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"!

I've been traveling through South America for 3 months (have 15 more to go) and would kill for peanut butter. That's all. Just some peanut butter.

Pffff there's a lot of UK product on this pic. In France supermarket don't dedicate a full shelf to USA item, don't be mad, it's a mix of foreign product from UK to JAPAN.

Considering the two full shelves of Pepperidge Farm products, I'm now confident I could survive life as a political refugee in France.

As a west coaster and someone who has eaten authentic Mexican food all her life I would agree with you that it's not the real deal and an Americanized version. But in Paris that might be all u have to work with.

Yes, Goober. The convenient way to combine grape jam and peanut butter. Although the taste of it is kind of gooberish.

Wonder how many "Irish sections" you have in us stores, I am not from Ireland but your attitude is silly, do you really expect in the "us sections" to find all the goods you are buying in the USA !!!
