I live in Malaysia and I think Americans are so lucky! We have some American products sold here and they insanely expensive! But to Americans, these same products are cheap and affordable!
In particular, is the fancy popcorn sold in Candylicious, a candy store with mostly American candy. A little bag of popcorn costs like RM16 to RM19! I'll bet in America, a large bag will be like USD5 or something?
I've been to Australia and I know you can get a huge bag of potato chips for like AUD2.99 or something! In Malaysia, the same bag of chips can be like RM13.99!
But maybe I'm just dreaming of things I shouldn't eat. When I was living in Australia, I was fat from eating so much of these cheap chips etc. Maybe Americans wouldn't have an obesity problem if they didn't have such tempting, cheap junk in aisles and aisles in the supermarket. But still, sometimes, I wish I was an American!
