    wow…that list is ridiculously familiar…sounds like you read my mind! i studied this past year in england and i can confirm every single point on that list above… i actually had to hold a ‘taco night’ so i could show them what the hell they were. …did you ever try the british version of kraft macaroni & cheese? it’s basically a disgrace…tastes like they made it with british mature chedder. also…i’ve never considered myself a bbq fan in the US, but for some reason in england i found myself frequenting sainsbury’s for bbq pringles and heinz bbq beans…it was frightening and inexplicable…maybe it was my subconscious reaffirmation of my american-ness? Anyways, i’m a fan of your posts…i can definitely relate
