Anyone feeling patriotic? (Or: A box of cupcakes)

Check out these red, white and blue cupcakes which I spotted at an expat store in the Mall of The Netherlands (yes, NL jumped on the bandwagon as every time I hear of the name I think of the Mall of America).

Sometimes with overly American branding I have to wonder if it was actually produced in the US or not. Companies make something that sounds American, they put an American flag on it and brand it American. But if you look closely you will see it was made in Europe.

And check out that price. €9,99 or $11.20. For 8 cupcakes!

Another thing that is very expensive here is a box of Cheerios. Those are also about €10 each, unfortunately.
