In Amercia, we freeze all manner of food in ways God never intended them to be frozen. We also package things so that one buys more plastic and styrofoam than food. Not so in Italy, here frozen food is sold in bulk. It sits in little tubs in the freezer and waits for you to come buy and scoop it up. They do not just have the things one finds in the states, such as french fries or per-breaded chicken patties (or at least I hope that's chicken) they have all manner of mostly fresh seafood, such as these baby octopi.
