We all love a little junk food in our lives from time to time. My guilty pleasures are all dressed chips, salt and vinegar chips, and so much chocolate. Just all of it. The best fact to be aware of, is that here in North America, we are not alone in our love for junk food. It exists all around the world in every flavor and every brightly colored packaging you can imagine. No matter where you are in the world, you will always be able to get your junk food fix. What I have found fascinating is that many of the flavors are extremely different from one side of the world to the next. Could you ever see yourself craving Masala flavored chips? I couldn’t! What about fried rice crackers? That just doesn’t seem like my cup of tea. You never know though, maybe you’ll find your next guilty pleasure in this list.
