Grocery stores around the world often try to persuade their customers to buy more by having "exotic" displays of foreign products. However, they aren't necessarily accurate. Take the American sections, for example. You can find them in pretty much any country. Wild flavors of Dr. Pepper, chocolate-covered pretzels, hamburger cookies, and of course, Snapple—the cornerstones of every American diet. Continue scrolling, take a look at these shelves, and let us know in the comments if you think this is actually what Uncle Sam eats or the stores have stocked up on too much sugar and are trying to get rid of it!

I think this one is mostly ok. Substitute Virgil's for Budweiser, ad some mac & cheese and that's about it.

The price of American cereal over here is ridiculous. I’ve never tried any, only because I refuse to pay that much for a 330g box of cereal that wouldn’t share between 5 people for the week .

As an American, most of this looks right to me as quintessential American food. But canned black beans? I had no idea those were unique to the USA. I assumed canned black beans were a universal staple.

this is the most accurate to actual American supermarkets. Some healthy cereal, some junky, crackers, oil, dressing, cookies, jello, vinegar, pudding. I live in the US and this seems right.

I an truthfully say, as an american, that we have none of this, and I have NEVER heard of this brand. My guess is that it is in Europe and makes "American" food to appeal to the market.

This is the first photo that has Ranch dressing in it. I do think that's a "must" for an American grocery section.

All the stores feature representations of sugar galore in the 'American' section. What I find curious is no protein bars.

Cholula hot sauce and Stubbs BBQ sauce are about the best there is, really. And what’s with the baking soda??

Come on now. Baking soda? Surely this store also sells baking soda. I don't believe that's uniquely American. 😂

I am amused at the choice of "French's" for mustard at a French supermarket. I think it's one of the better yellow mustards.

What is with those "Dino's" jars??? They are in so many of these pictures, and in forty years of shopping I've never seen hot dogs in jars at any supermarket I've ever been in.

As far as i can tell, most of this stuff is legit, but I have never in my life seen *jarred* hot dogs in the supermarket. ( Just to the left of the Bisquick. )

I wonder who chose these particular items. The others have largely been a product of what people eat on American television, but this is a decidedly southern regional palate.

Whether anyone wishes to understand or "believe" ALL FOOD IS GENETICALLY MODIFIED. If it is fruits and veggies, they are all hybrids aka genetically modified, all protein are derived from hybrid animals aka genetically modified. What it should say, if correct, is screwed with the genes.

You can get them a pound cheaper and also not in an "american food" section in B&M in my experience. Thankfully, I got over my addiction to these, but my love of the Penn State sour cream and chive pretzels however, will never go away. ever.
