    21 American Food Products That Look Totally Different In Other Countries

    Wait, Cool Ranch Doritos are called what?!

    1. Solo cups (at least in the Netherlands) are sold as "American cups."

    2. And Cool Ranch Doritos In Holland (and other parts of Europe) are called Cool American Doritos.

    They changed the name because ranch dressing isn't as popular or well known outside of America.

    3. Sour Patch Kids in France are called Very Bad Kids.

    4. And the actual candies look different in Australia.

    5. Rice Krispies go by Rice Bubbles in New Zealand (plus Australia and parts of Europe).

    6. Meanwhile, these Pringles sold in China are tomato-flavored!

    7. And these Pringles sold in Brazil are just plain hilarious.

    If you don't get it, watch this.

    8. Speaking of Pringles — they sell instant noodles in parts of Asia!

    I WANT to try!

    9. In Japan, Lipton Tea cartons are very eye-catching.

    10. Some Pepsi bottles look pretty darn different in Japan too.

    11. Oreo, you've done us dirty by selling these only in Asia.

    12. Kraft mac 'n' cheese is called Kraft Dinner in Canada and features a fork on the box instead of a spoon.

    13. Meanwhile, a bag of Ruffles in Mexico looks about the same until you find the hot sauce packet inside!

    14. In China, Lay's Classic potato chips are called Lay's American Classic Flavor.

    15. Frosted Flakes cereal sold in Europe looks almost the same...until you see it's called Frosties.

    16. Axe body spray is called Lynx in Australia (for copyright reasons).

    Fun Fact of the Day: Axe body spray in Australia is called Lynx

    17. And Burger King there is called Hungry Jacks for the same reason.

    18. In Canada, Smarties are called Rockets...but are otherwise exactly the same.

    19. In Italy (and lots of other places around the world), Diet Coke is called Coca Cola Light.

    20. In Europe, Budweiser is a different brand of beer — so you'll find American Budweiser sold as just Bud.

    @ravinglogic @sandikbarr That's the original ( and better, since it doesn't use rice) Budweiser. Adolphus Busch ripped off the name when he started brewing in the US. In the EU, the beer labeled Budweiser is still the original Budweiser. The American Budweiser has to be called Bud in Europe.

    21. And lastly, one reason American foods look different in other countries is that they're grouped together on an "American Food Shelf."

    Dear Finland, we do eat foods — healthier foods — other than just those. Promise!
