I wrote about a 2011 visit to Berlin's famous department store, KaDeWe, and the expensive American food I saw there. This past August, I went back to KaDeWe with another student during a history of Berlin class we were taking in Berlin. S. graciously gave me the following pictures that she took to illustrate the sticker shock on American products.
Betty! You are one expensive lass. Well, your brownies are at almost 7 euros per box!
Pop Tarts, as expensive as ever, or even more so! They're almost 9 euros per box.
Off-brand mac n' cheese and it's almost 4 euros? Seriously? This would sell for less than $1 in the US.
Jif for 7.98 euros. It is $2.78 in the US.
I'm soooooo curious: does anyone pay these prices at KDW?
