Run from these foods, Rams.
Early Tuesday morning the St. Louis Rams touched down at Heathrow Airport in London. On Sunday the team faces off against the New England Patriots in the annual NFL game in fabled Wembley Stadium.

Sure, there isn't a lot of European interest in American football -- perhaps the Rams should consider calling their sport "soccer" abroad -- but that doesn't mean the two teams can't at least enjoy the city and culture of London. And if they successfully avoid these seven English foods, there's no reason they shouldn't.

Bovril (Beef Tea)

This is basically bouillon, except instead of adding flavor to the base of a soup or stew, you mix it with hot water and drink it like tea.

In defense of beef tea, not enough hot drinks cause hypertension.

As a Brit, I have to say that I have never eaten eel pie, black pudding and really dislike the taste of anything kidney. However, when I moved over here 20 years ago, I was horrified to see that people enjoyed eating brains! So really it just goes down to what you are used to :)

By the way, marmite is awesome, but then again it seems that only people that were weaned on it at a young age seem to appreciate it. Spotted Dick, despite it's unfortunate name, is actually a very delicious dessert. You should try it!

I would definately avoid eel pie, but some of the kidney dishes are quite good.

Are you saying we should avoid foods we are not accustomed to? Some of these foods are quite delicious and I don't understand why they should be avoided. Shouldn't a food column try to expand readers' food experiences?

 @liz.miller01  @iEric That makes sense and I can understand that. Maybe it would be more clear if you had mentioned that? I think it puts your opinion in context.
