Hmm, what happened here?

From my old post Product Placement, a box of horrible "American" pizza from Lidl in January:


And from this week:



Looks like someone out there didn't appreaciate their smearing of the good name of, uh...McKennedy.

In other news I'm back in the land of the living after four days absorbing more epidemiology from 9-7 every day. Kind of like trying to take a sip of water from a fire hose.

  1. Wow! Is the bread portion as thick as it looks in the picture?

  3. Mary, it is! I think that's what is supposed to be "American" about it (inspired by Pizza Hut pan pizza, maybe?). It's kind of nasty.

    Ian, Germans, apparently...I've seen it on pizza delivery menus too. It's definitely not done in the US!

  4. Nah, it's from Lidl. They probably printed the boxes wrong and figured to heck with it and used them anyway. I hate the "American" products. Most are just nasty. No wonder Germans think we all eat disgusting junk food 24/7. And there is often a wide chasm between what is American and what they THINK is American. I love the hot dog bun packages at Rewe on the bread aisle. They say "6 Hot Dogs". Really? There's meat in there??!

  5. Debbie, the same is probably true for what Americans think is food from other countries!
    My husband got the "American Way" mac & cheese the other day. We haven't tried it. I really miss my Annie's mac & cheese so I'm desperate...

  6. That would be the Irish-American style of Pizza, no? I love (actually I hate it, but am amused by) the local "Pizza Hawaii," which is a ghastly concoction with Ham and Pineapple. Maybe I'm just homesick for Pal Joey's or Ray Bari's.

  7. Mike, you can get Hawaiian pizza in the US too, with canadian bacon! I actually like it but my husband makes fun of me for this. I never thought I'd like pineapple on a pizza, but then...well, it happened.

  8. all of you are part of the ''anti-americanism'', germans and americans have a lot of things in common, germans are the largest ancestry group in US, so you don't have reasons to be ''anti-americans'', and I am a german from Berlin

  9. Anon: No anti-Americanism here; I'd have to be anti-myself. :) We're just making fun of Lidl's strange interpretation of "American" foods!!
