- Before they were officially dubbed pancakes in America, they used to be called Indian Cakes. Crepes, on the other hand, have nothing to do with pancakes in terms of origin since they date back to 13th-century France.
- American toast is just a toasted piece of bread. But if youve ever had French toast, well, you know its a sweet delight of white bread soaked in a mixture of beaten eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.
- If youre in the UK, pigs in a blanket would involve wrapping hotdogs in bacon. Now heres where it gets trippy: the equivalent of American pigs in a blanket is called a sausage roll in the UK.
- Bacon in the US comes from the pigs belly and is served in thin crispy strips coated with fat. In the UK, bacon is from the pigs back, and its less fatty, thicker, chewy, and served in round slices.
- Americans will imagine a creamy custard dessert when they think of pudding. If you were to travel to the UK, youd get something way different. The British definition of pudding is anything thats been boiled in something else.
- In some parts of Europe, they leave the original coating on the eggs, and that coating protects them from contamination. In other parts, they vaccinate hens to keep the eggs disease-free.
- When we ask for breadsticks in an American restaurant, we get soft pieces of doughy bread and garlic that we can dip in sauce. But if you were having lunch in an Italian restaurant and asked for breadsticks, youd actually get the original version of grissini crispy baked breadsticks that can accompany your salad or be crunched on as a snack on its own.
- Ketchup is another one of those culinary items that got lost in translation. In America, you know that familiar red paste made from tomato, vinegar, sugar, and all the accompanying spices. However, if you go to Australia and ask for ketchup on your burger, the waiter might give you a funny look and say, You mean tomato sauce?
- What people in the UK call chips are what Americans know as French fries. On the flipside, in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa, what we call chips (the round things sold in half-empty bags), they call crisps.
- In most other English-speaking countries except for Canada, cookies are called biscuits. In fact, they only use the term cookies to describe the chocolate chip ones in particular.
- If youre in the UK, youre probably imagining me hopelessly trying to spread some Jell-O on my bread because for you, jelly is my Jell-O and my jelly is your jam!
- If you love American Milky Ways, wait until you try the European version! Its also made of chocolate and nougat, of course, but it doesnt have that layer of caramel in it.
