14. Pita Chips

Be they cinnamon, garlic, plain, or whatever, these are the perfect pseudo-healthy snack and go great with hummus, salsa, or peanut-butter.

pljfhsdljfh I’m hungry already.

13. Triscuits.

Triscuits.

The unproportionately large selection of Cheese & Onion crisps is basically making it impossible for other delicious savory snacks to hold their own on the market.

I didn’t even know Brown Rice Triscuits were an actual thing until I googled my long-lost cracker obsession. Tragic.

12. Kosher Dill Pickles.

Kosher Dill Pickles.

Don’t even bother ordering sandwiches. That empty spot on your plate where a pickle should be is too depressing.

11. Anything from Pepperidge Farms.

Anything from Pepperidge Farms.

Chocolate Chunk Cookies may be replaceable, but a life without Milanos or Goldfish is hardly worth living.

10. Graham Crackers.

Graham Crackers.

I would give my left arm to see s’more of these.

9. Non-Alcoholic Apple Cider.

Non-Alcoholic Apple Cider.

Don’t get me wrong. I love a cider from the tap more than just about anything, but the autumn just wasn’t the same without a warm mug of pressed cider.

8. Annie’s Shells and White Cheddar Mac & Cheese.

Annie's Shells and White Cheddar Mac & Cheese.

Probably the MOST first-world-problemesque item on the list, still Annie’s as a brand in general has been a major loss.

7. Pillsbury cinnamon rolls.

Pillsbury cinnamon rolls.

Pure, sugary breakfast goodness is only an ocean away.

6. Rootbeer.

Rootbeer.

I’m not even sure I remember what this tastes like.

5. Bisquick.

Bisquick.

One easy source for pancakes, pizza dough, biscuits, or other delightful fluffy treats is a just fantasy over here.

4. Iced Coffee.

Iced Coffee.

You can get an ice latte, mocha, any number of frappachinos, whatever, but most coffee shops don’t keep a refrigerated brew down below for us simple folk.

3. Ranch dressing.

Ranch dressing.

Okay, okay, Subway carries it, and yes, you can make your own, and the occasional bottle does turn up at Waitrose or a big Tesco. But the fact remains that you can’t carry your homemade ranch around to restaurants so you can put it on your sandwich or dip your chips in it. Also when you ask for it just on the off chance it might be your lucky day, you ALWAYS get offered mayonnaise instead. NOT COOL.

2. Flavored liquid coffee creamer.

Flavored liquid coffee creamer.

I can’t even talk about it.

1. Taco Bell.

Taco Bell.

    You have no idea… we have ALL of this!!

    I am not really sure what the point of this artile is, unless you are trolling.

    A. You can get most of this stuff, if you really want to
    B. Part of the joy of travelling is to experiene other peoples cultures and cuisine.

    If being able to eat American food is so important, bring it with you or search it out. Alternatively just stay in the good ol US of A. That way you won’t have to suffer ( and neither will we 🙂 )

    Another limited, small town article.

    Non-alcoholic cider IS NOT CIDER, but we can get it. In fact I’ve seen at least half of this
