Not American?

Okay, so DH and I goof around a lot.

One of the things he likes to say to me is that I'm not American.

Why does he say this, you ask?

Because of my food dislikes.

There are very few things, really, that I just do not like.

Most of them happen to be 'American' foods- I do not like pancakes, apple pie, watermelon or bacon (I know, I should be burned at the stake for that one!).
Also, I'm not big on chicken, I don't like tea (except for chai tea, which, IMO, isn't really tea at all), I don't like mushrooms, olives or onions, either.

So, in your opinion, am I not American because of my food preferences? The first four are really his point- since those are AMERICAN faves, KWIM?

Also, what foods don't you like that are cultural faves (whatever culture/country you come from)?

We joke like too when someone, or one of us, says something of a dislike of something "American". We've done it a lot with bacon, we both love bacon.. But we say "you don't like bacon? That's unamerican, everybody loves bacon."

That post is what inspired this one, tehe.

Yeah, I knw. I'm weird.

I have NEVER, in all my 29 years, met another person who doesn't like them.

I don't like pancakes, waffles, macaroni and cheese, jello, pudding, cheesecake, velveeta, white bread, boxed cookies, club crackers... and I don't consider myself a picky eater!

My friends tell me I'm not a woman because I don't like chocolate. I find it amusing.
