** Texans also love their kolaches for breakfast. The Czech pastry was brought by immigrants in the 19th century, and while traditional varieties contain fruit or a sweet poppy seed filling, since becoming a fixture in Texas they’ve been stuffed with everything from sausage to scrambled eggs to barbeque. In the historical Czech Belt in Central and Southeast Texas, along with the major metro areas, kolache bakeries are as ubiquitous as donut shops are elsewhere, and most bakeries and gas stations throughout the state will stock at least a few varieties.


** Western Pennsylvanians love to put french fries on sandwiches, salads and pretty much everything else. Chocolate is also a statewide favorite.

* Music/WeirdAlYankovic is famous (infamous?) for his love of his own invention, The Twinkie-Weiner Sandwich, which is comprised of a Twinkie (cut longways across the bottom) into which a hot dog is inserted, then topped with spray cheese. Since becoming a vegetarian, Al has used tofu dogs in the recipe.

** Dogs like {{Stock Femur Bone}}s. Meat, especially those that leave behind {{Stock Femur Bone}}s, and manmade dog treats, especially those shaped like {{Stock Femur Bone}}s.
** Elephants and peanuts. In reality, elephants are OK with peanuts, but much prefer coconuts. They also like bananas, oranges and watermelons. But they really hate chilli peppers, which can result in massive sneezing fits. Many African farmers grow chilli hedges around their crops to protect them from greedy wild elephants. Elephants are known for liking buns, and they do eat breads as snacks in captivity.

%% doesn't it count as WeirdCurrency instead? * The Trobrian Islanders of Papau New Guinea - Yams. To the Trobrianders Yams aren't just a food source, they're a major way of economic and political life. For them, trading yams is like trading money. A chief's power is usually symbolized by how many yams he has in his yam house (yam houses are like bank accounts to the Trobrianders), which is the result of marrying many wives and the families of those wives tending his yam gardens. A slight subversion to this trope is that unless out of hunger or for a truly special occasion (like marriage, with the sharing of yams creating alliances and social obligations), the Trobrianders rarely eat their yams because eating them is like eating their own currency.

When Sharon first went into a vegetative coma in 2006, doctors attempted to use the smell of roasted meat to wake him. It did not work, and Sharon remained in a coma until his death in January 2014.

Packet versions of East Asian dishes such as mi goreng or ramen are both popular, as they are very easy to make and can be mixed in with any number of other things. Chickpeas, kidney beans and lentils are also much beloved, especially among vegans and vegetarians.
