Asian Oranage Chicken with Green Onions for Dinner

When you travel to a different country, are there some foods that you get hooked on and when you come back home, you just have a craving for it? And of course the worst part is since you’re back home, you can’t get it! Well, a list of American foods foreigners miss after leaving the U.S. came out and you might be a bit surprised.

There’s actually a thread online where tourists are talking about American foods, desserts and drinks they REALLY crave when they’re back home. Now keep in mind that these are people from different countries…and some countries may have things that other countries don’t have, but apparently, these are some of the things they miss the most:

  • #5 Mozzarella Sticks

    …but here’s the catch, you have to have the marinara sauce to dip the sticks in or it doesn’t finish in the Top 5!

  • #4 Chick-fil-A

    We are surprised that you can’t get Chik-fil-A everywhere in the world, but clearly you can’t. Keep in mind that Wendy’s was also mentioned as well as In-n-Out Burger, Taco Bell and Cracker Barrel!

  • #3 Maple Syrup

    Probably the easiest to send anywhere is a nice fresh bottle of maple syrup…and clearly this person is NOT from Canada!

  • #2 Great Mexican Food

    If there’s one thing our country is know for, it’s great Mexican Food that you can’t get anywhere else in the world…this is truly a stumper on the list, but it came in at #2!

  • #1 American Chinese Food
