  • Hi, everybody! Welcome back to Top Words,

  • my name is Alisha, and today we're going

  • to be talking about American food, so

  • let's get started!

  • Apple pie, the first food is apple pie.

  • Apple pie is a delicious and sweet

  • American desert, it is, as it sounds, it is

  • a pie, so a bit of crust, and on the

  • inside is apple, fresh apple, I hope. Large

  • feast often have an apple pie for

  • dessert. In a sentence, my mom cooks an

  • apple pie every Thanksgiving.

  • Chocolate chip cookie, next food is the chocolate

  • chip cookie, this is a very popular

  • cookie, it's a simple cookie, just put

  • chocolate chips into any cookie, into

  • anything, and you can make a chocolate

  • chip cookie. If you eat it there's a very

  • kind of nostalgic childhood feel about a

  • chocolate chip cookie. In a sentence, when

  • I was a child I made chocolate chip

  • cookies with my mom and my brother.

  • That's true.

  • Hamburger, the next food is probably the

  • first food you thought of when I said we

  • were talking about American foods today.

  • It is the hamburger, woohoo! A beef patty

  • between two buns, two buns or two pieces

  • of bread, and depending on your

  • preference you can put anything you like

  • on your hamburger. Many people like to

  • use cheese, thereby making it a

  • cheeseburger, you can use lettuce, ketchup,

  • tomato, onion, mustard, relish, whatever go

  • crazy! Bacon, avocado, anything really!

  • I love trying new and interesting

  • hamburger combination!

  • Jellybeans

  • This is an interesting American food,

  • thy are colorful, they usually come in

  • a package about this size, maybe this big.

  • They are kind of a squishy jelly-like

  • candy, very very sugary, and they usually

  • have some kind of fruit flavor. You can

  • find the regular jelly beans, which are

  • sweet and delicious, or you can find

  • jelly beans which are maybe a mysterious

  • mixture. In a sentence, when I was a kid I

  • loved eating jelly beans.

  • This is an actual picture from one of

  • the, from a supermarket, almost all of

  • those are jelly beans, or their candies

  • to some degree. So you can see they're

  • like pins to scoop the candy out of,

  • there is a bin to like pour candy from.

  • This is amazing! American candy is just

  • unreal, there's so much!

  • Turkey

  • Ok the next food is turkey. Turkey is a

  • weird big bird that we almost always eat

  • at Thanksgiving.

  • That's right, turkeys, you're weird! In a

  • sentence, every year my family cooks a

  • turkey for Thanksgiving dinner.

  • Boston baked beans

  • the next food is Boston baked beans, this is something i haven't

  • had in a long time. As you might have

  • guessed, it's an East Coast style food

  • from Boston, so Boston style baked beans

  • are typically sweetened with molasses or

  • with maple syrup. In a sentence, I'm going

  • to make a chili later today with Boston

  • baked beans.

  • Grits

  • This is a food that comes from the

  • southern part of America, I didn't eat

  • grits growing up so I don't really know

  • very well. From a video that we did a

  • while back, we learned that grits are

  • commonly eaten at breakfast, you can eat them

  • with butter.

  • I eat grits every day for breakfast.

  • Hush puppies, here we are again! The next

  • American food is hush puppies.

  • Hush puppies from the same video that we

  • talked about grits, our friend Keith came

  • in and told us about

  • hush puppies. It's just a ball of dough

  • that is fried.

  • That's it a very very simple food, very

  • very healthy, surely, ya know. In a

  • sentence, I haven't had hush puppies yet,

  • and i really want to try them, but they

  • don't seem very healthy, so it's not high

  • on my to-do list.

  • Biscuits and gravy, ok great, the

  • next food is biscuits and gravy.

  • It's a very simple dish as you can guess,

  • it's just a biscuit and gravy, the gravy

  • is usually very very rich, very very

  • fatty, very fattening. This is a dish that

  • is typically eaten for breakfast, a

  • simple coffee shop or just yeah local, a

  • local simple restaurant might have

  • biscuits and gravy on the menu. In a

  • sentence, I used to eat biscuits and

  • gravy at my grandparents house in the winter.

  • Philly cheesesteaks! Oh my god! I'm

  • getting so hungry for a very not healthy food.

  • Ok the next food is Philly cheesesteaks,

  • a Philly cheesesteaks are so good. Philly

  • is short for Philadelphia, the city of

  • Philadelphia. Philly cheesesteak is a

  • sandwich from Philadelphia, the sandwich

  • has cheese and steak, oh my god, can you

  • hear my stomach?

  • Delicious! Delicious! It's a very

  • East Coast American sandwich. In a

  • sentence, if you go to Philadelphia make

  • sure you try a Philly cheesesteak sandwich.

  • Alright! So those are 10 American foods.

  • Have you tried any of these foods? What

  • did you think of them?

  • This video has made me very hungry.
