The Strangest Snack Foods From Around the World

One person's weird and another's delicious—expand your snacking horizons with haggis chips, crunchy mini crabs, and more.


The desire to snack is a basic human impulse, but not all cultures snack alike. In some countries, popular snacks might seem odd to Americans, even though we are the ones sprawled out on couches stuffing our faces with fake powdered cheese and pretzels that purport to taste like pepperoni pizza.

In order to achieve peak snacking prowess, you must broaden your cultural horizons and realize that beyond the shelves of Pringles and Corn Nuts, there's a whole world of salty, sweet, and crunchy treats out there to explore. From fermented shark meat to Marmite-flavored potato chips, we’ve got some snack-time game-changers that may just have you ditching your go-to Doritos in time for Super Bowl.

Check out some of the world's most weird and wonderful snacks.
