German Barbecue Sauce is Subpar

German Barbecue Sauce is Subpar

Another Lidl America Week has come and gone, and I almost felt like I was becoming desensitized to it, until I saw this new offering. I first saw the Cheese & Onion fish filets and thought, well that’s a bit odd, but then I saw the Barbecue variety. What are these shenanigans? Maybe it’s a regional thing, but I’ve never seen someone pair a breaded fish filet with barbecue sauce before. But it has the Statue of Liberty on it,…

American Things We Brought Back

American Things We Brought Back

I didn’t get my own pictures of everything before we devoured it all, but I thought I’d share some of the junk food we found worthy enough to stuff in our already full suitcases and bring back to Germany with us.

Flags Everywhere #12 – Lidl’s America Sale

Flags Everywhere #12 – Lidl’s America Sale

Several weeks ago, the grocery store Lidl had a sale on American-themed products, and I forgot to post my finds!!! Clearly this lapse must be fixed, so here is what I saw, all adorned with red, white, and blue packaging and pictures of Lady Liberty. How can you get more American than that? I’m not sure what “Amerikanos” actually are, they look like chicken tenders to me. I’m also not sure how many Americans would eat chicken tenders with curry…
