What foods have changed America?

blackbookali | Sep 24, 2012 09:33 PM

Immigration is often the underlying force that changed what we American's eat. Could you imagine an America where college students would not be filling themselves up on lo mein and orange chicken combos along with pepperoni pizzas and burgers? Culture, along with technological innovation(cars and the drive thru lane, freezers and microwaves) steer what we eat. But what actual foods have been instrumental? My foods that changed America are the following:

hamburgers
BBQ sauce
coca cola
NY Pizza
Donuts
fried chicken
fruit smoothie

what are yours?
