Oh, and I thought the beef wellington looked like a cherry turnover.

candy corn is the american for ice lolly, but crepe is french and its a pancake so i think pancake should be given for that.

Candy Corn is not 'American for ice lolly', popsicle is. Candy corn is not ice, it is just a normal lolly.

It isn't hard candy, either. The texture is more like waxy fondant.

I love these picture quizzes, but some of these pictures were unrecognizable to me. I missed the fresh mozzarella and the fennel, both of which I use often. The Reuben sandwich is just scary looking!

@what is cricket, crepe and pancake are not exactly alike and the way of making them is different. For example, a crepe is really thin and is eaten with pretty much everything (smoked meat, mustard...) while a pancake is thicker and is usually eaten with maple syrup.

In Britain, when I was growing up, pancakes were like crepes, what the US called pancakes were called Scotch or Scottish pancakes. And the picture also looks like a blintz which I think should be considered as an option.

Looking at these pictures with fresh eyes, I agree that the pictures are not always clear. Remember to click the thumbnail to get a bigger image.

It was really hard to find good images for this quiz. :(

Udon and Bonito Flakes are Japanese; Prosciutto, Deviled Eggs and Bruschetta are Italian; Paella is Spanish; Crepes are French; Mozarella is a well-known cheese; Dont think i need to mention the vegetables, nuts, or seasonings (Fennel). The only foods on this that are specific to the USA are Candy Corn, Beef Wellington, and the Reuben Sandwich--so that makes 3 out of the 20 foods. Maybe next time you go running your mouth, make sure you have all your facts straight.

Beef Wellington isn't American, either, and the Reuben was created in America, but named for the European-born owner of the restaurant. But Candy Corn is ours...all ours.

I typed lima beans and it didn't work for me, either. I typed it several times, then tried butter beans, too, which is another name for them. It didn't work, either.

@mjellerson I had problems with the lima bean, too--but who knows; it is late. I guessed lemon wedge and garlic clove for the mozarrella. Gah! Great, now I'm hungry.

Reuben = Corned beef, rye bread, sauerkraut, and thousand-island dressing + a few minutes on the grill. It rocks!

Candy corn is not "American for ice lolly" (popsicle is). And everybody thinks reubens are disgusting...until you try one.

All of the plural entries accept the singular form (e.g. "deviled egg" instead of "deviled eggs") except lima beans. Could "lima bean" be added?

I live in Quebec and the "Ruben" of which you speak looks more like a smoked meat sandwich. Any chance you could add that answer for your friends to the North?

I also tried: smoked meat, Montreal smoked meat, corned beef, pastrami - I think its only the sauerkraut that makes it a Ruben. I am Canadian too!

Could you accept Parma Ham for Proscuitto?

@Tammanyzer In England a crepe is more commonly called a pancake, so I think pancake should also be accepted for crepe (if it already isn't, I haven't tried).

so kids that are outside USA and do not celebrate Halloween are not normal? Thats why Americans are so often called stupid in the rest of the world!

Candy corn is a uniquely north American treat usually available around hallowe’en; edamame is young soy beans; a reuban and a smoked meat sandwich are nothing alike (rather like saying fries&gravy and poutine are the same thing); all crepes are pancakes but not all pancakes are crepes; and the mozzarella is fresh which is why it looks a little different! (oh, I got 18/20 -- mistook udon from ramen and didn't know the flakes at all) Nice quiz.

Good quiz, but a few comments: The photo for mozzarella is NOT mozzarella. It is bocconcini cheese. Bocconcini is always sold in dollops floating in liquid like this. Mozzarella never is. I realize that bocconcini is essentially immature mozzarella, but they are different cheeses with different qualities/tastes -- a foodie would never try to label that picture mozzarella. It's like labelling an egg "chicken". It would be awesome if you could accept "parma" and "parma ham" for prosciutto -- that's what the Italians in my neighbourhood call it. Also, I think you should accept "bonito" as well as "bonito flakes" since flakes is not a technical term for it, technically ;) To order it on udon it's not necessary to specify you want flakes, "bonito" would do. That said, if you order bonito in a sushi restaurant you'd get sashimi :P Thanks!

My grandmother had a more...let's say...colorful name for Brazil Nuts. Whatever you do...do NOT accept it as a solution.

That crepe looks like a pancake to me (I am English), they only become crêpes when you fold them over a filling. Hardly anyone here calls it Shrove Tuesday over here and call in PANCAKE DAY!!!! Particularly kids. Also, is there a reason you won't accept Noodles as well as Udon?

brazil should for brazil nuts
May 28, 2013

That crepe is a pancake. And the flan looks an awful lot like crème brûlée. First I tried "noodles", then I added "udon" in front of it (to make "udon noodles"), but that wasn't accepted. And the Brazil Nuts I know as para nuts. D: D: D:

creme brulee should work I felt- :(
Oct 21, 2013
ander217
(54)
Creme brulee is custard topped with sugar which is then caramelized under the broiler or with a torch. With flan, you put the caramel syrup in the bottom of the dish and top with the custard mixture before baking, so that when you turn it out on the plate the syrup covers the custard. They are similar but not the same.

Fennel...really? It looked like thyme. Or oregano. Or any other green herb which has been removed from its stem or hull or leaf, placed in a container, and photographed.

The Brazil Nuts look like pretzel rolls to me. Couldn't think of Crepe, German pancakes are very similar to Crepes so I kept trying pancake.
