Here are some photos from the Hyper U in Sierentz, France, yesterday. It was a fun experience to explore the store and consider how we might do life here.
Apparently, at the Hyper U, you can buy eggs, bread, cheese, and, if you need them, lawn mowers. Even the riding kind.
I thought my dad would get a kick out of this–the French lawn mowers powered by American engines.
I had to share this one–it’s a push mower unlike any I’ve ever seen…a three-wheeler.
This is the only salsa we’ve seen here–Old El Paso brand. It kinda reminds me of the Pace Picante Sauce commercials from the 90s–This stuff’s made in New York City! (Well, actually, I think it’s made in Spain, but it certainly isn’t from Texas.)
This is what passes for “Mexican” food here–Old El Paso. I guess it’ll do in a pinch. I guess.
One of the things we wanted to verify at the stores was the availability of tea–the Hyper U had all the tea we could want.
We were super-excited to see that our preferred brand of curry pastes is readily available here.
We were equally pleased to find that we can get sesame oil as well.
This stuff LOOKS like Huy Fong Food’s Sriracha sauce, but there’s no cool rooster, and I think it’s made somewhere in Europe, not in LA. Someone should investigate this stuff further, methinks.
There are some things that will just take some getting used to–like buying your milk in an unrefrigerated state. That’s just so not-the-way-we-do-it.
Phoenix and Miranda picked up some baby oranges to share with friends.
My heart jumped for joy when we saw the cheese department. And this was only half of what was there. So many cheeses!
