It’s Ba-a-a-a-a-ck! American Week at Lidl

It’s a sign from God. No sooner do we arrive back in France, when what do we receive in the mail? Longtime readers know: the Lidl circular featuring American Week!

Lidl 1

The cover – ‘Discover the taste of America’

We had some of your traditional favo(u)rites: peanuts, wraps and the American style snack box with mozzarella sticks, onion rings and chili cheese poppers.

Lidl 2

Seriously? ‘Potato Chips’ called ‘Crisps’? This is ‘America Week,’ not ‘British Week’. And what the hell are ‘Flips’?

And, of course, we have pizza and chicken strips and nuggets.

Lidl 3

At least they stuck with ‘frites,’ not ‘chips’. But c’mon: curry sauce with the nuggets and strips.

And, bien sur, everyone’s fave: hot dogs in a jar:

Lidl 4

You just know that the number of hot dogs and the number of buns don’t match.

And for the final highlights, we have faux Reese’s peanut butter cups, peanut butter and popcorn.

Lidl 5

Cokes I get, but teacakes?

There were also pancakes and brownies, cheesecakes and yogurt, milkshakes and bacon, and even more.

I figure the next American go-round will be 4-5 months. I’ll keep you posted.

    You should try the Carrefour in Pibrac. In the world food aisle, the section marked anglais, seems to contain a lot of US brands like Hersheys.

    No comment on the lack of French’s Mustard – or their lack faux version…
