'It Tastes Like Belly Fat': South Korean Women Try US Junk Food, And Hate It

Is it a bush tucker trial? Judging from the fuss, you'd think so.

The reality is that a handful of South Korean women have been asked to taste test a selection of popular US snacks including Twizzlers, Pop Tarts, Lay's crisps and Rice Krispie bars.

Now we all know that American snacks aren't the healthiest of the bunch - they're filled with sugar, salt and a whole range of other artificial ingredients which half of us never knew existed.

But judging by the reactions from these ladies, they'd rather eat their own bogies than a rubbery Twizzlers and candle-tasting Pop Tarts. And can we blame them?
