?27 Reasons Why American Food Is The Most Underrated In The World

When you think of your favorite country for food, you probably think of takeaway mainstays like Mexican or Thai. As a native of the U.S. of A., I urge you to reconsider. American food deserves way more credit than it gets. Here’s why.

1. Some people just love to hate on American food

2. It’s “unhealthy”

3. Compared to rich cultural cuisines like Italian or Chinese, it’s boring

4. It’s “frightening”

5. Well, those people are wrong

6. Much like America itself, American food is THE BEST!

7. Yes, our food is packed with preservatives and chemicals that are illegal basically everywhere else on earth

8. But have you ever eaten those chemicals?!

9. Your passport will expire before these bad boys, but that just means the two dollars you spend on Twinkies today will provide sweet satisfaction for years – even decades – to come

10. If you like your food slightly less processed but still not quite good for you, try the South

11. Three words. Chicken. And. Waffles.

12. Of course, our health food game is on point, too. Just ask our Kale Kween

13. Have you heard of our horribly overpriced health food grocery chain Whole Foods?

14. Because it’s only heaven on earth

15. Much like our casual dining chains, which are God’s gift to restaurants

16. Unlimited soup, salad, and breadsticks? Classy vineyard-themed décor and an ever-changing menu of reasonably priced Italian classics? 800 locations across the United States? Welcome to Olive Garden, the greatest casual dining restaurant in the land

17. Why am I talking about an Italian restaurant in a post about American food, you ask? Because of the great American melting pot, of course!

18. Seriously, with the exception of like 2% of the population, everyone came to America from somewhere else

19. So our international foods are top-notch, too

20. Mostly

21. At the end of the day, though, you can’t beat the American classics

22. Hot dogs

23. French fries

24. Mac and cheese

25. Burgers

26. Good old American apple pie

27. Put some butter on it, y’all. American food rocks
