List of Food Ideas for the USA
Cookies are very much associated with Girl Scouts of the USA because of
their annual 'Cookie Sales'. Although in the USA these cookies are made
professionally, try finding a recipe to make on your own, or check out
the two official Girl Scout cookie bakers' web sites - America's
Best Cookies (known as abc) and Little
Muffins (like large cupcakes) and chocolate brownies are popular American
The USA is thought of as the international 'home' of fast food. Serve hot
dogs (use frankfurter type sausages) and burgers. Don't forget all the
'trimmings' (especially for the burgers) - lettuce, tomato, onion, ketchup,
mustard, gherkins, and anything else you can think of ... !
Iced Tea is a popular drink - especially when it is hot! Make sure you
serve all your cold drinks with lots of ice!
Pies are popular desserts - lemon meringue, key lime, Mississippi mud,
pumpkin, apple (usually with cinnamon), peach, to name a few!
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are also popular with kids. (In the
UK, jelly is known as jam!)
