If you had to live in another country, like Mexico and wanted a taste of the good ole U. S. of A; what would the American Aisle look like?

The "American" aisle here seems to rely mainly on nostalgia.

"The brands in the American section are instantly recognizable, like Betty Crocker, Pop-Tarts, and Hershey's.

The aisles are also usually decked out in American flags and bright, poppy neon imagery that entices shoppers to come over to see what all the commotion is about.

Which got me thinking about what the American aisle would look like if you lived in Juarez, Mexico.

Buckets and buckets of the colonel would be the only thing I want to see if I was living in Mexico.

Also, I'd want pasteurized milk, which I'm not sure it is in Mexico, either way, seeing it in a grocery store would be a HUGE relief!

Sometimes the ingredients for a dang good barbeque sauce are just too hard to find.  I would hope the American aisle would at least stock some 'Sweet Baby Rays.'

Nothing says America like a good old copy of Guns & Ammo.

If I saw one of these in another country, I would KNOW for a FACT that I was in the American section.

What other things would be in the American aisle?
