Travel Tales: Taste of America in Madrid Spain – What they think Americans eat
I came across a store in Madrid that had a “Taste of America” section. It was in a VERY chic grocery store (the best in the city), with fancy goods and chocolates, which made it seem all the more….. absurd to me.
I couldn’t help giggling over the products they chose, and thought I’d share the photos with you:
COCA-COLA AND 7UP OF COURSE
DUNCAN HINES IS VERY AMERICAN
4.6 EUR is is $6.20 USD by the way.
A whole Duncan Hines selection!
Complete with Hershey’s Strawberry Syrup at $6.81 USD:
Then you eat some Pop-Tarts with your cake smothered in strawberry syrup (or strawberry-laced milk) at $7.95 for a box of 8 Pop-Tarts.
I thought they totally missed out on stocking Kraft Dinner of all things which to me is quintessential Americana, hotdogs, and potato chips, although I must say that hotdogs and potato chips are already available everywhere as a normal thing to eat in Spain and not a high-end, luxury good.
Oh god, no wonder Americans have a problem with obesity 😛
