Hello! My name is Kristal, and I grew up in a small town in Texas where the only thing to do was play PacMan at the laundromat. Now, I live in Scotland! I hope this to be a fun, entertaining, and informative blog for my family, friends, and all you other people out there. Let the adventures begin.
UK vs. US product names you may be searching for in the grocery store
I was talking to my grandma on the phone today about recipes that I would be trying this week. We started laughing about the differences in names of UK and US products, so I thought it would be fun to post some of the items you may be looking for in grocery stores either as an American moving to the UK or as a UK citizen moving to the US. Some items may not be exactly the same, but are the "equivalent" of the product. Pictures are from the Wal-Mart, Tesco, and Sainsbury's websites.

Powdered Sugar vs. Icing Sugar
If you want bacon that is most common in the US, it is called "streaky bacon" in the UK. Otherwise, you get thicker slices in the UK that are similar to what Americans call "Canadian bacon."
