—It’s always interesting to see what other people think of your culture’s eating habits and having a look at foreign store shelves is a great way to do it. This is exactly what happened when skiptonskipper posted an image of what the “American Food” section looks like in the UK and other people followed up as well.
The majority of them feature sugar. Lots and lots of it. Pop-Tarts, cookies, soft drinks, and various candies are among the most popular choices, however there is one product that seems to be everywhere – marshmallow fluff! According to findings in Ireland, Australia, Spain, Germany, the UK, and other countries this is one of the most American-like food there is. It would be interesting to hear what our American readers think of these “menus”!
