Hey, who knew?
What the hell am I talking about? Well, let me tell you, ladies and gentlemen.
I’m talking about the fact that a lot of other countries out there have whole sections dedicated to American foods in their stores. This is kind of blowing my mind right now!
And, because we aren’t seen as the healthiest folks on the planet, a lot of these American sections are filled with JUNK…which I guess makes sense.
Hey, who are we to argue with these foreign folks? We love to eat stuff that isn’t good for us!
Check out these pics of American food sections overseas.
1. This needs to make its way over here.
I could see this catching on…

2. And here’s a flip side…
We’re practically related, anyway…
In 2019 someone in the UK posted the "American food" section of their grocery store and it was basically candy, Doritos and hot dogs in a jar. I am pleased to report on the BRITISH food section of my American grocery store (it's located next to the ASIAN foods). pic.twitter.com/FJFA02MFsB

Well, they’re not wrong about it.

5. A little taste of home.
When you find yourself across the pond.

7. It looks like Myanmar has a pretty good grasp on what we like.
What American food would you miss? Lindsay Swisher @msfsinfo'19 was entertained at this USA section of the international aisle in a grocery store in Yangon, Myanmar, where she is interning @PlanGlobal. #SummerSFS pic.twitter.com/FYUMkD2H28

10. Give it all to me!
I’m a glutton for punishment.
I always love showing my friends in the US all the “American food” in Germany so here you go. I gotta say, that snack box looks pretty legit. That’s a White Castle order. pic.twitter.com/M00Ldj5EvP

So many marshmallows and kinds of fake cheese. pic.twitter.com/WpAVknEDsQ
