, and London and asked them to write down the first thing that came into their heads. Twenty-five people replied. This is what they said:

    1. A Munchy Box

    2. Glasgow Science Centre

    3. Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel

    4. Haggis, neeps, and tatties with oatcakes

    5. The Duke of Wellington statue

    6. Glasgow Botanic Gardens

    7. The Clyde Auditorium (SECC)

    8. A fritter roll

    9. Glasgow Subway

    10. St Enoch subway station (now a Caffe Nero)

    11. Finnieston Crane and the Clyde Arc

    12. Macaroni pie
