Well here in Florida , USA  there is the $1 menu at most fast food restaurants and we also have $1 stores like Dollar Tree, Dollar General and .99 cent stores. The Taco Bell stores have quite a few menu items that are less than $1.  Other than the fast food not much you can buy for $1 dollar of much use or value. There are some strange differences thought. I do not understand why a bottle of water can cost more than a bottle of soda or Gatorade sport drink! Sometimes twice as much.

Since the USD to Yuan exchange is close to $7 Yuan  Please tell me what $7 Yuan can buy. I would like to see the comparison. Would especially like to know some examples of every day common items. Here in Orlando a 375ML Moutai costs $40us or almost 280 Yuan.
