I've never eaten marshmallow fluff.

and the last time I had marshmallows involved a campfire longer ago than I can remember. (unless you count Peeps, because I did eat a few of those last Easter during the great Peeps massacre of 2016)

Also, in addition to the whole based on gas stations/convenience stores rather than actual grocery stores, there's also a lot of general food that I imagine is the same from country to country and won't be specifically in the "American" section or sorted by items rather than country.
Most grocery stores I go in that have sections dedicated to "ethnic" food generally have some overlap in other sections or the "ethnic" is group based on a primary item (like Italian gets in with general pasta which also is where the raman noodles are, boxed food like Hamburger Helper overlaps with taco kits, which leads to the Mexican food and on and on) while the aisle that does really specific "THIS IS ETHNIC FOODZ!!!1!" will only have imported items and such.

I was shocked by the candy mostly. I figured m&m's were pretty global. Along with the soda.
I thought the only place you could not get a coke was North korea.

I always put it in my chili. I just assumed everyone did.  Huh?

But not in your cornbread?

Hmmm . . . at least they seem to know even most Americans won't eat Spam.

The British foods is HP sauce and canned pudding.

The water to boil all other flavoring out of your food is on another aisle.

The Brits just copied that from the French.  British food isn't know to be flavorful, though they are improving.

At least they put some flavor in Chicken Tikka Masala.

what I think of the representative food of most countries is even less complimentary than the examples shown of American foods.

Interestingly, most authentic Japanese food is also very bland.

That's why they have all the dipping sauces. (WASABI!, for example.)

Rice, different rice for variety, seaweed and a little fish.  Ya think that could be a bit bland?

Or, if it's too bland, they add more tentacles.

Quote still no work for me.

You've never been to Japan, have you?  Lots more variety than that.  Beef, pork, chicken, many different vegetables including a lot we don't have here in the US.  Some very interesting and tasty marinades for meat dishes.  Lots more that could be listed.
In all my trips there, I never had a meal in Japan that was boring or bad.

As John Cleese said, the reason British food sucks so much is because they had an empire to run.

Then you didn't eat traditional Japanese food. Get a bento box? Eat at someone's home?

What they have in restaurants is as representative as going to Texas Roadhouse and thinking that's what most Americans eat all the time.

Their staples are exactly what KD5NRH said + Miso soup.

Mind you, I love Miso soup, but it's not exactly bursting with flavor.

This, and same with the Brits: beef wellington isn't exactly what working class folks whip up for dinner every night.

(Though I do wish HEB would stock some mochigome.  Six shelves of long grain rice varieties, and a small rack of Asian food including nori, but nothing right to wrap it around.  WalMart isn't likely to be any better, and Big Lots is always hit and miss.)

Actually, yes I did eat traditional Japanese food many times.  Fine dining establishments, akachochin hole-in-the-wall places, and izakaya style restaurants. Cheap and high tone sushi restaurants.  Places that specialized in okonomiyaki and little else.  Bento boxes, factory cafeteria food, onigiri and other grab and go from mini-marts.  Take home from department store basement shops.
And meals at my coworkers homes.  I experienced the gamut of food variety and choices the many times I went to Japan.  It's not all fish, seaweed and rice.  Far from it.
