He has in recent days attacked: meat in general (I forget the details now, but the discussion of some flesh product was making him sick) s'mores in all their gooey varieties jello salads and ambrosia (sans jello -- only FROZEN coolwhip in my family, plus sliced bananas and apples, chopped walnuts and maraschino cherries, heaps of shredded coconut, and a fortifying splash of almond extract) What will be next? Chocolate chip sprinkled pigs-in-a-blanket? Dump cakes? Peanut butter and bologna sandwiches? Pork crackle? Fish sticks? Goosewhiz lunchtime spread? American cheese? Polish Boys? French hamburgers? Boston coolers? Ice-cold shandies? A six-pack of those "full-flavored" Buds? At what point does culinary patriotism kick in? What American foods *do* you eat, Wayne Glowka?
