Author of the channel "America under the microscope" on Yandex.Zen shared his opinion on food in the USA. Further - from the first person.
Contrary to common misconceptions, Americans love to eat not only fast food, but also the food we are used to. Their stores are similar to ours, but there are still differences.
I cannot put some American products on a par with their Russian counterparts. Either the Europeans or the Russians, having tried them for the first time, wry and complain. As it turned out, some food in Russia is really a level higher than in the States, and this is not an exaggeration.
Cucumbers and some fruits
This is my personal taste and it concerns only the warm States. When I first came to California, I bought tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and made myself the simplest salad that I could not even finish. Cucumbers there really tasteless, maybe somehow connected with the heat, I don't know. The same goes for, for example, apples and berries, which seem tasteless.
Most Russians call American bread "rubber" and for good reason. We are talking specifically about the store option, since there are good bakeries in the States and wealthy people buy bread there, but of course, the prices are appropriate.
As for the affordable, store-bought option - it feels really rubbery and tasteless, the difference with ours is just heaven and earth. And this applies to all types of bread.
On the subject: Why I Don't Like American Food Markets: My Personal Experience
On the shelves of many stores, there are mainly chocolate of their own production, designed for the domestic market, which I strongly do not recommend buying.
American chocolate is very different from what we are used to and is not at all suitable for the taste buds of Russians and Europeans.
Having tasted chocolate for the first time in the States, I was horrified, it smacked of burnt rubber. I was told that at first everyone has it and then I get used to it, but I did not try to “get used to” and just started buying imported sweets instead of local ones.
