The United States is well known to have a variety of junk foods that are chock full of fat, sugar, and sodium. From potato chips to soda, the popularity of American snack foods has spread around the world. This has resulted in some unique—and maybe sometimes a bit bizarre—flavors. While Americans obsess over flavors like barbecue and sour cream & onion, the rest of the world has gotten pretty creative with their own renditions of American snack foods. We’ve compiled a list of just some of the foreign flavors of American snack foods from around the world. (Caution: The following may seem strange to even the most adventurous snacker).
Japan seems to be a snacker’s paradise for unique Kit-Kat flavors ranging from blood orange to wasabi. Here are some other KitKat flavors that are sure to satisfy every snacker’s adventurous sweet-tooth:
- Strawberry (Japan)
- Green Tea (Japan)

The perfect combination of crunch and saltiness of potato chips is utter bliss. You really cannot go wrong with potato chips, or…can you?

- Red Caviar Lay’s (Russia)
- Dill Pickle (Canada)

Who doesn’t love Oreos? It’s America’s favorite cookie, and these countries certainly have done an awesome job with getting creative with them. I’d certainly love to try these out with a glass of cold milk:
- Orange Ice Cream (Indonesia)
- Green Tea Ice Cream (China)
- Dulce de Leche (Chile)
A lot of foreigners can’t seem to understand why Americans love Cool Ranch so much. With these unique flavors, it isn’t all that surprising why they wouldn’t be that psyched about ranch.

- Steak (Japan)
“Wanta Fanta, don’t you wanna?”
