You uncultured heathen. Frito pie is a bed of fritos topped with chili, cheese, onions and other optionals like jalapeños, lettuce and tomato.

Are other countries really not up to speed on peanut butter at this point? Savages.

Also, How do they list CHEESE? It's a fucking European staple! It's been around for like 5,000 years...
Most of Asia doesn't have it at all. Or much dairy for that matter.

I have always wondered why there's nothing really cheesy in Asian cuisine.

Most americans aren't yet down with mayo on fries; that's mostly a dutch thing. (I personally like it.)

Yeah I have a feeling the article (or blog or whatever they're called) was written to be inflammatory.


Totally agree with the limeys about the soft bread. I'd almost rather eat it stale.

Try drinking cows milk in front of the Japanese. They will explode in disgust. These same people that eat cow assholes stuffed with fish guts think the idea of drinking a big class of cold milk is by far the grossest thing a person can do.

Frito Pie - like a muthafuka with the chili, cheese and onions!
Grits - Don't like em very much.
Croissant or baguette over bacon and eggs??? Fucking frogs.

I can say with all honesty, English food is the worst. I hate that shit.

I can't remember if I ever tried grits, but I always wanted to. I had polenta a few times and thought it was great, might be getting them confused.

A lot of North American food I could take or leave. That wacky southern shit is pretty awful. Frito Pie is a dead ringer for Taco Salad. Nacho chips instead of fucking Fritos for one thing. Grits, fucking Grits. OATMEAL MOTHER FUCKER! The worst thing I ever heard of that's wholly American (Southern at that) is Chick Crackle. Deep Fried Chicken Skin. Blech.

I can eat almost any food. Just depends if my lower intestine is willing to pay the price in 20 minutes after finishing.

First of all, Mayo is not american. It is European. Secondly, most asians don't get the whole dairy/cheese thing because they are lactose intolerant due to being weened off early in childhood.


Chick cracklin, sounds like a lazy way of making regular cracklin which is fucking awesome. One of the best I ever had was duck.

Grits are good when cooked up nice, mixed in with some over easy eggs, plenty of black pepper & butter. Yum!

I don't trust a person that doesn't like mayo. No sammich is complete without it.

Yep most of continental Europe puts mayo on their fries...
