These 11 Louisiana Favorite Foods Are Illegal in Other Countries
When it comes to food, here in Louisiana we'll fight you over it. No, we aren't talking about a "battle royale" for the last crust of bread. Okay if the bread came from LeJuene's in Jeanerette we'd fight but for basic bread, nah, we good. We are basically saying there are some foods that we are willing to "pay the ultimate sacrifice" to protect.
Want proof? Disney Gumbo are the only two words you need to know. Go ahead and click on the recipe and see if you could even stomach watching them make this sludge much less eat it. When this recipe was published people from Louisiana were actually calling Disney asking them to make it stop.
And while we are protective of many of our cultural favorites such as gumbo, jambalaya, and etouffee we realize that many of those foods aren't the healthiest choices one could make when it comes to nutrition. That's because in Louisiana we don't eat to live, we live to eat. This is why it was quite concerning when I learned that many of my favorite foods and snacks are actually banned in some foreign lands.
And when you consider that the menu that is served in some of these foreign lands includes bugs, insects, and bats, we all remember what happened last time somebody ate a bat that wasn't Ozzy Osbourne, right? You'd think these highly produced and scrutinized American foods would have no trouble making it past the "health codes" of other governments. But that is not the case.
Be ready to be surprised at what popular American foods and snacks you can't enjoy in certain other lands.
