Alabama Couple Introduces California Friends to Southern Food and Their Reactions Are Priceless

When you’re growing up, the food you eat depends on multiple factors. Do your parents or caregivers know how to cook and season their food? What type of food will you be eating? Do they only serve foods they grew up eating? These are good questions to ask about how you developed your eating habits. Some people prefer to stick with what they know. In contrast, others are introduced to all kinds of food. If you’ve never eaten a specific type of food, your first experience can be interesting.

In a TikTok video by content creator @thecordlefamily, they share their first time eating Southern Food. Yes, they haven’t eaten this kind of food before. We couldn’t believe they’d gone this long with butter beans and fried green tomato. Thank goodness they’re making up for the lost time. Southern food just hits differently.

Wow! Their reactions were hilarious and a bit confusing to us. Since many of us grew up eating Southern Food, we’re amazed when others are introduced to it. It’s like, where have you been? We’re thankful they really liked what they were served. Let’s see how the TikTok viewers responded. User @joseolvera1203 joked, “Bless her heart. She thought it was cornbread.” @Charles James said, “I’m amazed by how much I take for granted of the greatness of Southern Food.” @OliviaWestberry11 remarked, “THEY NEVER HAD SWEET TEA!” @Willie Farmer Jr. asked, “Wait. There are people who have never eaten food like this?”

Yes, these Southern Food newbies passed their taste test with flying colors. We’re certain they’ll be eating more Southern Food even after they leave Alabama. We’d be stunned if they didn’t. If you liked this video, please visit @thecordlefamily’s TikTok channel. You won’t be disappointed.
