Re: American Bacon is Delicious!
While we're at it you can keep your ghastly Hershey's to yourself
Ahhh, Hersheys. As a lad brought up reading Marvel comics where we used to get all the american adverts, I grew up with a desire to eat Hershey bars and twinkies (Also get x-ray specs for some reason ). So on my 1st trip to the colonies, I headed to the local Walmart and bought a big bag to bring home to the family.
I could not believe how bad they tasted. They had the consistency and aftertaste of something produced in a industrial plant rather than something organic. It was so bad that even my children who normally hoover up anything related to chocolate (advent calendar chocies, I'm looking at you ) would not touch it. Which just goes to show you can sell anything if your advertising budget is big enough and you wrap the American flag around it(which also explains Ford/GM).
Saying that I have had some great food in the states, but also the worse lasagna I have ever tasted (A note to the residents of Albany, please use beef mince next time). Now I know it's a bit pot/kettle complaining about another countries food, but at the top end American food is better as good as any, but below that it is mass produced crap with little taste and dubious ingredients
