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

The Lidl   ' American '   McKennedy brand is total rubbish. It's about as American as Vladmir Putin is. TRUST ME, IT'S NOT EVEN WORTH TRYING IT!

Is that who makes the pickles and stuff?

I always get a kick out of it when I see their "American Milkshakes" and microwave burgers LOL

I absolutely love Lidl. I love their weekly sales and the middle isle? Don’t get me started, I could spend all day there. But the “American” week made me laugh. They sold Duff beer during their American week. I had to get one just to try it and show people back home. 😂 Isn’t this what Homer Simpson drinks?

I’d put up a pic but I can’t figure out how.

hahahahah i got the Duff beer as well. We got 2 so we could each try one. We didn't care for the taste so we binned one LOL but it was worth it as we needed to at least try it LOL

The center aisle though...HELLS YES. We got a rice cooker that works brilliantly for like a tenner or something ridiculously cheap. We've gotten tools from there. Never had any issues. The American week is my least favourite but I wonder if Asian people - for example - would feel the same during Asian week LOL

I got an air popcorn popper from Lidl which is ace. 

Ooh, Duff beer, I would have liked that for the giggle of it.

We definitely had a good laugh with the Duff Beer. I kept saying "DUFF MAN. CAN'T BREATH. OOOOH NO!" hahaha  But yeah, Lidl's home section is excellent and always decent quality from my personal experiences!
