Americans taste and rate South African snacks

Americans taste and rate South African snacks

This was so interesting to watch. These guys tasted Lunch Bar, Ouma's Rusks, Simba Chips, and more and gave their honest opinions...

No matter where we go in the world, South Africa will always be home for us. 

You only truly realise how much you miss home and all the comforts that come with it when you are away from home. One of the things that can bring you comfort when being away from home is snacks. 

We came across a video of two American guys reviewing some very popular South African snacks. The video provided us with some nostalgia, but it also made us smile. 

Because with each snack or food item they reviewed, we all have a small story or memory attached to that snack. 

The Americans tasted everything from Ouma's Rusks to Simba chips; their opinions were interesting to note and we loved how they played around with the names of the items. 

Watch the video below. It is quite long, but it is worth the time with their entertaining reviews.

If you made it to the Fizzer and Bar One review, you have to admit that these guys are great entertainers. 

  • "This video just made me happy that Americans Trying South African Snacks" 
  • "I'm from South Africa but would not vote for the jelly tot chocolate bar! U need to try speckled eggs. Ouma Rusks must be dipped in coffee" 
  • "You telling me me that America doesn’t have simba chips😭where is ur childhood"
  • "People from SA laughing at how they say oum"
  • "To all the Americans out there trying the rusks... please for the love of all that is holy... please! Dip them in coffee or tea first!!!!" 

The end was on point with these American guys hitting the nail on the head: "Apparently South Africa knows how to party..."

No disputes there.
