Americans are known for their eating habits. Let’s talk about the top famous foods consumed in the country. A study from 2012 came to a conclusion that about 52% of the United State population believed that doing their taxes was easier than figuring out how to eat healthily. Another study, from 2011, revealed that on average an American consumes nearly one ton of food a year. That is crazy, isn’t it?
Understand that the focus here is not to talk about what is right or wrong, nor which is better or worse. We just want to talk about the five most famous dishes in America.
