I’ve been accumulating, once again, references to my home country amid European grocery stores and markets. Above, from the refrigerated section of C1000, we have pre-packaged “American” pancakes. The curious thing about this one, to me, is that pre-packaged pancakes or pannenkoeken are a very Dutch product. And yet, the one peeping through that window by the American flag does resemble something produced by my dad and a frying pan on a Sunday morning…
The truly unfortunate thing about this photo is that there is nothing to give you the size perspective of this T-shirt. It could have housed a family of five. Interpret at will.
And last but never least common: another sighting of American cookies. These particular cookies appeared at Marqt in den Haag, a Whole-Foods-esque store (though smaller), which annoyingly will not let you pay cash, no matter how small your purchase. Therefore, buying a €1,90 cookie seemed silly.
