The American shelf at the grocery store in Finland

The American shelf at the grocery store in Finland

Miriam wanted to try to get some root beer to stand in as butterbeer at her Harry Potter-themed birthday party this weekend, so we headed to K-Citymarket to see if they had any. Lidl and Prisma sometimes have random American products for sale, but K-Citymarket has the most consistently broad selection.

We didn't find root beer, but as long as we were standing in the American section of a Finnish grocery store, I thought I'd take a picture. Here is what gets sold as "American" here in Turku.

The prices are horrendous - the pumpkin cans are €5 each (...I bought four to stock up ahead of pumpkin bread season). But if you really, really need Pop Tarts or Swiss Miss or (*squints*) Gary Poppins Popcorn, K-Citymarket has you covered.
