On Tuesday, a Reddit thread asked, "People not from the USA, what 'American' food are you most interested in trying?" Here are some of best submissions:
1. Deep-fried Oreos, Snickers, funnel cakes, and basically anything you'd find at a carnival.
2. Crawfish boils.
"Not that my country doesn't have crawfish, but we don't have those crawfish boils. Those look like a lot of fun."
"We've all seen them on TV, or in movies, but I'm still not sure I know what one even is."
4. Good old-fashioned American cheeseburgers.
5. Philly cheesesteaks.
"As in 'biscuits in gravy.' We have nothing in comparison in the UK."
7. New York- and Chicago-style pizza.
8. Sweet potato and pumpkin pie.
"The stores only sell pumpkins around Halloween, and canned pumpkin is only imported from the US, and hence, expensive."
"As a Canadian, I hear about po'boys. Some sort of sandwich from the South, I definitely would like to give it a try some day."
11. Lobster rolls.
"Here in Australia, those motherfuckers are expensive, so putting it on a white bread roll is kind of a waste."
12. Sloppy Joes.
"Cartoons and movies made it look really tasty."
13. Texas barbecue.
14. Tomahawk steaks.
"I grew up in Korea and moved to the US when I was 13. We didn't eat a lot of meat in Korea but reading cartoons and whatnot, I always saw Americans eating giant steaks with a bone at the end. It's called cowboy steak or a tomahawk cut. At the earliest opportunity, I'm going to make one and eat it. I won't need any knife or fork either. I'll grab it by the bone and eat it just like in the cartoon."
"What in the world are grits? As a Canadian, I always thought that 'grits' were the leftovers you have after eating at a restaurant. Apparently, I'm wrong."
17. Oh, and a homemade, complete Thanksgiving dinner.
"I've been to the States around that time and ate a Thanksgiving dinner, but it was a catering company serving food to over 1,000 people. While it was not terrible, it was mostly bland and made of pre-prepared food. But it made me want to try a homemade one with roasted and stuffed turkey, gravy, real cranberry sauce, and that weird sweet potato with marshmallow thing."
