Photos: Funky Flavored Chips and Snacks from Asia

by

Browsing through Asian grocery and convenient stores is never a bore. During my six week trip to China and Taiwan, I became obsessed with documenting interesting flavored snacks. Some were palatable (green tea flavoring, for example, is nothing new). Others were just plain weird. Fatty pork chips anyone?

But in a country where packaged chicken feet are sold as grab-and-go snacks (think of them as the equivalent of our beef jerky), these oddly flavored snacks did not phase anyone except the gaping tourists.

The surprising part? A good number of the weirdly flavored brands are American-owned. Turn the page for photos.
