So the other day I was craving some Walkers smokey bacon crisps or what the Americans call “chips” and started to realize how much I’m missing the English food!
There’s new foods here in America that I’ve discovered compared to back home which I’m enjoying rather a lot including Nutter Butters, Nestle Abuelta hot chocolate (best hot chocolate I’ve had!). Other than some new treasures which I now love and will be posting back home for my family in England to try, there’s loads of food back home I’m missing!
1. Fish & chips
Top one being Fish & Chips! I would always look forward to a “chippy” on a Friday or Saturday, having either fish and chips with mushy peas or chicken and chips with mayo (my mouths watering right now!).
Chocolate! I’m a big chocolate girl and you can obviously get chocolate here in the states but it’s not the same at all. English chocolate is very sweet compared to American chocolate which is why I love it, The good thing is I can buy it of amazon (yay!), it’s just very overpriced.
3. Roast/Sunday Dinner
English sure love their cakes and pudding, but when we say pudding it normally refers to dessert. There’s so much variety of puddings in England and as a family we would have pudding after dinner 80% of the time.
Sticky toffee pudding
Berry/Apple crumble & custard
5. British cakes/patisseries
We have such a variety of cakes and patisseries in Britain, so growing up we got a taste of everything. I didn’t eat cakes often when I lived in England but not seeing a huge variety in the states so I’m missing having a cake with a cup of tea every now and then.
Victoria sponge cake
Scone (not pronounced scon!)
