Though the size of these establishments are impressive already, they still can compare to some of our U.S. giants (Wal-Mart, anyone?). What simply blows my mind is the coices of food that Hungarian supermarkets carry. Whereas in my local Safeway, or Whole Foods Market in Kailua, Hawaii, there may be five different brands of sour cream to chose from, Auchan in Budaors, Hungary, has an entire isle of it. I can't even guess the number of brands. It would take me three hours just to look at each.
|The sour cream isle. Crazy, isn't it?|
|Looking for salami? Sliced or whole, you can find it here.|
Hungarian salami is quite possibly the best in the world.
|The sausage isle: not the same as the salami isle. Just the same size.|
|Butter and margarine- as far as the eye can see|
