We've become accustomed to seeing aisles at the grocery store labeled, "Mexican Food," or "Asian Food," and it roughly encompasses some foods from the different cultures.
Well, apparently, when you visit other countries, they have similar aisles, except they label them "American Food," and they try their best to stock the shelves with whatever they feel embodies American culture.
Whether it's England filling up the shelves with A1 steak sauce and Pop Tarts, or Belgium filling it up with Soda and Mayonnaise, it's interesting to see how other cultures see our cultural food.
You can't really be mad at the selections in these aisles. We do love our snacks and sweets here in the US, so they're not really wrong.
Check out these photos, taken by several people, as we learn a bit about what other countries think represents us best:
