How American Foods Look In Other Countries (21 PICS)

Posted in PICTURES       14 Sep 2020       2911       14 GALLERY VIEW

Solo cups (at least in the Netherlands) are sold as "American cups."

And Cool Ranch Doritos In Holland (and other parts of Europe) are called Cool American Doritos.

They changed the name because ranch dressing isn't as popular or well known outside of America.

 

Sour Patch Kids in France are called Very Bad Kids.

And the actual candies look different in Australia.

Rice Krispies go by Rice Bubbles in New Zealand (plus Australia and parts of Europe).

Meanwhile, these Pringles sold in China are tomato-flavored!

And these Pringles sold in Brazil are just plain hilarious.

Speaking of Pringles — they sell instant noodles in parts of Asia!

In Japan, Lipton Tea cartons are very eye-catching.

Some Pepsi bottles look pretty darn different in Japan too.

Oreo, you've done us dirty by selling these only in Asia.

Kraft mac 'n' cheese is called Kraft Dinner in Canada and features a fork on the box instead of a spoon.

Meanwhile, a bag of Ruffles in Mexico looks about the same until you find the hot sauce packet inside!

In China, Lay's Classic potato chips are called Lay's American Classic Flavor.

Frosted Flakes cereal sold in Europe looks almost the same...until you see it's called Frosties.

Axe body spray is called Lynx in Australia (for copyright reasons).

And Burger King there is called Hungry Jacks for the same reason.

In Canada, Smarties are called Rockets...but are otherwise exactly the same.

In Italy (and lots of other places around the world), Diet Coke is called Coca Cola Light.

In Europe, Budweiser is a different brand of beer — so you'll find American Budweiser sold as just Bud.

And lastly, one reason American foods look different in other countries is that they're grouped together on an "American Food Shelf."

Harty,

As an American, I can say you are correct. The quantity of obese people I see daily is disheartening.

Harty,

To be fair nearly all the food shown is snack food / candies, not really what meals are made of.

#1 Solo cup is a brand, not the type of cup. Like Kleenex is a brand of tissue not a type of tissue. American cups is just a off brand made by someone other than Solo cup company. The rest of the post are likely made by the same company that make the US counterpart.

Just tell me where I can find Count Chocula still. It's frustrating how it's just randomly available

#17 It's not actually Burger King. Burger King set up here in the early 2000's but failed.

As an American I wish we could get more European foods here than we do. Sick of all the contaminated cr#p from China. I wonder if the same items sold in Europe have different ingredients. Our corrupt FDA allows all kinds of nasty stuff that other countries have totally banned. American beer is disgusting.
