I came across this intriguing image while working on a paper describing American food habits.

Aggregating the behavior of 300+ million Americans leads to mind boggling numbers, of course. Dry grocery is where all the pasta, breakfast cereal, crackers, chips, and soft-drinks are, and that is where Americans like myself go to get fat on cheap calories.
