America. The land of plenty. It is said that anything you could ever want is available here, or at least can be obtained. However, you will be surprised at the number of items of food we cannot get here, for money or for love. They are very delicious, though mostly junk food.

Here is a list of 10 such foods.

1. Aero Bar

Aero BarAero bars were originally produced in the UK, and have a unique soft texture full of little bubbles.Available in several flavors it is now to be had in Australia, Canada, and South Africa. But not in the States. Shown here is the Mint Bar.

2. Clam Chowder Doritos

Clam Chowder DoritosWhoever has heard of a Clam Chowder Doritos? The Japanese have. Corn chips dressed in clam chowder, they are but one of the many different flavors that Frito Lay Japan produces. A couple of others are Grilled Chicken Skewer Doritos or even Squid and Soy Sauce Doritos. Given that it is the Japanese wing of an American company, it’s a wonder they are not available here. Go figure!

3. Mega Mac

Mega MacAnother one that is eminently doable here but isn’t. The Mega Mac dwarfs the Big Mac with 4 beef patties, and stands twice as tall as our largest MacDonald’s product. You can get it in Australia to Pakistan to Korea, but not here. Why can’t we have it here? A mystery hard to solve!

4. The Hot Blondie

The Hot BlondieThis one from Burger King, may have a ridiculous name but listen to what it’s got! Its vanilla sponge cake filled with molten hot white chocolate and topped with whipped cream! Mouthwatering, no? Wouldn’t you like to order it?You have to take a trip to the Netherlands for that. Why not Here? Don’t ask.

5. Mirabelle Plums

Mirabelle PlumsThis is small smooth-textured plum which is sweet and flavor-full. It is available in the eastern Mediterranean and in France where it is grown in Lorraine. Our import laws are such that it cannot be imported to the US. More’s the pity!

6. Ebi Filet-O

Ebi Filet-OThis one originated in MacDonald’s in Japan. It is baby shrimps embedded in breading and deep fried until golden with a panko crust between normal sesame seed buns. It is soft, juicy and succulent, and you can actually taste and see whole shrimp. Yummy? We agree. Available in Japan and Singapore but sadly, unlikely to be seen on these shores.

7. Curly Balls

Curly BallsA French product. Tastes rather like peanut flavored Cheetos. It’s a very crunchy ball filled with peanut paste, and comes in several flavors. You won’t find it here, probably because Cheetos is far too strong a contender.

8. Kit-Kat Pops

Kit-Kat PopsYou get these in the Middle East at Pizza Hut outlets. Kit Kats rolled into a pizza bread dough, deep fried and crisp, dusted with cinnamon and sugar. Sounds delicious! Only in the Middle East.

9. Kinder Eggs

Kinder EggsAlso called Kinder Surprise are made by Ferrero, Italy. It is a chocolate egg with a toy inside. About the size of a hen’s egg, the chocolate layer is made of a top layer of milk chocolate and an under layer of white chocolate.Inside it is a container and inside that, the toy. Wouldn’t you say that is an ideal gift for a kid? It is available all over the world, even Canada. The USA, however bans it under the “Federal Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act” as a “choking hazard”.

10. Green Tea Kit Kat

GreenTeaKitKatActually called Matcha Green Tea Kit Kats. They have the flavor of Matcha Green tea. An exotic taste, from Japan, where you also have a lot of other exotic flavors like ‘baked potato’. Again it should be available here but isn’t. Perhaps they fear that it would not sell well enough.

So what do you think of these amazing foods. Would you like to taste some of them? Unfortunately, to do so you’d have to travel quite a bit!
