If you've ever wondered what the "American food" section of other countries' grocery stores looks like, the answer is basically this:

It's pretty much just an endless supply of Pop-Tarts, Jello, ranch dressing, and (for some reason) cooking spray.

But, our American delicacies can come with a rather hefty price tag, as I recently discovered during a trip to KaDeWe, a famous department store in Berlin. Can you guess how much these things cost?

the American food section at KaDeWe (a department store in Berlin) is really special

(Note that 1 Euro = 1.17 US Dollars.)
