Top 10 American Snacks you should try!

Are you a foodie too? Then this would surely help you out try some amazing things out there. American snacks have been widely and most consumed snacks all over. Are they healthy? Now that’s a whole new topic. But these snacks might even change your tastes and choices. So let’s get to the list.

1.M&M’s

M&M’s are multi-colored button-shaped chocolates, each of which has the letter “m” printed in lower case in white on one side. Does is sound any similar? Yes, I would say it is somewhat similar to cadbury gems but its taste varies in wide range. When you first taste, it might be like ‘what’s so great about it?’  but you might even eventually get addicted. This is one of a favorite pocket snack for many people.

From peanut M&M’s to M&M’s minis and every flavor in between, this treat is one of the most iconic snacks out there. It’s no surprise these little balls of chocolatey goodness topped YouGov’s list!
Six varieties (milk chocolate, strawberry, crispy, hazelnut, crispy mint and almond) are available.
Also in 2017, Caramel M&M’s were released in the United States. In 2019, the M&M’s flavor vote cast three new flavors: English Toffee, Mexican Jalapeño, and Thai Coconut, with English Toffee winning.

2. Dr.Pepper

Big Fan of beverages? Then here is one of the most popular beverage in America. ‘Dr.Pepper’ Never heard of it? 
There are many people who would go crazy for Dr.Pepper. Well, not exactly crazy… You know what I’m talking about!
“This soda makes me enjoy my food so much. I love the taste to it it’s just so great in flavor. If you tried it, u would recommend to others to try it out.” claims a fan.

Dr Pepper is a carbonated soft drink. It was created in the 1880s by pharmacist Charles Alderton in Waco, Texas, and first served around 1885.The soda markets itself as a “unique blend of 23 flavors.” Superfans speculate that these are amaretto, almond, blackberry, black licorice, caramel, carrot, clove, cherry, cola, ginger, juniper, lemon, molasses, nutmeg, orange, prune, plum, pepper, root beer, rum, raspberry, tomato and vanilla.

This beverage has a deep, bold flavor. With a variety of fruit and spice flavors added, I’d say you can detect cherry and vanilla notes in it. However, the overwhelming taste impression is of sugar syrup. A lot of folks contend that Dr Pepper is like Coke, but spicier. When we say spicier, we don’t mean hot, we mean sharper with a richer diversity of spices. 

A fun fact.. Can you imagine? THERE’S A DR PEPPER MUSEUM.

3.Pringles

Now imagine, you are binge watching at home… and you get hungry for some spicy and crispy! then this is one goog choice that I would personally recommend! The quantity you get is great and bulky! and the taste… that you should try!

“I do not even need to explain how good Pringles is…it is really crispy and yummy!it has no cons in my opinion.. U can get it both online and from local grocery store.. It is really inexpensive and of course super tasty” a fan tweeted.

Pringles is an American brand of stackable potato-based chips. Originally developed by Procter & Gamble (P&G) in 1967 and marketed as “Pringle’s Newfangled Potato Chips”. As of 2011, Pringles were sold in more than 140 countries. In 2012, Pringles were the fourth most popular snack brand after Lay’s, Doritos and Cheetos (all manufactured by Frito-Lay), with 2.2% market share globally.

4.Reese’s peanut butter cups

The classic combination of chocolate and peanut butter, REESE’S Peanut Butter Cups are the perfect companion for movies, sports and parties. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are an American candy consisting of a chocolate cup filled with peanut cream, marketed by The Hershey Company. They were created by H. B. Reese.

This cup gained high marks because it was exactly what testers were craving. And you all know what a good Reese’s tastes like: sweet, sweet milk chocolate with satisfying peanut butter filling. While these cups really hit the spot, that slightly flawed filling is what cost it the crown.
“Reese’s PB cups are my all-time favourite chocolate bars, followed closely by Coffee Crisp. Peanut butter + chocolate = divine. Peanut butter + chocolate + ice cream = HEAVENLY PERFECTION.” fans shared.

In addition to the Peanut Butter Lovers cup, Reese’s will be releasing a Chocolate Lovers Cup that has a thicker chocolate shell made of a richer milk chocolate.

5.Cheetos

This is one of the most famous and the one which many of us have heard and tasted. One bite into that crispy, cheesy goodness and your tastebuds will transport you to salty-snack paradise. 
Cheetos (formerly styled as Chee-tos until 1998) is a brand of snacks made by Frito-Lay, a subsidiary of PepsiCo. Fritos creator Charles Elmer Doolin invented Cheetos in 1948, and began national distribution in the U.S.

They taste like cheese puffs, except a little bit cheesier. Their is the puff version which is lighter and airier and the crunchy version which is a bit harder and louder. Can you even imagine there are 111 types of cheetos available ! Some of the top flavours are CHEETOS Crunchy Cheese, CHEETOS Puffs Cheese, CHEETOS Crunchy Cheddar Jalapeno, CHEETOS Crunchy FLAMIN’ HOT Cheese and so on…

6.Twizzlers

Twizzlers is the product of Y&S Candies, Inc., of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Twizzlers were first produced in 1929 by Young and Smylie as the company was then called. 70% of the annual production of Twizzlers are strawberry, which is the favorite Twizzlers flavor. Twizzlers come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Twizzlers come in many many flavours and types.. not only single flavoured products but some packs come in mixed flavours making the product more mysterious and tasty. 

Twizzlers feels a lot like licorice in its texture, firm yet chewy to bite, hard to the touch, and rough in its consistency.
Twizzlers is a decent candy to munch on when you want a snack to eat. Chewing it is enjoyable, and it takes awhile, so having a mild flavor is not such a bad thing when the candy is in your mouth being chewed over a long period of time.
The roughness of the twists in the “Strawberry Twists” version of Twizzlers adds a tactile experience to eating it, and makes it a better one.

Twizzlers is not a snack you take 2 bites out of, gulp right down, and forget about. Rather this product asks you to take your time with it, feel its texture as you chew it, and lets you really notice what you are eating.
Overall, Twizzlers strawberry flavored twists gives you a mild tasting snack, that is enjoyable and lasts you a long time, and is good for filling you up when hungry or lasting you though a solid portion of a movie.

7.Doritos

Doritos taste delicious either way, but let’s be honest: they’re famous because of their color. Licking the shocking orange powder off of your fingers is all part of the Doritos experience. Although it’s said that Doritos would taste the same without the powder, they just wouldn’t be the same. Its strong corn flavor, with just a dusting of taco seasoning, make them a more interesting alternative to your standard tortilla or corn dippers for salsa, queso, or guacamole. These chips have a nice, very slight spice that makes them easy to enjoy without overwhelming your taste buds.

Doritos  is an American brand of flavored tortilla chips produced since 1964 by Frito-Lay. The original Doritos were not flavored. The first flavor was Toasted Corn, released in 1966, followed by Taco in 1967 and Nacho Cheese in 1972.
Doritos 3D is a line of puffed Doritos introduced in the 1990s and discontinued in the United States in the mid-2000s. These snacks have been described as “Doritos-meets-Bugles”

There are 102 Doritos Flavors from Around the World like tomic Chile Limon, Bacon, Baja Picante, Black Pepper Jack and many many more…But let me share a tip, i feel that when you have doritos with dips it just takes it to the next level. The dips when mixed crunchiness and flavour .. you just go yummm!

8.Pop tarts

For more than half a century, Pop-Tarts have been a stalwart fixture in American breakfast pop culturePop-Tarts is a brand of toaster pastries that the Kellogg Company introduced in 1964. Pop-Tarts have a sugary filling sealed inside two layers of thin, rectangular pastry crust. Most varieties are also frosted. Although sold pre-cooked, they are designed to be warmed inside a toaster or microwave oven. But half of consumers don’t even toast them. Creator Bill Post himself is guilty of not toasting these sweet breakfast treats. He admitted that when he samples them, he eats them right out of the box.

Pop-Tarts come in over 25 different flavors. They have them classified as fruit, chocolate, bakery, and ice cream — and within each of those categories is a treasure trove of deliciousness. There are even the special editions to hunt for throughout the year. 
The flavors people love the most are frosted strawberry, brown sugar cinnamon, and s’mores.

9.Cheez-Its

Cheez-It is a cheese cracker manufactured by the Kellogg Company through its Sunshine Biscuits division. They’re cheesy, salty, bite-size, and perfectly shaped. The square crackers are made with wheat flour, vegetable oil, cheese made with skim milk, salt, and spices. Light and crispy bite-sized snack crackers made with real cheese and a dusting of salt.

“Tangy, sweet, classic Cheez-It. Love these.” “Best at, like, the 16th one, when the Cheez-It taste coats your mouth and you don’t remember how many you’ve eaten.” The best part about Cheez-Its are that you can eat 60 of them and not feel bad about it because they’re so small. The platonic ideal of a cracker. Nicely cheesed, crispy and an entertaining square shape.

There are a variety of Cheez-It flavors and products, including: Atomic Cheddar, Buffalo Wing, Cheddar Cheese Grooves, Swiss Cheese Grooves, Cheddar Jack, Cheez-It Big (a larger cracker more suitable for garnishing or dipping), Cheese Pizza and many more…

10.Gold Fish Crackers

 The Goldfish taste like tiny fish-shaped versions of my favorite crackers. And you don’t even need to order soup to get them! Goldfish are fish-shaped cheese crackers manufactured by Pepperidge Farm, which is a division of the Campbell Soup Company.  The crackers have been available in several varieties and, since 1962, 40% of the crackers contain a small imprint of an eye and a smile. The product is marketed as a “baked snack cracker” on the label with various flavors and varieties.

Goldfish come in many varieties, but start/end dates of availability are unknown: Original, also known as Saltine, Cheddar, Whole Grain Cheddar, Cheese Trio, Parmesan, Pretzel, Pizza, Ranch etc.. They are crunchier, smoother, and have an all-around better taste and mouthfeel. No artificial colors here! Red crackers are colored using a mix of beet juice concentrate and paprika extracted from sweet red peppers. The green color comes from watermelon and huito (a South American fruit) juice concentrates. 

Now that you have a checklist to eat off, why wait? Grab the list get them and enjoy! Do tell me if i missed any other amazing American snacks or if you have tasted any of them before and how did you like them in the comments section!
