About This Quiz

England has its Yorkshire Pudding, Italy has its Pandoro, and when it comes to America, there is a huge variety of desserts, snacks and entrees that are uniquely ours -- from barbecue ribs to mac and cheese, and apple pie.  Plus, as you travel from one state to another, you'll find that regional favorites have become national favorites, too! Today you'll find New England clam chowder and San Francisco sourdough bread in grocery stores across the country. 

Best of all, America is a melting pot of cultures, so our food has been inspired by immigrants. You'll find influences in the sauerkraut of our Reuben sandwiches and in how Chicken Fried Steak is made in a similar fashion to Wiener Schnitzel. And, of course, we must thank Native Americans who gave us everything from popcorn to baked beans to Thanksgiving dinner. Above all else, when it comes to snack foods, America truly takes the cake. That is, snack cakes, chocolate-chip cookies, potato chips and more. Ready to identify foods that are uniquely American? Then get your taste buds in gear and drive through this tasty quiz. You may find an oldie but goodie you need to sample again.
