You're nuts. It's called "kettle corn" and you have to try it to understand
Kettle corn is one of the greatest things on earth
As for the other post about a typical American dish, the answer really is that there isn't one. Foreigners will claim its hamburgers and hot dogs and french fries and there is certainly lots of that, but there are so many restaurants and chefs in the US right now producing "New American" or "American" cuisine that is world class. Problem is because Americans don't have centuries of culinary tradition they tend to borrow ideas and parts of recipes from other places and trends and ideas can change rapidly so its hard to pinpoint it. But the US is blessed with great land and produces great ingredients, and in general Americans - or at least those who can afford to - are starting to eat much better.
If you are adventurous and love sampling different foods and new ideas, there is no better country in the world to live in right now in my opinion than the US. You can easily find all cuisines and much improving US cuisine - particularly in the big cities.
