Rants and raves about things that interest me

The comforting side of globalisation part 2

Posted by Mark Sztainbok on August 18, 2006

In my previous posting, I mentioned the comfort of having the same brands in the supermarkets over here as we do in Australia. Having had more of a wander around the supermarkets (having been at least once every day so far since we arrived in Seattle), I’ve noticed that sometimes the same products exist just under different brand names. Here is a list of some of the ones I’ve found so far (the list will increase as I find more):

Australian name US name Description
Finish Electrasol Dishwashing powder
SoftWash SoftSoap Hand wash
Rexona Degree Deodorant
Honda Acura Cars
Lynx Axe Deodorant
Preen Spray ‘n Wash Stain remover
