Chinese Snacks Taste Test [Part 1]

If you think moving to China is adventurous, wait ’til you see the list of Chinese snacks I tasted in my latest YouTube video. Chinese snacks range from typical American gas station fare (Lays potato chips, Dove chocolate), to exotic treats that the average American would never dare to taste (chicken feet, pork floss). Enjoy my ridiculous faces as I taste things with labels I can’t read and whose contents I can only guess.

By the way, I went way overboard on the shopping portion, so this is just part 1 of 2!
