Last time round we looked at what Americans think about Japanese snacks, this time round, we have American, British and Australian goodies!

How do you think they would react?

bland -- (adj)  usually disapproving not having a strong taste or character or not showing any interest or energy
pop the cherry -- to lose one's virginity, used as a metaphor in the above video to mean, "trying certain food for the first time".
fuss -- (n) [S or U] a show of anger, worry, lack of satisfaction or excitement, usually one which is greater than the situation deserves

rancid -- (adj) (of butter, oil, etc.) tasting or smelling unpleasant because not fresh

cinnamony -- (adj) taste like cinnamon

ranch -- (n)[U] refers to ranch dressing -- A condiment made of buttermilk or sour cream, mayonnaise, minced green onion, garlic powder, and other seasonings mixed into a sauce.

Never thought their preferences can be so different right? Wanna have some of those now?
