What is in the jars?
Happy days for anyone after a big jar of pickled beetroot!
Just as a reminder, in the 50’s-70’s the Soviet economy was considered something so strong that people claimed it should be used as a model in the Western world. It was growing very quickly but the substance of the growth wasn’t sustainable.

In stark contrast to the American store Yeltsin visited two years earlier.
"In Yeltsin’s own autobiography, he wrote about the experience at Randall’s, which shattered his view of communism, according to pundits. Two years later, he left the Communist Party and began making reforms to turn the economic tide in Russia."
Edit: Added "American"
If you want to see more imagery like this, there’s a German movie called Goodbye Lenin that has a kid faking that the wall didn’t open for his mother because he didn’t think she could handle the changes after an accident.
I remember something like Spreewald Pickles being important to the story.
We should definitely try communism in America because it just hasn’t been done right yet. /s
See this, leftists? This is your future if your keep your shit up.
Those of you downvoting don’t like to hear the truth, do you?

This picture reeks of despair and discouragement.
Did the Soviets control what foreigners photographed as tightly as the North Koreans do now?
Like during the Cold War, could I, an American, just wander into a Soviet store and start taking pictures showing how bleak it is?
It’s not so bad. When your tasting metal all day you never get hungry.
