10 Super Weird British Foods


The British have some pretty interesting food and drinks that you can’t find anywhere else.

Despite being staples of their diet, many of those items don’t translate to the rest of the world, and people around the globe find them to be downright weird. Take a look at these 10 examples from people who shared their thoughts on Buzzfeed.

1. Crisps in a roll

“The weirdest British dish is without a doubt crisp rolls. A dry roll. With crisps in them?! Why?!”

2. Spotted dick

“Once my British friends and I made a savoury pie with minced meat (ground meat) and I called it a mincemeat pie and they were like ‘oh actually…’ because apparently that’s WRONG!?!?”

7. Sausage rolls

“Why are y’all so obsessed with sausages and sausage rolls? Specifically from Greggs. What’s so great about Greggs?”

8. Black pudding

“Being an American with an English boyfriend, I spend a decent amount of time in north west England. Can’t wrap my head around black pudding. Pig’s blood and cereal? And it’s at every breakfast place ever there.”

9. Yorkshire puddings

“They are awesome, but so weird, like weird-shaped savoury pancakes.”

10. Beans on toast

“Yeah i don’t get the whole ‘mushy carbs on top of toast’ thing, i.e. beans on toast, fried potatoes on toast, etc.”
