Corn juice is just creamed corn without the pulp. Probably.

i’m from the Northeast so yeah, i think it’s all rly bad everywhere besides the Northeast tbh

oh yeah corn juice! I'm actually having trouble remembering what it tastes like, but it doesn't taste bad. It's like corn but sweeter and without the texture.

There's also corn popsicles, these I'm more familiar with:



there's probably more weird food but i don't know what people outside call weird food and not

oh, how about sugarcane juice? or is that common?

People apparently dip their pizzas in ranch here in Texas too. I had never seen or heard of it before until I moved here, and then I saw several people eating pizza that way all at once. It was a pretty weird experience.

Where I'm from, it's pretty common to put green chile on/in a lot of savory dishes, from cheeseburgers to soup, but I don't know if other people would consider that particularly weird. A traditional dish my grandmother would always cook for us was called pozole, which was made with red chile, chicken, pork, and hominy. Hominy is corn that has been soaked in lye and later rinsed off. It's pretty good!

It's not super common here, but another well-known dish is chicken with mole poblamo sauce, which is made with chili peppers and chocolate. It's not bad, and it doesn't taste sweet.

Apparently canned bread is a local thing here, but I've never had it...

One of my comfort food habits since a very young age is breaking up some cornbread in a bowl, pouring buttermilk on it and then eating it with a spoon like cereal. That's probably weird right

Lots of people don't get poutine. A great many of these people have only had "poutine" in some shitty US diner where they sprinkled the fries with shredded cheese and slapped a pile of gelatinous chicken gravy on top.

Fries (preferably thicker cut; 1cm diameter will do), cheese curds, liquid but not too runny pork or beef gravy. Gravy must be hot enough to help melt the curds slightly.

This is a very simple dish yet holy moly I have seen inventive ways of cocking it up.

Rose hip soup. I wouldn't say it's exactly common here, but you can find it in most grocery stores. (I happen to like it). It's generally served as a drink or part of a dessert though, rather than as a main dish.

I'm not sure how weird that really is, but I don't think that's a thing elsewhere....
