Must be expensive to eat there. A hyper ion would have a helluva charge.

The taste of most bread in the US is annoyingly sweet, to this Aussie’s taste.
Notable exception: Dave’s Killer Bread.

@Frank Burns

the Chinese text says “The bread will have a (very) pleasant taste after you heat it”.

The source of confusion for the translator are two things: 1) 食用 = “use for food/edible” (this is why “to eat the taste”), which is best left untranslated in English 2) 美 which means beautiful/pleasant but also may be short for 美国 “the US”. And since it is 美美 here (the Chinese just love reduplication), the US appears two times…

“Wonder Bread” is a famous brand of white bread in the U.S.A. So should I further explain?

@DNT….”The taste of most bread in the US is annoyingly sweet” So too was their beer – at least in “stubby” sized bottles. Never got to try their Draught Beer. Although that was 40 years ago Maybe things have changed. There was a hotel in Cairns, that used to cater to the likes of Lee Marvin, John Wayne, and a cluster of American millionaires, who used to come out for thee Marlin fishing in the mid 60s. That place used to keep a large collection of American beers and Bourbons. Believe it or not. Bourbon was rarely seen in Queensland… Read more »

@Marum: Luckily, my American friend has great taste in food., so the only domestic beers we drank were craft beers. Didn’t find anything better than we can get here in Oz.
She also warned me to avoid Wonder Bread (she was raised on it) and when we went out to Thanksgiving dinner: “Stay away from that f***ing candy corn!” (The damn stuff was EVERYWHERE!)
They do have a lot of good food in the USA, though; you need to know what you’re looking for.
