When I was a kid, call it 40 years ago, the amazing variety of food now available everywhere was…less available. For example, I remember when fresh coconuts started being sold in the grocery store. And when a specialty coffee shop opened selling imported coffee beans. And that arugula was just not around at all.
I’m speaking about the US here and I know experiences will differ, but curious to hear about other foods that are now commonplace but were once exotic to you.
