The inclusion of potato chips on the list comes as no surprise. I see potato chips at parties and other events everywhere.

No matter how you spell them—doughnuts or donuts—these delectable pastries are ranked number 9 on this list of the most popular meals in America.


The eighth place winner is ice cream. Another one of my favorites from my youth. I remember visiting the Thrifty store with pleasure.

Chicken tenders are item number 7 on the list. Americans adore chicken tenders, whether they come in the form of Chick-fil-A nuggets, McDonald's chicken McNuggets, or many other types.

An expression that is far too popular both here in the United States and in many other parts of the world.

Soft Drinks/Soda

The next dish is pizza, which is incredibly popular. It makes sense to me why it is ranked as the fifth most popular food in America.


Oreo cookies come in at number four on the list of the most popular foods in America. These adaptable sandwich cookies are incredible.

It's time for French fries, the third most popular food in America. I wholeheartedly concur; I adore French fries. They continue to hold a special place in my heart.

Hot dogs are ranked second on the list, after that. Yes! When I was conducting my research, I was aware that these would be included. I do consume a fair number of these every year. I joke that some weeks I eat one for lunch every day.

In America, hamburgers are the most widely consumed food. Surprised? Not me. I have a small hamburger addiction.
