American Ethnic Food

(YouTube link)

Simone Smith visited a gourmet supermarket in Berlin and found an American section among the ethnic foods! Now stop and guess what she found there before you see it. I imagine they stock it with "comfort foods" requested by Americans living in Germany. -via Buzzfeed

I'm guessing that's KaDeWe in Berlin that she's at. When I lived there a few years ago, it was nice to go there and get a couple American groceries once in a while. They had canned softdrinks in 12oz sizes instead of the usual European .33 liter size. My buddy and I also got to try samples of some super-high-end variety of Jack Daniels whiskey - nothing I'd ever had in America before. The last time I went was around Thanksgiving, and they stocked boxed stuffing and jars of whipped marshmallow.

Saw someone mention peanut butter earlier. That's a regular grocery store item in Germany nowadays, so you wouldn't have to go anywhere special for it. There's a European precedent for PB - it's an old Dutch food, but it's savory. Germans typically eat the American-style sweetened PB.
