: Sorry, that made me laugh SOOO hard. I'm a little more careful about where I get my recipes!! My grandmother would spin in her grave if I used some of those things!!! :
They don't really make "fish and chips" per se in the States. We fry fish and potatoes, but usually you have to go to a restaurant to get them, so they're either on a plate or in one of those dreadful styrofoam "to go" boxes. I never saw anyone serve something in newspaper until I bought pommes frites in Germany.

I'm really sorry I can't help myself :
Um... it's a quote from an author. If I edited it, it would be incorrect. I guess it's a quandary. Maybe for the first 3 million years everyone had the same personality!

We have Mars Bars in Canada, and they don't have nuts, but they still aren't as good as the imported ones.
I haven't had fish and chips in newspaper since I was a little kid. White Spot serves it on fake newspaper

The British Butcher in North Van used to sell a lot of imported chocolates. I found most of them to be better than the ones in Canada...although I still tend to like most Canadian versions better than their US counterparts. I only found out a few years ago that there was a difference.

When I lived in NZ, my kiwi boyfriend was obsessed with cheese whiz -- you know, aerosol cheese in a can. I went home to the states for christmas and he begged and begged me to bring him a can.
I'd do all sorts of wicked things for a tim tam.
