9 AMERICAN FOODS THAT THE REST OF THE WORLD CAN’T STAND

Canned Cheese: Despite its bewildering nature, canned cheese remains a convenient and nostalgic snack for some Americans.

Grits: A Southern staple, grits can be polarizing due to their texture and blandness, often leaving foreigners puzzled.

Root Beer: Beloved in the U.S., root beer's unique flavor profile can be perplexing to international taste buds, some likening it to cough medicine.

Peanut Butter And Jelly Sandwiches: The iconic PB&J sandwich is a strange mix of sweet and salty flavors, a childhood favorite in America but considered unusual by many visitors.

Twinkies: Golden sponge cakes with a creamy filling, Twinkies have been a U.S. favorite for decades, though the rest of the world remains skeptical due to preservatives and a long shelf life.

Corn Dogs: A hot dog on a stick coated in cornmeal batter and deep-fried, the concept of corn dogs may seem excessive to those outside the U.S.

Biscuits And Gravy: A quintessential Southern breakfast, biscuits and gravy involve smothering fluffy biscuits in a thick, meaty gravy, puzzling to foreigners.

Pop-Tarts: Toaster pastries filled with sweet fillings, Pop-Tarts are a popular breakfast choice in the U.S., dissuading international visitors with their ultra-sugary contents and artificial flavors.

American “Chocolate”: American chocolate is known for being overly sweet and waxy compared to European counterparts, lacking the rich, smooth flavor expected by many outside the United States.
