Well ok, we all like our own sports. Oh no, I was wrong. Most of the world plays some hugely popular sports together and the USA sits with its back to the rest of us and won’t join in the fun. Why so insular, America? Live a little! American Candy Brands
See my comment about the cups. Try ours, different does not always equal bad. Even if you buy a European cell phone, it probably won’t work from country to country.

Ok, I’ll give you that one. Food Delivery. They never order pizza in Europe!
We have food delivered, don’t worry. Stores close early, and most don’t open at all on Sundays.
Seriously? Are you thinking of a different Europe? Bagels
They’re in the bread aisle. With the other bread. Has the writer of this… whatever it is… even leave the USA? Most of these ‘facts’ are demonstrably wrong.
