How A British Grocery Store Defines "American Food"

I love to travel. And when I do, I look forward to the food that is representative of the country that I am in. Ham in Spain, Guinness in Ireland (it's good for you, so it's a food!!!), pizza in Italy...

But what do people around the world consider to be American food?

A woman in England recently took a few pictures at a local grocery store of their "American food" aisle and posted them to social media. Those pictures are now going viral because of the products the grocery store considers to be "American foods."

The foods in these pictures include:

  • Lots of candy, including Nerds, Reese's Pieces, and Jelly Belly jelly beans
  • Twinkies and Pepperidge Farms cookies
  • Breakfast foods like Pop Tarts and Lucky Charms. And even a generic version of Lucky Charms called "Marshmallow Mateys"
  • Pumpkin pie filling
  • A1 steak sauce, Jim Beam bourbon barbecue sauce, and liquid smoke
  • Jack Link's beef jerky
  • Hot dogs in a jar

Some folks online are upset, but I think it's hilarious! See the tweet that started it all below.
