The toilets are different too. That's another story.
Litle P loves pancakes but I haven't found pancake syrup. I need to investigate grocery stores in Messina to see if they sell American items.
Other items I haven't come across:
pecans (I knew I wouldn't find them)
frozen corn - There isn't alot of frozen food here but it seems to be the same items from 10 different brands. Only veg I have seen is green beans, peas and spinach. I did get a bag of frozen stuff to make minestrone.
ground cloves - found whole ones, though
In the US we bought a pasta called orzo. It looks kinda like rice. But here orzo is barley...strange!
I can't think of anything else right now...
Corn nuts...here they are called mais, tostato e salato. I was shocked!
Boy, are they good too! Best snack food I have found here...
Maybe these are more familiar to some of you packaged this way. I grew up eating these in Texas but I think I only found a few bags in Pennsylvania.
I was surprised to find French's mustard, BBQ sauce, avocados, mangoes, taco shells, flour tortillas and other Mexican foods, worchestershire sauce, soy sauce and Asian foods.
