18 American Foods That We Need To Get In The UK

We demand pizza rolls.

3. Midnight Mint mocha Frappuccinos

Not only did we miss out on Unicorn Frappuccinos, now we also have to be jealous of this minty, chocolaty one.

4. Buttered popcorn at the cinema

Hopefully this will one day become a cinema staple, but it certainly hasn't just yet.

5. Olive Garden breadsticks

If, like me, you were confused when Americans talked about breadsticks because you thought they meant the slim, crunchy things we have in the UK, you'll be surprised to know what they're actually referring to is far more impressive.

6. Cheesecakes from the Cheesecake Factory

They have over 30 cheesecakes, including chocolate chip cookie and tiramisu flavours, and who knows what other kinds of delicious cheesecake varieties we're missing out on?

7. Mac n' Cheetos from Burger King

It's macaroni cheese covered in Cheetos, so, like, a lot of cheese.


8. Pizza rolls

I mean sure, you could make them if you really wanted, but why aren't these readily available in supermarkets yet?

12. Baconator fries from Wendy's

In the UK we've pretty much nailed putting lots of toppings on chips, but these french fries with cheese and bacon look so good.


13. Ding Dongs

Chocolate cakes are amazing as it is, but these chocolate cakes with a cream filling are even better – and would probably be nice with a cup of tea.

14. Cinnamon Bun Oreos

Cinnamon buns are delicious as it is, but combined with Oreos they sound so damn good that you might have to find an American lover willing to bring them to the UK for you.

15. La Croix

Mostly out of curiosity and also because regular ol' sparkling water is pretty divisive, so some choices would be nice. Is it really a hipster drink? Which flavour is the best? We will never know because it's hard, if not impossible, to get hold of here.

16. Snow cones

How have we not caught on to this simple enough combination of shaved ice and syrup?

17. IHOP pancakes

Sure, you can get American pancakes here, but finding an ENTIRE restaurant dedicated to them isn't easy.

18. Girl Scout cookies

OK, so we don't have Girl Scouts so the chances of us getting these is slim. But every variety sounds great, so we can only hope. Especially the samoas: biscuits with caramel, coconut, and chocolate.
