    Hahahha This Is What The Rest Of The World Calls "British Food"

    Wtf is a Coffee Crisp??

    1. So supermarkets around the world often have a shelf of "British" food. But what exactly do they think British food is? Let's take a look...

    2. Tennessee:

    Tea, jam, marmite, spotted dick, Bisto, beans, and biscuits. Yep, pretty much Britain down to a tee.

    3. Although there's the small matter of Barry's Tea, which is Irish.

    Guys, get it right.

    4. Florida:

    Beans, check. Rich Tea, check. Marmite, check. So far so British.


    6. We don't have Coffee Crisps in Britain.

    We have Toffee Crisps but not Coffee Crisps, what is going on.

    7. Indiana:

    Tyrrels crisps getting a look-in here, nice and posh. But again, we're witnessing a large quantity of Irish produce bundled in with the British. But also they have Spam, well done.

    8. Washington:

    9. New York:

    10/10 Maltesers shelf but quite intense signage.

    10. Austraila:

    You've got your mushy peas, Pot Noodles, Bisto, Paxo, Hellman's, Colmans, and, crucially, Tunnocks Caramel Wafers – Scotland represent.

    11. Australia II:

    Guys, we're flattered. We love sweets and crisps and fizzy drinks, but what the ever living fuck is going on with your ~packets~ of Jaffa Cakes. THEY SHOULD COME IN NAVY BLUE BOXES.

    12. Dubai:

    Twitter: @PlanetRetail

    Plenty of Pot Noodles, various mayonnaises, and loads of tins of soup. Also, great to see Angel Delight getting the recognition it deserves.

    13. Spain:

    Twitter: @unsaltedrhino

    It's got a frankly classy selection including Jordans, ooh. Luxury Cookies, oooh. And some quality shortbread, oooooh.

    14. But omg what is going on with this massive Ferrero Rocher?

    Twitter: @unsaltedrhino

    It's nice to know what the rest of the world consider British "essentials".

    15. Canada:

    Twitter: @ScotlandFoodie

    Pretty much an entire shelf dedicated to the jewells in Tunnocks' crown here. Also loads of mushy peas. Mushy peas and Tunnocks: The diet of kings.

    16. Monaco:

    Quite a few of the usual culprits here, HP, Lea and Perrins, Heinz. But interestingly, also a whole shelf of Sharwood's chutneys, a true British staple.


    18. So far so British (and Irish). But here's where shit gets quite weird.

    19. Let's see what's going on in France:


    20. It's like. I mean. France, have you even met us?
