PIZZA- Pizza can only be SO bad, right? The French just don't get the concept. They love thin crust, which is fine by me, but they really screw up the toppings. Goat cheese does not belong on a pizza! Neither does kebab meat. I can't do it!
HOT DOGS- The frenchies don't really eat hot dogs, and I must say, I don't really either. They don't do buns here. Everything they make, they serve on a baguette. I love the bread here, but a hot dog in a hollowed out baguette is just awkward.
ANY AMERICAN BRAND COOKIE/CANDY IS NOT THE SAME.
MEXICAN FOOD- They just plain don't have it. They have a small section of El Paso brand in the supermarkets and they call any attempt at Mexican food "tex-mex", but it just doesn't work out. Caroline didn't even know what a burrito was. I tried to explain by saying "un sandwich tex-mex." She looked at me a nodded, pretending to get it. Could you even imagine what would happen if they really tried though. Burrito Baguettes. Blech. What a sad sad world, without Mexican food!
MEAT- They don't like "well-done".
So as you can see, the list is short and all junk food. One American thing the French do better is Coke. At home I am a Diet Coke addict. Here, I switched to regular because it is SO good.
