In a “We” cycle, like the one we’re in right now, people are naturally more curious about the small stuff in other people’s lives. Rather than focusing on the bigger flashy aspects of life that are more important in a “Me” cycle, it’s the little things that matter most for today’s generation. So it’s not surprising that this photography project has gone viral over the past two weeks, being featured everywhere from Time Magazine to The Daily Mail.

Check out this intriguing series by photographer Peter Menzel that reveals one week of groceries by families from around the world

Very intriguing, right? I was actually quite surprised by some of them too. Who knew that french baguettes were popular in China?

Are there any countries here that you were surprised by?
