Ranking Snacks and Treats from the United Kingdom

Recently, Mother Duck and I got a small box of treats and snacks from the United Kingdom.  And rather than just casually enjoy them like a normal person, I had to rank them!  These assorted goodies come from England, Ireland, and Scotland and can be found ranked below in order from least yummy to the very best!

The Duck Makes a Christmas Smorgastarta

For Christmas this year, we decided to throw out all notions of a traditional meal and cut straight to the good part.  The cake.  Yes, because we decided to try a smorgastarta, a Swedish recipe that we had never attempted before that’s basically the equivalent of a sandwich cake!  (Silly readers, did you really think we ate a chocolate cake for our Christmas dinner?)  What we made was basically a double-decker sandwich with three different fillings, frosted with chive and onion cream cheese and garnished with red onions and celery leaves.  After all, the true meaning of Christmas is to celebrate Jesus’ birthday, and every self-respecting birthday party needs a delicious cake!

Ranking Random Snacks and Sweets from Turkey Volume 2

Earlier this year, the Duck ranked delightful snacks from several different countries (links to these posts can be found at the bottom).  Seeing as Turkish Munchies ended up being my favorite of the bunch, I decided to buy another one of their purple boxes of random goodies.  Fortunately, most of the included treats turned out to be brand new ones that I had never tried before, though there were two that I excluded from this post.  One was the banana-flavored wafer cookies because I’m really not a fan of bananas.  And the other was the pop rocks.  Because I’ve already tried them multiple times in other ranking posts, and they’re disturbing, and I refuse to put myself through that again!  (Just a note: each title usually includes the brand name followed by the snack/flavor.)

Popin’ Cookin’ Donuts Review

A short while ago, I reviewed the Popin’ Cookin’ food kit called Sweets Party, in which I created multiple tiny desserts using powders mixed with water.  At the time of purchase, I had also gotten a second kit for creating tiny donuts.  As a big fan of these ring-shaped treats, I had high hopes for this one, even if I tried to keep my expectation of the flavors in the realm of the reasonable.

Popin’ Cookin’ Sweets Party Review

Recently, Mother Duck and I have been rewatching several of Brutalmoose’s videos on Youtube where he puts together various Popin’ Cookin’ food kits, a trio of videos where he assembles miniature burgers, takoyaki, and gummies.  While they never turned out particularly delicious, they looked like a pretty cute and fun diversion that we just had to try for ourselves.  We ended up buying two kits of the sweeter variety, as they seem to be more edible than their savory counterparts.  Our first choice was Sweets Party, which would allow us to create five tiny treats.

Ranking Random Snacks and Sweets from Turkey

Our last international food ranking post for the time being is actually the best one yet!  This post will be covering a delightful assortment of edible goodness that I got from Turkey, all of which came in a cute purple box!  Most of the snacks were of the sweet variety, but this post will also include a small portion of savory snacks, as well.  Links to previous posts can be found at the bottom.  (Just a note: each title usually includes the brand name followed by the snack/flavor.)

Ranking Random Sweets from Mexico

Our newest food ranking is here, where I try various sweets from Mexico!  Can the Duck handle the heat of these frequently spicy treats?  Find out below! Oh, and I didn’t try Limon 7 because I wasn’t quite sure how I’d feel about salt and lemon powder….  (Just a note: each title usually includes the brand name followed by the snack/flavor.)

Earlier this week, I ranked a bunch of snacks I tried from Malaysia (link found below), and today, it’s time to rank the good stuff, the treats!  This was a pretty tasty assortment of sweets indeed, with the number one item in particular being something I seriously wish I could buy more of!  (Just a note: each title usually includes the brand name followed by the snack/flavor.)

Ranking Random Snacks and Sweets from Guatemala

A short while back, I ranked some random Japanese snacks and sweets that I received as an early Christmas present (links can be found below).  I was asked if I was going to do any more posts like this, and so I decided to order a couple more snack and treat assortments from various other countries off of Amazon.  Today, we’re going to start with the selection I received from Guatemala, which just so happened to come in a cool box and even included a nifty little bookmark!
