USUAL PRODUCTS NEAPOLITANS BUY

Published January 31, 2013 by Tony

SOME PRODUCT FAMILY BUY IN NAPLES

In supermarkets all of us always look at other’s carts to see which products have been chosen. It is a legitimate curiosity that increases towards people who live in other countries as we wonder what brands or types of products they usually are using. It certainly is interesting to see if in other countries on the shelves there are products of the same brands that we find here. This curiosity will be yours too, and I hope it will be satisfied by this short series of products that a common Neapolitan family usual buy in a supermarket in Naples.
Although many of the everyday products we buy, are manufactured by European or international brands, some are produced by Italian companies, probably unknown to you. Anyway, in typology order I’ll mention the most used/known articles. Needless to say, every family is looking for special offers and promotions, and here most supermarkets or malls periodically prepares advertising leaflets, publicizing prices and current offers that we then find in our postbox. It was to be expected that some American big brands, about foodstuff and healthcare, prevail, as French for cosmetics products and Italian for some specific product.
