So I was vastly interested in the one and only Dutch Supermarket I managed to visit in June. So much fascinating stuff.
Of course preprepared foods are taking over the world. And it's no different in Holland.
But naturally there are some local idioms.
Of course there were walls of cheese.
And other local specialities filling the shelves. The vlokken (pronounced something like flocker) section.

they're crazy for them
Bitter pudding, remained sadly untried.
The egg section made me gasp out loud! They had so many different sized cartons. 3. 4. 6. 7 I think (when do you need 7 eggs?). 9. And more. Such a simple idea! But so fantastic. Why do we only have 6 or 12? What if I want 9 eggs? Or 7?
We tried an intriguing local product, filet americain.
