Okay so I’m French and listening to Waypoint Radio and there are a lot of food references I don’t get.
I love junk food, sweets and cakes so I’m of course curious to what you guys have around your parts.
So I’d like to know, according to you, what are the most basic brands of industrial cakes, something that everyone knows and has eaten at least once because it’s such an institution and a part of everyone’s routine.
In France I think those would be BN : https://www.episaveurs.fr/sites/episaveurs/files/styles/push_product_and_recipe/public/2020-09/Produits/produits-bn-gout-chocolat-en-paquet-295-g-bn-0001130.jpg?itok=f4i4p47G
Or other brands of chocolate biscuits such as Prince (https://images.sweetauthoring.com/product/84313.jpg) or Pépito, which is a very cringy representation of Latinx people (https://www.monoprix.fr/assets/images/grocery/3072895/580x580.jpg?impolicy=High_Grocery)
Those would be the most basic stuff, nonwithstanding cheaper versions that some might buy to save money.
Is it the same kind of biscuits with a chocolate blanket or filling that are the most common types of grocery store cakes you could find in the U.S ?
Maybe it’s not the same thing according to the State you live in ?
Hope you can shed some light on this, we might start a comparative anthropological research on groceries while comparing experiences, and I think that’s as useless as it is awesome.
