    Well it's neither food nor British, so probably not.

    Sorry
    It is edible though -- but presumably would depend on whereabouts in Ireland it originated as to whether it's British :confused: Obviously the coffee part isn't.

    Edit: Just found out it originated in Shannon Airport

    Nothing's wrong with it, it's just generally quite boring compared to food from some other countries.

    Okay the thread title said food but in my post I did mention cuisine which would then include drink too, since cider has been mentioned now.

    Is the jacket potato British or Irish? :eek:

    Oh dear, where to start...

    When we were in England on vacation the first time, we would stuff ourselves with toast for breakfast 'cos we never found anything edible for lunch/dinner. Best thing we could find was McDonalds. :rolleyes:

    Even breakfast had its 'flaws'. I like toast and cereal, but COOKED breakfast? Who can eat beans/sausages/hot tomatoes in the morning? :confused: And the jam they brought for the toast was mainly orange... *shudders* Everyone tried to get to the strawberry jam first.

    I'm really not a fan of fish and chips, either. Especially not the chips. It's like the potatoes have been cooked and then baked before frying. And why do they ask if you want vinnegar on them? :confused: That's for salads only surely!? Salt and ketchup or mayonaise on a load of fries is the way to go!

    Also, chocolate is quite different. I had a Cadbury cream Egg once and that was delicious, but if you buy normal chocolate it tastes... well, different. Less sweet, maybe.

    *tummy growls*

    One thing I noticed is that there are berries in everything. Like blueberry muffins, raspberry cakes... Now that is something I encourage - it's not all bad!

    British food is fine if people bothered to look at a longer range of stuff instead of a few dishes they don't like. Bit like holidays really - too much fuss on Spain etc when elsewhere is just as good.
