Watch These Brits Try American Snacks For The First Time

A team of unsuspecting Brits got a taste of Murica when they were offered the chance to try delicious snacks they may not have been as familiar with. Their European palettes proved no match for truth, justice, and the American way. Seriously though, I took my patriotism way too seriously watching this video. With every negative response I felt compelled to beat my chest singing "God Bless The USA", and remind them that we won the war on freedom!

To be honest, these Euro-Buzzfeed opinions could’ve been that of Americans and I think I would’ve been absolutely fine with it. When foreigners get all pompous in a froofy accent while discussing the contents of a Slim Jim, however, you best believe I’m going to snap into one and go Macho Man on you. Ohhhh Yeah! Sure, Slim Jims don’t really have a distinct taste besides stringy meat paste and spice. Do they kind of smell like a dude that forgot to put on deodorant after a long day? Of course they do, but that doesn’t give a nation that invented broiled chicken the right to look down on us!

Then they are choking down Warheads like that’s a difficult task! Let’s be clear about one thing, Warheads today are nothing like they were back in the day. I had one recently and either I ate so many Black Cherry flavored ones in 99’ I fried my taste buds or there has been a wussification of the best candy of the 90’s. Also sorry to disappoint you in saying this, but Warheads candy was actually invented in Taiwan in 1975 and is manufactured in Australia. I’ll keep the secret though if you will!.

Not even the dry sarcasm and wit of the British empire could stand against the deliciousness of a Twinkie. There was that one guy who was like “the inside is disgusting” but then when it cuts to him to say “the Americans can have this", the Twinkie is all gone. So, yeah. He clearly ate it. The most unforgivable offense in my mind is someone slamming fruit Gushers. I have never met anyone on this planet who told me they didn’t care for that sweet gooey center of satisfaction, yet God save the Queen, I heard it today. Shame on you Britain, and I thought you were cool for giving us James Bond and Doctor Who.
