Nice numbers anon.
>Can't really think of any american food or drink beyond the usual burgers, hotdogs, (non-italian) pizzas, popcorn, coke, etc., and I'm not even sure how many of those are actually american. Most of that stuff I only really liked as a kid; as an adult I actively avoid it.
There are a few things that are distinctively American in relation to food. For one Fried Chicken is definitely American. Also pumpkin pie and almost any dish that involves turkey. A Thanksgiving turkey is something I strongly suggest you try or better yet if you can find it, look for roasted or smoked turkey legs. Those are really good. Another food I can personally recommend would be corn dogs. They're distinctively different from hot dogs in the face that they are a hot dog on a stick dipped in a kind of better reminiscent of pancake batter and fried. It's something I suggest you give a shot.
Also, I apologize for suggesting you visit American cities. I actually hate American cities. They're anti-god, anti-nature, and anti-human. Some of the worst places you could probably live are big American cities like LA, New York, and Seattle. There are a few okay cities that I personally recommend like Amarillo, Texas and Flagstaff, Arizona. It's also no coincidence that both cities have a population of less than 1,000,000. Amarillo for the Big Texan steak house and Flagstaff for the beautiful nature present. Also the Elk that inhabit that region are quite Majestic too.
>Does Mexican-American count? I love a burrito. If not, fried chicken. Is that American? America is such a culturally confused place it's hard to know what counts.
If you're talking about Mexican-American food, that is referred to as "Tex-Mex". The word itself is a combination of "Texas" and "Mexico". America is certainly culturally confused. I guess it's what happens when there's a bunch of different people of different background in a nation. I don't think it's possible to change it however. The South, has a very distinctive culture and probably the most unique in the entire country. So much so, I even refer to the white people that inhabit that region as "Southern Whites". If there is one region I suggest you visit, it's that one or Texas.
>Does Pepsi Max count? I also had coffee with molasses in America, that was pretty tasty.
Yeah it does. I've never personally had Pepsi Max myself but I'm glad you like it. There are few root beer brands I suggest you give a shot, those being Frostie's and Dad's root beer. I should mention for those unaware, root "beer" is not alcoholic.
>I visited California and enjoyed the food a lot. My next choice would probably be texas or somewhere in the south to try the BBQ.
California has to be the biggest shithole in the entire Union. I would know, I grew up there. I admit it probably has Mexican food on par with Texas but culturally it sucks. That's where some of the worst companies in the world are located. I would strongly suggest you visit either Texas or The South. They're both much more culturally interesting and They are also culturally superior to anything you'd find in California. Maybe one day, I'll make an American travel guide for /britfeel/.
Oh yeah, and uhh, Florida is also cool too.
