These 10 Food Origins Will Probably Shock You

There are some things in life we know to be true: Leftover pizza never lasts longer than a few hours, you never make anything as good as your mom, and Nutella goes with everything. But do you actually know where your favorite foods come from? You might be surprised. Read on to find out some shocking food origins that will make you question everything.

10 surprising food origins

Flickr user mommyknows { Kim Becker }

1. Apple Pie 

Oh god, please say it ain’t so. It’s the quintessential American dessert! Nope, this treat was invented in the UK. The first recipes for a pie made with apples is from an English book waaaay back in the 1300s. Bummer.

2. Churros 

The classic Mexican dessert is not from Mexico at all. It might have been from Portugal, Spain or even China.

3. Croissants

These puppies are not French. Gasp! It’s true. They were originally invented in Austria, and then later brought to France.

4. Tikka Masala 

It was invented in India, right? WRONG! This classic dish was actually first created in the UK too.

5. Pupu platter 

Not Chinese. Nope. It’s Hawaiian. It was first introduced to the U.S. by a Hawaiian restaurant though, so we can see why there might have been some confusion.

6. Caesar Salad 

Ok come on. This one has to be Italian, right? Nope. It was first created in Mexico – but the creator was an Italian immigrant.

7. Chimichangas 

Deadpool’s fave is actually originally from Arizona. The real debate lies in exactly where in Arizona it first got started.

8. Donuts 

The first mention of “dow nuts” comes from a British recipe book that’s over 200 years old. Sorry, America.

9. Ice Cream 

China. You’d better believe it. A dessert made of  “frozen milk” dates all the way back to 607 A.D. during the Tang Dynasty. You might associate it with Italy (and let’s admit, gelato is hard to forget) but it wasn’t introduced to Italy until a guy named Marco Polo came along.

10. Hamburgers

NOT American. These were actually brought from Germany – specifically Hamburg. Get it? Hamburgers? The Hamburg style of serving chopped steak was brought with German immigrants to the U.S. in the late 190os.
