Today I learned that hush puppies are unknown in the Midwestern US and Scrapple is only a thing in the Mid-Atlantic.

What's the weird food you like that you didn't realize was weird until late in life?

Squid is my favourite thing. Everybody pulls a face when I tell them.

Though I'm vegetarian atm.

Really? People think calamari is weird? Huh, interesting. (I should get some for lunch)

I can't really think of anything that for sure fits into this category though. I feel like I've had a lot of access to a wide variety of different foods from different places just by living in California all my life, so there are probably a lot of things that wouldn't seem weird to me that other people might find strange. Like if someone went to a Japanese restaurant and ordered some octopus and sea urchin, I wouldn't bat an eye, but I can see how it might seem weird to someone with a different background.

Also...avocados. I don't care if it's a California stereotype. I put avocado on everything.

Putting butter/margarine on toast even if I'm adding a spread too. Scott finds this very weird.

This coming from a guy that asked when I first made him a bacon sandwich "Where's the melted cheese?" Like I was supposed to automatically know he wanted it.

I am 100% behind Scott on all of this.

While I'll admit that bacon and cheese croissants are one of my favourite things, I think it was more that he just expected the melted cheese to be there. Like bacon and melted cheese come together in every oppotunity, without question. He seemed so disappointed. :lol:

My sons both dip their cheese wedges in their yogurts because they are savages.

Bacon and cheese croissants sound lush.

Bacon and melted cheese only sometimes come together. You gotta ASK for it, dagnabit.

Squid is weird, though I guess I did start eating sushi so is it really THAT weird?

When I was on a ferry on my way to The Netherlands, I went to the buffet for dinner and grabbed a large helping of onion rings.

They were not onion rings. Never been so disappointed or disgusted in my life.

Americans have bacon and cheese with everything, they also seem to have an affinity for syrup and cream. One of the main reasons I like going there so much. :lol:

Saw Ava and Poppy both doing this the other day with multiple foods while I was eating lunch. I shrugged it off as they can like whatever they like, turned around and saw Amys face like... :sick:>_<.

You've spent too much time with Scotty over the years, clearly. His poison has seeped into your veins.

I do enjoy syrup, however... :shifty:

I've never tried that though I imagine it's heartattack levels of deliciousness.
