American Companies – Foreign Products

While on a business trip in Mexico I became thirsty. Not wanting to drink the water from the tap, I took a stroll to the corner market for some bottled water. The meeting was only dismissed for a short time so I didn’t have time for a trip back to my hotel.

I came across some drink mix that I had never seen before but I grew up with it all my life. It was a normal breakfast drink for us kids. It was Tang. I drank it, Terri drank it and even astronauts had drank it. The difference is it wasn’t the orange Tang that I knew and loved. It was Passion fruit flavored I believe.

I grabbed all that they had on the shelf. It was good tasting. Before I left I found two more flavors and bought them as well. I mailed them back home to myself and shared with all who would partake. It turns out that there are many brands that American companies change to please the palate of different lands. I couldn’t find too many examples but what I did find is below. Japan is a country with an eclectic taste and the products companies make for them prove it. Any make you hungry?

    I’m not a fan of doritos, but I’d be tempted to try the Wasabi flavoured doritos. Or the balsamic flavoured pringles – yummmmmy!

    But Surely Kit Kats are English originally, created in my home county of Yorkshire no less :)
