American Store in Amsterdam

1x1.trans American Store in AmsterdamDuring my recent trip to Amsterdam, I walked past the most interesting store. It specializes in British and American goods. Being American, I was instantly intrigued to see what they sold. Sadly, it was mostly junk food. Among the items sold were:

Surely, there must be something better than this to represent the United States abroad. I will leave Amsterdam hoping that the US food companies of the future work towards making a better food reputation for the US.
