A Brit Tries American Candies, Snacks & Drinks (#Vlog 23)

After Chelsea tried traditional British snacks, sweets and foods – we thought it was only fair that Chris try some of their American counterparts. In this video, Chris eats a selection of American snacks, candies, drinks, cereals and more. Of course, because he has been to the USA on a few occasions, we specifically looked for items that he had not yet sampled.

While these may not be the most sterotypical American items for a Brit to try, they are all genuine reactions! Among the highlights are Twinkies, teryaki flavored jerky and Hot Tamales.

New American Tastes

I think it’s fair to say that although these were all very new to Chris – there were some he enjoyed, and some he was not as keen on. It definitely looks as though we’ll need to buy more jerky in the future, as that is one snack we both enjoy. But Chris didn’t like the chocolate donuts or Twinkies as much as I thought he might.

Trying new foods is always a fun experience, and through it we get to discover new tastes and might even surprise ourselves sometimes. Just like how Chris was surprised by the sherbert filling of a gobstopper.

What’s Next?

Although we have now filmed both myself and Chris trying foods from the US and UK – we know we have only scratched the surface of what is available. If you have any ideas for other American snacks or food items you think Chris should try, leave them in the comments below.

Also, let us know if there are any other videos you would like to see us film. We’re considering a few others at the moment that include: a blind taste test (to see if we can guess which country each food item is from), trying new fast food chains and more!
