Pic dump di Milano: Gross Italian Food

No Comments Life in Italy, Lost in translation
Italian cream cheese

Barf.

Not all Italian food is good. Some of it can be quite revolting.

Take cream cheese for example. Cream cheese is only used in a few dishes in America, and it’s almost primarily used for breakfast, on bagels. That’s it.

In Italy, the Italians I know put cream cheese on EVERYTHING!

When I go to the sandwich shop with people at school, the Italians ask for “philadelphia” on their paninis, without fail. Why on earth would someone choose a Kraft cheese product when there is fresh mozzarella, gorgonzola, provolone, parmaggiano…. the list goes on.

The other gross thing about Italian cream cheese is that it comes in many strange flavors. Like these two shown here- tuna and ham. There is also olive and the brand-new chocolate flavored one. Healthy!

Anyway, I know I am super behind on my blog, but my thesis is due in two days, so this weak photo post will have to do for now. I’ll post something more significant next week… promise!
