@JTompson,
I don't know about Russia, but when I've bought jeans, that say "made in Mexico", I usually end up with one pants leg about 5 inches longer than the other.

Same thing with shoes. Left and right feet never have the same size.

Back to the Russia issue. When I see the label, "Made in Russia" I think about the "cold war" and all the time kids spent hiding under their desks because they were told the Russians are attacking.

If you grew up in Chicago, on Tuesday AM at 10:30, the sirens warned everyone the Russians are coming...run for cover.

I bought a pocket watch once which was made in the Soviet Union. It was a piece of crap.

@JTompson,
Depends on the product.

Not so much re emotions.

Other than vodka and caviar, I can't think of a single thing I've ever seen labeled as being produced in Russia. OTOH, I agree with Miller (which may be a first). I spent way too much time under my school desk to choose a Russian made product over an American made one - except vodka and caviar, of course.

I don't come across products made in Russia. Everything seems to be made in China and that does cause me to feel a certain amount of annoyance.

Some of these imports don't make sense to me. For instance, I purchased some unsweetened apple juice, only to use as liquid for making baking apples, and I simply bought the least expensive bottle on the shelf. When I got home, I read the entire label and found it was made from apple concentrate imported from China. This was the first time I have ever seen a juice product labeled like that. Why on earth does apple juice distributed in the U.S. have to be made from concentrate imported from China? Don't we grow enough apples here? Is it really less expensive to import apple concentrate than to produce it domestically?

We have enough contamination in our domestically produced food items and I do not trust those items imported from China where health and regulatory standards may not be well enforced. I was angry at myself for not reading the label on the juice before I purchased it (something I almost always do), but I really never expected that particular item to contain imported ingredients. Had I known, I would not have purchased it.

I agree. Once I ordered a jar of Ovaltine online and after I received it, I checked out the country of origin. It was Ovaltine from Thailand. I threw the jar in the trash. Crying or Very sad

@JTompson,
I personally have never knowingly bought any products that were made in Russia. And as for awareness, other then perhaps the understanding that some kinds of Caviar and vodka are imported from Russia, I am not personally aware of any other available items for sale here in NYC.

On the other hand, I have frequented the Russian restaurant Uncle Vanya in west midtown of Manhattan and perhaps probably ingested several imported Russian products while there. Though I was under the impression (told by a friend) that the vodka was actually made there in NYC. It was one of their gimmicks.

My only misgivings (probably errant for the most part) about Russian products come from a mere inkling of Russian cars that came into my periphery via the occasional movie that incidentally featured the vehicle. They were tended to be portrayed as unreliable and lacking in any amenities beyond a basic car heater.

Miller? Have you really seen a "Made in Russia" on anything other then vodka or caviar for purchase here in the US?

Thanks for accidentally reminding me Set. I did in fact buy a so called Soviet Union pocket watch when I was stationed in Germany in 1990. It didn't last very long before the hands literally fell off the watch inside the watch face.

@Miller,
Clearly the original poster wasn't too passionate about her Russian marketing campaign in order to actually return to respond to our earnest responses. http://i52.tinypic.com/3354iro.jpg

I once bought a pocket watch made in Russia--it was a piece of ****, and broke down the first time i wound it. I took it back to the store, but they didn't like to do refunds, so they replaced the watch. The replacement was a piece of ****, too. This time, when i went back to the store, i raised holy living hell, and they gave me my money back.
