Ah, the American grocery store.  It can be a monster that goes on for days, or it can be small and quite sad.  It really depends on where you live.  America is a big place after all.  One thing that is true of all American grocery stores, however, is that we do not call our baskets trollies.  Ever.  And while stores can vary depending on where in the U.S. you are, they are more alike than not, and more different than Britain and Europe.  But what exactly are those differences?  What's up with all the balloons hanging from the ceiling in the floral department, Dominic wonders.  And why are there so many tortillas?  We attempt to answer these questions and more in this episode.  Have a listen and then let us know other differences you've noticed between American and British supermarkets.
