.. like to eat savoury foods with sweet sauces.
And they have a tendency to put the name of other countries before a certain food to make it seem authentic and less American for e.g “Italian Sausage” and “Brazilian Mojito” (a drink my Brazilian friend told me he has not heard of lol)
The subtle differences in food — even down to “sweet” breakfast items as the everyday norm — e.g. pancakes, sweet pastries, sweet breakfast cereals etc …. I remember being quite shocked from a health promotion perspective. In the end, I was desperate for decent whole grain bread or unadulterated/wholegrain muesli with macadamia nuts, sunflower seeds etc. And fresh fruit and juices that were seasonal — rather than the reconstituted ones. Maybe we are spoiled?

I am surprised that here in California (I’m not sure about elsewhere) but they have to legally display the number of calories in each meal, at fast food restaurants.
