I'd say maybe just foreign chain menus?!? Like the menu from a McDonald's in japan? They're alot more different from the American one's (obviously). The items look more appealing. Other than that I think I live in a pretty diverse area so there's alot of things from other countries to try out.

Honestly? A Twinky. I don't know why, but I do.



You aren't missing a thing, trust me. I think twinkies are nasty. From what I remember years ago, it just...I could tell the sponge cake had chemicals, artificial ingredients, like you could tell just by eating it that the ingredient list had some long words that are hard to pronounce (and yes, this is the case with twinkies).

If both or you or either of you live in the United States, you can get chocolate pocky and strawberry pocky at the grocery store section of Wal-Mart stores. Just check the Asian section. At least, I find some in stock at my Wal-Mart.

I wish there were more Popeye's Chicken joints in New England. Closest one to me is like a 50 minute or 55 minute commute ONE WAY (so close to 2 hours round trip). There are hardly any Popeye's Chicken places in New England. I've had some of their sides and they suck and I hear the cajun spicy chicken tastes like crap (I'm sure, I've had their spicy boneless chicken [not bone-in] and didn't like it)...but their regular fried chicken...hot damn is that stuff great. Best fried chicken I've ever had. Kicks the crap out of KFC fried chicken, absolutely.

I finally had a shrimp burger at a Lotteria in Seoul a few years ago. Ditto for whoever mentioned Asian fast food restaurant choices; an all-American hamburger (if well-prepared) is great, but it'd be nice to have some of those other choices as well. Interestingly, many Asian versions of American restaurant franchises (e.g. Denny's) seem more upscale over there with better food, compared with the domestic version. I wonder why. Maybe it's a bigger deal to go to such a restaurant (perhaps considered "exotic" or "imported?") there than it is here.

Iberico ham was another thing I always wanted to try after hearing about it. Importing into the U.S. was prohibited for a long time, until just a number of years ago. Now, one can buy it at Costco-- extremely expensive, though. I don't really like alcoholic drinks, but one of these days, maybe I'll try real Absinthe just to see what it's like. Either production and/or importation into the U.S. had been prohibited for a long time as well, again until a number of years ago. I also wish all the innumerable variety of French cheeses were available here in the U.S.-- not talking about Brie, Comte and so on (which are just fine-- and readily available), but the little artisanal and farmhouse cheeses. Fortunately, local American artisanal cheesemakers are also on the rise. (I recall when growing up in the 70's and 80's in the Midwest, for all I knew, there seemed only 4-5 varieties of cheese in the world)

Another thing I want to taste again is "lian wu" (蓮霧), which I last had in Taiwan more than 20 years ago. I recall it being very juicy and sweet, tasting sort of like an apple or pear, but much softer flesh. I've seen lots of Asian fruits here in the U.S. over the years, but I've never found this one, even at specialty markets.

Chilean yogurts, this one specifically is stirred yogurt, with cherimoya fruit.
I have made cherimoya Ice cream before so I wanna try yogurt next.

Original
"En los yogures batidos, los de textura cremosa, con o sin frutas, el proceso es diferente, en cuanto la fermentación se realiza en depósitos, previo al proceso de envasado, que se realiza en frío, por lo que no necesita de fermentación posterior."

Rough Translation
"Beaten yogurts, those of creamy texture, with or without fruits, the process is different, in which the fermentation is realized within deposits, previous to the process of encasing, which is then realized within the cold, where subsequent fermentation is no longer necessary

Full Translation : interpretation to fit English
"Creamy texture beaten yogurts, with or without fruits, have a different fermentation process that happens within deposits, where the cold is all it needs. It doesn't require subsequent fermentation and is fermented before the process of encasing."
