Non-Americans Are Sharing American Things They Wish Were Common Where They Live
Might make Americans realize the little things we take for granted.
Now, Americans are usually the subject of posts about all the things we do that are weird to non-Americans.
The thread went viral, with thousands of replies. Here are some of the top-voted and best comments:
1. "I forget what it's called, but the blender inside the kitchen sink [a garbage disposal] that makes your food waste into a smoothie instead of you having to fish it out in clumps with your hands."
5. "Mexican food and little grocery stores/deli shops on every corner. Some of the food they serve looks legit."
6. "Proper, good Buffalo sauce. Any Buffalo sauce offered in any restaurant in Australia is homemade and doesn't taste like Buffalo sauce, just a red-orange hot sauce."
8. "Peanut butter. I recently tried peanut butter and jelly and was blown away by how good it was. I was Squidward tasting Krabby Patties for the first time."
10. "A truly great and protective National Park Service. I'm Australian, and we have plenty of sacred and special areas of land, but they're slowly but surely being exploited by fossil fuel companies."
13. "From the Netherlands here; the love for BBQ food/restaurants. We have a few, but def no pitmasters."
14. "Easy refunds. I just went to Italy and bought the wrong date for some museums and was told tough shit. Lost 45 euros..."
15. "Halloween. I'm in Australia, and Halloween here is pathetic. It's spring, so it's still bright out when everyone's trick-or-treating, and when it's finally dark, everyone's done for the day."
"Barely anybody decorates their house, and if they do it's really half-hearted. There's like one cool house per suburb. Also, zero people carve pumpkins, and we don't really get Halloween-themed lollies or food, either. Wish I could experience an American Halloween."
