Food to try when coming to America for the first time

My teenage sister is a combat soldier in the military. And so, when she got approved to come to visit me in the US we were so excited. It's was her first time in the US, and the first time she had visited me in the seven years that I have lived here.

One of the best ways to experience a new culture for the first time is through food. And while I knew I wasn't going to be able to show her everything there is to see in just six days, I was going to feed her classic American food. Below is everything she tried for the first time, and her ratings.
