Watch Koreans Try American Snacks For The First Time

koreans-tasting-snacks

It might be hard for Americans to believe that anyone in the world wouldn’t enjoy a Twizzler or Pop-Tart. That is until these artificially-colored and flavored foodstuffs are presented to those of a completely different food culture, with an uncorrupted palate.

Watch as a few Korean females, having never gazed upon anything even resembling a Cheez-It, cringe and gag their way through a series of American snacks.

Oh, and the consensus on Twizzlers and Pop-Tarts… They both suck hard. Please watch this…

Guinness Potato Chips Are A Thing

There are few things more synonymous with Ireland than Guinness and potatoes. British chip-maker Burt’s knows this, and has created the ultimate Irish bar snack with Guinness Potato Chips.

The chips contain the bittersweet flavor of Guinness Stout, as well as the salty starchy goodness of thick-cut and hand-cooked chips. The chips are available in Original Guinness Flavor and Rich Beef Chilli. Chilli’s very Irish too.

Homer Simpson Statue Made From Junk Food

Whether picking up a six-pack of Duff, or looking for something in an ‘after-dinner burrito,’ Homer Simpson usually finds what he’s looking for at the Kwik-E-Mart.

So, if you’re going to create a food statue of the Simpson’s patriarch, it should consist of the kinds of stuff you’d find at Apu’s convenience store.

Brought to us by Mandatory.com, the tribute to Homer is made from mini powdered doughnuts, marshmallows, vanilla meringues, black licorice, melted taffy, various forms of gummies, and cotton candy. Mmm… Statuey.

Models Covered in Sweets Test The Boundaries of What’s Sexy and Hunger-Inducing

Attractive and well-lit models always make for a successful photo shoot. As does some yummy food, styled to perfection. But when combining the two… how far can this be taken before your photos are void of sexuality and no longer make the viewer hungry?

Photographer Keith Allen Phillips recently tested these boundaries, with Messy — a photo series that merges the inherent sexuality of an attractive model with some well-placed junk foods.

By combining the two — in some cases making the models unrecognizable — we’re left to wonder if this series is still sexy, hunger-inducing, or just plain gratuitous. Thoughts?

The Snackpack is a Backpack Made Entirely of Junk Food

If the kids are looking for a delicious new backpack, the concept of the Snackpack is here to help.

Created by food-blogger Christina Guan, the yummy carrying apparatus is created entirely with junk food. Even the straps, which are fruit chews taped together.

It will certainly help keep the kids from getting hungry during the day. Although, it might encourage them to wear their backpack backwards.
