Not gonna lie, sweet potato casserole is delicious, but the concept of combining any vegetable with a melted candy is just very weird.

Lunch breaks are the best, because 1) you get to take a break, 2) said break involves food. So why don't Americans take them??

8. Drinking milk with dinner.

Caramel frappuccino, peppermint mocha, gingerbread latte, pumpkin spice latte... What is wrong with just coffee?

At first, I wondered what kind of monster decided to pair these together. But then I tried it, and now I wonder what kind of genius decided to pair these together. But it's still WEIRD, OK?!

16. Three-liter wine bottles.

hahaha more wine, 2 three liter bottles and 1 six liter bottle #WineFreaks

You gotta admire the thirst and the dedication but Americans' love of big portions is a tad weird.
