I'm quite certain that the American product that I see with the most frequency throughout Europe is Tabasco sauce. That's besides Coca-Cola and the ubiquitous product that is the American entertainment industry, of course. The little red, green and white bottle: Tobasco, it is everywhere I go. The very common little bottle that is in the pantry of every Louisianian I know and on the table of every restaurant I've visited in Louisiana -- it's in LOTS of other places as well.
Tabasco / 60 ml / Super A&O / Longare, Italy / January 24, 2013
Since I've taken note of it some years ago, I've felt this strong (albeit silly) desire to document it...I know, I know. BUT...this is my blog and if I feel inspired to start of collection of Tabasco spottings, well, so be it. I don't blame you if this leads you to finally break ties with me once and for all!
I hope to provide photographic evidence of the little red bottle, starting with the photo above which was taken at a grocery store near my home in northern Italy. There it sits right between soy sauce and salmon pate'.
