About This Quiz

Few things are more personal to us than our taste in food, but have you ever stopped to think about how your tastes were shaped? Sometimes, it's as straightforward as where we grew up and the foods we were served at the family dinner table. Every country around the world has their standard dishes and their favorite treats, but what do the things you hate say about where you live? 

If you feel more comforted by poutine than mac and cheese, it would seem that would place you in Canada, but food is not that simple! You might simply have a more developed palate than other quiz takers, and we cannot base your country of residence on one question. Instead, we are going to tally up all the foods you despise and compare them to countries from around the globe. 

To keep things fair, we won't ask you about local foods from Guam that no one has heard of except for the locals. We're going to figure out where you live by asking you about popular, everyday foods eaten all over the world. Will the ones that you can live without tell us where you are? Tell us how you feel about broccoli, and we'll do our best.
