Haggis is another example.
“It's not sold in the United States,” Bailey said of Scotland's national dish containing animal organs, vegetables and spices stuffed in a sheep's stomach. “It can't get USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) approval.”
It's still still popular across the pond, though, and may be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and even has a vegetarian option that is pretty close to the real thing.
As for desserts, or puddings, many start with bread and cream, and don't have a long list of ingredients.
“(Puddings) are dense,” Bailey said. “They're heavy, gooey and sweet.”
Scotland, especially, enjoys sweet and fatty foods, which have gotten them the reputation for the worst diet in the United Kingdom, and even Europe at one point.
Bailey enjoys clotted cream, a heated cream that forms a crust and is generally served on scones or other baked goods.
While pie signals dessert in America, a “pie” dish in the U.K. is generally not a dessert, except for in the case of Banoffee pie, a treat Bailey said she was certain was American until she left the United Kingdom.
“Everything about this dessert says American to me,” she said. “I didn't know it wasn't American until I moved here.”
Banoffee pie consists of bananas, cream, toffee, and boiled condensed milk.
The once commonplace tea time is making a comeback in the country, with several acceptable times of the day in which to enjoy the beverage.
Elevenses is the term for tea and a snack shortly before noon, which will tide one over until lunch. Tea time is generally about 5 p.m. when some families feed their children while the parents wait until at least 6 p.m. to eat alone, sometimes even eating a completely different menu.
