I'm from America and I can't get past these wild culture shocks at Australian supermarkets: 'Oh my lord'

An American traveller revealed her shock after visiting Woolworths READ MORE: Aussie shocked to find tax agent and guns in US supermarket

An American traveller has caused a stir with her 'hilarious' reaction to a Melbourne supermarket.

Tiffany Chen recently posted a video about the 'shocking things' she encountered at Woolworths including six different Tim Tim flavours, a lack of kangaroo meat in the deli, and 'strange' brands she'd never heard of.

'I've only ever seen one flavour of Tim Tam,' she said. 'There's such a variety of Vegemite - they also have gluten free and less salt!'

Tiffany was surprised when she went to the deli section and couldn't find any kangaroo meat - but that wasn't the most upsetting part of her grocery store visit.

'Oh my lord, the eggs are not in a fridge!' she exclaimed after discovering the egg aisle. 'They're just sitting her on a shelf.'

Australian food and safety regulations state that eggs do not need to be refrigerated because they are not pasteurised, unlike in America.

Eggs in New Zealand also do not need to be refrigerated.

A Woolworths staff member also commented and revealed that all stores do not sell kangaroo meat, but that it is usually placed by the chicken.

Tiffany was also befuddled by the chips aisle.

'The Cheetos come in balls? What are Twisties? Smiths? Cheezels? Is it like Cheez-Its and weasels?' she asked.

She also claimed Australia's packet mac and cheese was the 'first time she's seen mac and cheese she doesn't want to eat'.

'I've never seen these brands [of toilet paper] in my life - except for Kleenex,' she said, walking down the toiletry aisle.

The traveller was also shocked by the size of avocados and bananas, claiming they were 'much bigger' than the fruit she's seen in California.

Many Australians didn't appreciate Tiffany's jabs.

'At least the tax is included in the price,' one said.

'You're freaking out over six Tim Tam flavours when you have aisles full of different cereals,' another added.

'You know what I don't get as an Aussie ... creamer. Why don't you just use milk?' a man asked.

'It's almost like a different country will have different brands and food,' a woman wrote. 'It shouldn't be shocking.'
