Are they good?  No sugar?  Now I want a burger!

(Why is America Week at the end of January/early February?  Shouldn't it be the first week of July when we want to barbecue and roast marshmallows?)

I've never been to a Lidl, and I don't even know if there's one near me, but those marshmallows are begging to be made into Krispie treats...

Unfortunately, Lidl's "American week" tends to be about what you'd expect of a German supermarket in the UK. "Hot dogs" in jars and made of pork. "Dill" pickles with sugar, etc. The marshmallows do look promising, though... those weren't there the last time I braved Lidl's American food.

This line made me laugh aloud. Thanks, historyenne!  :)

For some reason I wasn't update that there were comments so only just seeing this now! haha Every so often they throw in a new random "American thing" - some of which don't look to bad - and I get excited but yeah...I always get a kick out of American week because it's hardly what I would think of as American.

They have new themed weeks (some better than others) every week so American week comes up a fair amount...but the stereotypes of what they think is American can be hilariously insulting.

Lidl might not be so great for American food, but I really like it for European food.  Yogurt and cheeses and most other things are usually better in German versions than UK version. They also have a really good in store bakery. 

Those giant marshmallows are good for roasting on a fire, but they are really big for anything else.

I can rarely ever go into Lidl and not leaved with some type of baked good....You walk in and it just smells like a little piece of heaven from all the fresh bread/bakery items.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Lidl. It's just the American stuff I find hilarious. I fine that certain weeks I have to stock up on stuff more than others haha. Asian week is a big hit in our home. I liked getting tapas stuff during Spanish week mainly because the little ceramic pots alone were worth it hahaha
