Everyone Loves New York
Sadly (or not—being destitute sucks) I have a day job, hence little time to attend to breaking news like McDonald’s Germany producing a line of cupcakes named after NYC neighborhoods.
Frankly, I was more interested in Tapei’s Neihu district Costco, the second most profitable store in the Washington state-based chain (the highest grossing is in South Korea).
There a few nods to local tastes like peking duck pizza in the food court and packaged meats being sliced thinly for hot pot usage, but bagels made from dough shipped from NYC are the most popular bakery item. How many bagels are sold each week? 54,000.
