Now, someone told me that in other countries, you have to ask for ice for things like Coca-Cola, otherwise you get it room temperature? True, or urban legend?

Now, i don't know about other countries, but in Peru if you ask for coke, they give you warm room temperature coke. they seem to think that putting ice in your drink is weird or makes you sick or something along those lines.  i apologize for my people! i believe that coke should always come as close to freezing as it can Smiley

ok... I have decided then. I will go to Europe, but not Peru. I must have ice. Cheesy

Y'all are making me hungry--and my accent is coming back (native Texan, transplanted to Washington state).  Other interesting foods I grew up around (perhaps more soul food than southern):  raccoon and possum, mostly likely grilled, especially for Juneteenth Celebrations (June 19--the day word of the Emancipation Proclamation reached Texas).  Then, I've also had alligator in gumbo.

Oh, and on the use of the word "coke"--every carbonated, caffienated beverage is a "coke" where I grew up.  As in,
A:  "Would you like a coke?" 
B:  "I'd love one, thanks." 
A:  "What kind?" 
B:  "How 'bout a Dr. Pepper?"

Other goodies I miss:  fried green tomatoes and fried okra at a good old church fishfry (I never knew that most folks don't fry as a main means of cooking until I left Texas).

I've since discovered fresh cheese curds, not fried, made by a WI transplant, and I'm addicted.

ramen is asian instant noodles!! they are sooooo [unhealthy but] good.. hmm im not sure if the word is japanese or korean coz they look similar but us koreans pronounce it la-meun and i have NO idea how the japanese say it coz i've only seen it written out. its usually spicy .. but they come in all different sorts of flavours now.. chicken.. beef .. seafood.. etc etc

eowynmn -- yes, I'm a Minnesotan. Unfortunately, I didn't make it to the fair this year. =( One of my favorite things to do is to explain the Pricess Kay of the Milky Way butter sculptures to foreigners. They make entertaining faces.

Lupin, I am so tempted to see if it will go through customs if I sent you a bottle.  Wink

oo, try it! you know i'll be too scared to use it on my cooking.
i'll just show it to everyone, and maybe chase people spraying "butter" goop at them when i'm drunk.
I'm pretty sure it'd get through. I mean, it's not as if there's any real food in it, right? Wink

i was trying to think about what california has food-wise that i would ever miss, but really, california just has food from everywhere else. 

THOUGH -- i must give props to american chinese food. i've had chinese food in italy and it SUCKS (lettuce is not bok choy)

also, perhaps burritos.  i would cry in a burrito-less world!!! avocados are wonderful here too.... hmmm.... garlic fries...

Ooh, I lived in texas for 10 years and I totally still do this! It was very confusing when I worked at the campus snack shop at my school in Boston and people would order a coke, and I'd be like, what kind, and they'd be like A COKE dumbass!

I kind of like some faky american foods. I'd be sad to live somewhere without processed american cheese food.

And lasandri, California has such great produce! Avacados and artichokes and fruit are all so tasty there. I'm always jealous of my California friends for that.

My neice just moved to Michigan from CA for school.  (Yes, everyone told her she was crazy) She said she can't find Mexican food there.  All they have are frozen flour tortillas.  I've never even seen frozen tortillas.  Here if you're lucky, you can get them still warm.
