What would you do if you won the lottery? Buy a car? A house? A college degree? A hot dog?

These are the foods they would still eat even with millions in the bank.

2. Taquitos

This quick dish can be enjoyed as a snack or a meal. Most folks pick them up in the frozen section, but you can make your own at home, too.

This classic American favorite would be nearly impossible to give up for most Americans. All that gooey comfort goes a long way to creating great memories.

Ramen can be purchased for so cheap that it’s no wonder a lot of people grow up on the stuff. But it tastes so good that it’s hard to stop eating once you’ve started, and many people wouldn’t stop for love or money.

6. Corn Dogs

This lunchtime classic is an American favorite. Many kids fondly remember finding them in their lunchboxes.

Rice and beans are a cheap food classic. You can’t get much more affordable than a bag of rice and a bag of beans. Especially when those bags make multiple meals.

11. Tacos

Tacos are a part of the American culture in a way that many other foods will never be. This Mexican favorite is engrained in the minds of most Americans as being one of the ultimate comfort foods that they would never give up.

12. Fast Food Burgers

Apparently, while gourmet burgers are great, fast food burgers just “hit different.” So, no matter how much money Reddit readers have, they’ll still hit the drive-thru.
