Oh !  My God Story NO. 76

What's good in New York

I think that Japanese general merchandise and home appliances

are better than those made in America.
But there is something better in America.
One of them is found in the natural food.

In New York, you will find a lot of things which you don't find in Japan.
For example, ice cream made of soy milk.
It is very tasty.

Soy ice cream is almost as tasty as regular ice cream.
I haven't seen soy ice cream in Japanese natural food stores yet.
I'm surprised to see so many different kinds, about fifty, of soy milk.

You don't find cheese made of tofu in Japan
Americans eat hard tofu.
Imitation meat and milk have much better taste than Japanese ones.
These are all made of soybean.

There are many different kinds of natural juice and they are cheap, too.
The variety of non-oil food is wide.
New York is convenient for someone like me

who basically eats natural food.

America is a paradise for diet food lovers.
But there is a reason for that.

Do you know about this report?
The other day,

the annual national survey in the beginning of the year was announced.
America's number 1 wish for this year is diet.
The second is exercise.

It's true that a lot of Americans are overweight.
That's why diet food in America is advanced.

By the way, "Have you ever had non-oil cheese?"
I wouldn't recommend this.
Did you say, "How does it taste?"
In my opinion, it tastes like Okama who is a man without a masculine quality.

Oh !  My God.
