Worse than Russian counterparts: 3 products that US immigrants do not like
Author of the channel "Americano" on "Yandex.Zen" has been living in the USA for several years and writes in his blog about the intricacies, pros and cons of local life. The author spoke about American goods, which, in his opinion, are worse than their Russian counterparts. Further - from the first person.
Canned Vegetables Made in USA
Alas, Americans do not make the best canned vegetables. At first I thought that I was just unlucky with the manufacturer, but over the course of several years in the USA, my girlfriend and I tried products of different brands, and now, if the package says Made in USA, we do not take such goods.
And this even applies to peas or corn - they are too boiled, soft, and if we talk about pickles, they are too bland.
I'll make a reservation that there are many imported products on the shelves in American stores. For example, you can eat canned Mexican vegetables, but there is another extreme - there are too many spices. We most often take European ones - they are more expensive, but the taste is much better.
Mayonnaise Made in USA
American mayonnaise is generally nothing, the taste is exactly the same as ours, but here is the consistency ... For about a year I got used to the fact that mayonnaise in the USA is too thin.
It probably sounds silly to you, but trust me - it's really hard to get used to. Perhaps we were just not very lucky, but again - it is the American brands that are liquid.
Drinking yoghurts and the like
Here again there are two extremes: either natural yoghurts are too bland, as if a couple of berries were thrown into a bottle of kefir, or too “chemical” - it tastes like chemistry.
Russian brands had delicious yoghurts, a middle ground between the two extremes listed above. There is no such thing in the USA. Most regular yogurts have the same problem.
Of course, you get used to it, but I did not say that because of this it is impossible to live in the USA. It’s just a fact that in Russia some products are much better than in America. And, of course, this is a matter of taste.
