"What do those burgers taste like? "
"Wow, really what does America taste like? "
"wow, that is... That is very deep."
"Is that all you can say? "
America. - MoldySock

2 Rice

I love eating rice. So I just smell it before cooking, its just so good. Love the smell so much.

But the uncooked one.

The uncooked one.

It refresh me.But only before cooking.

3 Garlic

Garlic always makes me hungry. The strong aroma of, I don't know, crunchy and tender garlic bread, lean and meaty garlic roast chicken, or a spicy garlic-rich stir fried beef; once I smell garlic, I eat. Even if I've just had seven courses of a garlic-free meal. Addictive stuff. - PositronWildhawk

I agree with you 100 percent on that, PositronWildhawk. Just not before or during a date! Under those circumstances, go for bacon! - beatles

12 Fries French fries are served hot, either soft or crispy, and are generally eaten as part of lunch or dinner or by themselves as a snack, and they commonly appear on the menus of fast food restaurants. Fries in America are generally salted and are often served with ketchup; in many countries they are topped more.
13 Bread

Depends on the bread. Garlic bread, for instance, makes me more hungry than oatmeal with butter. - PositronWildhawk

14 Fried Onion

Onions dry-fried; what a hunger-inducing smell! - PositronWildhawk

15 Meat

I’m practically a carnivore. DEATH TO VEGANS!
