If we are what we eat... what the hell are you saying about me?


I was going to write about London. But I seem to not have the right photo. Thus, I am showing you instead a picture of the American food section of our local supermarket. The Mexican food section has tacos, the Asian section has Thai, Curry, and Sushi, the Italian section has spagetti, and Americans have... Budweiser, marshmallows, and Oreo cookies.

If a stores foreign food section reflects what the locals think foreigners eat what does that say about the locals? Next time you are in a foreign food section, take a moment to think about our stereotypes. Meanwhile, I am going to keep laughing at the Danes. Marshmallows? Are you kidding me?

  1. Oh my god...that made me laugh so hard, Jamba Juice nearly came out my nose. No wonder the Danes think all Americans are whales. But, you know I can't think of a single food that I eat that is distinctly American. I mean, everything I eat is "ethnic" food. Tacos, pasta, sushi...maybe pot roast?
