It was a great day for globalization in the Jiajiayue last night. I was shopping with Dorothy when we saw this:
It’s Snapple! In Yantai! You have no idea how this warmed my little expat heart. Yes, I know you can find Coke in every corner of the planet, but I don’t actually like Coke.
Seeing this Snapple is my own object lesson in globalization, because when I came to China, just under a year ago, there wasn’t any Snapple in the supermarket. Don’t worry, Western products haven’t changed taken over the market, the blood-tracked floor, chicken feet and so forth are still there.
Whenever I hear of China’s groing economy and all the rapid changes in China, I’ll think of Snapple, sold next to chicken feet, noodles and cocoons.
