1. Pocky (Japan)

These chocolate covered cookie sticks come in an assortment of flavors and are as addicting as they look.

2. Taki’s (Mexico)

Spicier than any chip manufactured in the US, this snack is not for the faint-hearted. Only try this if you love the burn of hot chilis.

3. McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes (U.K., Ireland)

This snack is a sponge cake topped with chocolate and filled with orange cream – perfect for all the sweet teeth out there!

4. Smash! (Norway)

If you love a sweet and salty combination, then Smash is the snack for you. The salty, cone shaped chips are coated with creamy chocolate.

5. Speculoos Paste (Belgium)

Cookie Butter!!! YUM! Spread it on toast, dip a cracker, or just grab a spoon and dive in to this creamy goodness.

6. Alfajores (Argentina)

These cookies, an Argentine tradition, are made of two delicate biscuits filled with creamy dulce de leche. They often come coated in coconut or chocolate.

7. Mackies of Scotland Haggis & Cracked Black Pepper Potato Chips (Scotland)

Once you eat one of these potato crisps (not chips. there’s a difference) you’ll be in love. These naturally made crisps are a salty snacker’s dream come true.

8. Bissli Falafel (Isreal)


If you have ever tried Cheetos, you’ll find that the texture of this snack is similar. The added bonus: it tastes like falafel instead of fake cheese.

9. Stroopwafels (Netherlands)

The perfect stroopwafel is made with two waffle thins filled with a creamy, buttery, vanilla syrup. Sign me up!

10. Nutella (USA)

Here it is – America’s current favorite obsession. This chocolate hazelnut spread is used on pretty much any edible substance we can find. Yeah, it’s that good.
