A few things on the list:
1. "Quality of Chocolates": I'd urge anyone NOT to buy Hershey chocolate. Yes, we have great chocolate here. It's just usually sold at chocolate/candy stores, and is usually quite expensive. *resists urge to go down to the local chocolate store and buy a pound of fudge*
2. "Monotonous Cities, cookie-cutter homes": The cities are not monotonous. To me, Boston looks nothing like NYC, San Francisco, or Chicago. I guess if you aren't from around here, then they could all look the same...I suppose. Also, the homes...again, it depends where you go. Where I live, we have a large variety of styles of homes.
3. Jaywalking: It depends where you live.
