But what in the name of heaven are grits?? They look utterly unappetising, and the descriptions I've read have me imagining a sort of salty porridge.
One day I will go to the States and I will try grits, just to understand WTAF they are.
I'm much more looking forward to trying biscuits and gravy. (Both words we Brits use, but in a completely different way.) That looks much more interesting." — Clare Celea
"Hershey’s horrible powdery chocolate springs to mind. There are many things that we find far too sweet, like Lucky Charms (not easy to find here anyway), and the idea of mixing sweet and savoury things is a bit odd to us.
I’m not sure I can add anything else that isn’t here already, however, I can add a few things that I regular see on TV, that I have no idea what they are. These are personal of course, I may be the only one not to know these: Grits, Twinkies, Half and half, Buttermilk, Yams, Biscuits and gravy (I don’t imagine that this is what you’d get if you asked for this in the UK), Corn dogs, Chilli dogs." — Alan Murray
