10. Bamba – Israel
From Israel comes these peanut buttery puffs. It’s basically a Cheez Doodle, but it has a richer flavor and texture.
It’s super addicting so be careful, but you can buy them on amazon here.
9. O!Karto (오감자) – South Korea
These little tube shaped chips are ridiculously addictive. They’re spicy, sweet, crunchy and oh my goodness we need to go get some now. Maybe if you’re in South Korea, you should pick them up! They’re also found at most Korean super markets.
Or you can just snatch them up on amazon right here!
8. Takis – Mexico
This little treats have found their way to the United States (thankfully). It’s a hard version of Cheetos essentially, but it’s so much more. It’s a bit spicier and a bit harder in texture. It’s quite confusing on why it’s so good, but you definitely need to try it!

7. Biltong – South Africa
Biltong is basically a beef jerky. One difference is that it is dried instead of smoked (like the US version). Beef is probably the most popular meat to use when making biltong, but especially in South Africa, it’s made out of almost any delicious animal. It’s popularity is increasing so you may even be able to find it in your country!
Luckily, Amazon.com is the home of almost any international food. Get it here!
6. Kinder Surprise Eggs – Italy
What makes this delicious little egg awesome is not in its flavor (but it is deliciously great), but rather in the little toy that comes in the center of the egg! Although it was banned for the US and then subsequently kinda lifted, if you’re in Europe, you definitely know what this chocolate egg is and probably grew up on it!
5. Korean Smash Noodle Snack – South Korea
It’s the second Korean snack on this list (and not the last), but this snack is on here because it’s pretty unique! Have you ever tried ramen? Well, this snack is based off instant ramen noodles. You poor the flavor powder (spicy, korean bbq, etc.) and break up the pieces! It’s truly awesome and a unique experience in the world of snacking!
Get it on amazon here!
4. Hit – Iceland
Iceland is not really known for much, but there is one candy bar they make that may put other bars to shame. It’s a chocolate covered licorice stick that is covered in caramel inside. It’s sweet, salty and just all around awesome.
3. Smash – Norway
If you’re an American, you know bugles. Well, these are similar and covered in chocolate. Put these little bad boys on your fingers and feast!
2. Koala Cookies – Japan
Japan found out that kids love cute stuff. Koalas are super cute. So what they did was make little cookies that look like koalas and stuff them with chocolate. We’re happy to report that yes, these are friggin delicious!
