Comfort food often takes on the identity of something gooey, cheesy and creamy. But it doesn't have to be. It could be anything, really. Comfort food can be healthy, too. Maybe your mom used to make the best salads for you when you were younger. Now, as an older human being, you might crave salads when you're feeling down and need something to make you feel better.
Each region also has its own idea of what comfort food is. Cornbread and collard greens are a big part of the South when it comes to needing a little pick me up, while clam chowder and fresh oysters might do the trick if you're up in the New England area.
But someone who really understands the ways of comfort foods will be able to name all of the comfort foods under the sun. Is that you? Maybe so. These foods are designed to cheer us up when we're sad, make us feel like a kid when the world of adulthood gets to be too much, and help us feel like we've earned a treat. It could be the thing you reach for on a rainy day, a snowy day, a summer day, really any day! Are you the one who can name all the comfort foods? Take this quiz and find out!
