There’s no denying the proliferation of Western culture in our society. From quality makeup products, unique food and snacks to even television serials, the United States of America is home to a variety of stuff that we just can’t find in Singapore.
Even the sheer geographical distance between our tiny country and USA has not stopped us from pining for products originating from over there. While there are some of us who simply cannot find the time and resources to travel some halfway around the globe to enjoy what the huge nation has to offer (sigh, I’m talking about you Chipotle and In-and-out Burger and Taco Bell to name a few), take comfort in knowing that munching on those US snack is much easier thanks to Airfrov. Check out what some of our users have been ordering here.
But for those who need a little inspiration, here’s our pick of some snacks that we are simply dying to lay our hands and taste buds on.
1. Cookie Butter Sandwiches from Trader’s Joe
What’s better than Speculoos cookie butter spread is when you sandwich a generous dollop of its creamy goodness in between two buttery shortbread cookies. The rich and luxurious snack is flaky, sugary, crunchy and sweet packed in a box. It’ll be sinful to finish a whole box, but you won’t be able to stop.
Estimated cost: USD11.30 from Amazon
2. The Original Sirarcha Hot Chili Sauce Popcorn from POP! Gourmet
When America’s favourite chili sauce makes an uncanny partnership with the nation’s unofficial movie snack, the result is an unexpected blend of flavours. The prospect of savoury popcorn might sound funky, but trust us when we say that you won’t be able to stop popping these addictive salty-spicy morsels in your mouth.
Estimated cost: USD2.92 from Walmart
3. Birthday Cake Oreos (and many other unique flavours)
We’ve all seen them on countless YouTube videos where people review the taste of these cookie sandwiches. If you’re anything like me, you’ll be watching them with equal parts envy and anger. When the original white stuffing comes studded with rainbow sprinkles, you just know that nothing could go wrong. From the Birthday Cake flavour to the Red Velvet and even Watermelon, you’ll no longer be satisfied with just the black and white.
Estimated cost: USD3.02 from Walmart | Try it out, ask travellers to get you a packet here.
4. Biscuits and Gravy Potato Chips from Lay’s
This bag of potato chips is the perfect representation of America – a combination of a diner classic with the country’s favourite junk food. Each chip is a delicate balance of sweet and savoury from. This is one snack that will only be possible thanks to the American culture.
Estimated cost: USD2.60 from Walmart | Try it out, ask travellers to get you a packet here.
No, we aren’t talking about those you can get from the Valuedollar store with their dubious looking packaging. If you’re going to overdose on sugar, you have to do it right – with the huge range of flavours. Almost like a classic American snack, these Poptarts come in flavours that you cannot say ‘no’ to, like the latest Frosted Chocolatey Caramel, sinful Frosted Hot Fudge Sundae and all-time favourite Frosted Blue Raspberry. You might have just found the new snack replacement for your breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Estimated cost: USD3.68 from Walmart
6. Chex Mix
This is one bag of snack mix that’s perfect for fickle eaters out there. Each bag consist of a variety of snack which include corn Chex, wheat Chex, pretzels, rye chips and mini breadsticks coated in a unique seasoning that makes for a varied and truly special snacking experience.
Estimated cost: USD2-3 from Walmart
Sure, Cheetos are good and cheesy and crunchy and oh-so-addictive. But have you had Sweetos, the sugary sweet Cinnamon Sugar Puffs that will make you feel like you are biting into light and airy cinnamon-dusted donuts. It’s a bag of fall flavours that you can ingest.
Estimated cost: USD2.62 from Walmart
