You can find lots of bread marked "American" here: the square sliced white kind, hamburger buns, and hot dog buns. Germans think American bread is terrible. They're not wrong about that. But, American bread is not as terrible as the stuff marked American bread here!! I had a hankering for maidrites (that's my-corner-of-Iowa-ish for "sloppy joes") today and got the hamburger buns and was reminded again of what I already learned a few times. That bread is so light and dry it just falls apart if you put anything on it. Buns actually made in the US seem to be built to take the addition of meat and condiments a lot better!
