What Foods Do You Think Are Truly "American"?

There's gotta be something true to our tastebuds!!!

Posted on

America is one giant melting pot, there is no doubt about that. Foods from all over the world have helped shape each nook and cranny of our dear country, and we are ever so grateful for that!

However, some people don't know what is true American food. What started here in the states? What are some foods that America can be proud to take ownership of?

America has the habit of claiming things that don't belong to them by sticking tiny flags into the tops of buns like little umbrellas in a tropical drink. NEWS FLASH: Hamburgers are German. Apple Pie is English! Ketchup is Chinese!! Doughnuts are Dutch!!! WHAT EVEN IS THIS LIFE?!

So, let's get to the bottom of this, shall we? What originated in the USA? Post in the comments what you know for a fact are true red, white, and blue bleeding, bald eagle soaring, and college football tailgating American cuisine!
