Brent and I are going to try some of this food in this English lesson, and you might recognize some of this food. None of this food is from Canada or the United States. It's all from different countries around the world. Maybe some of this is from one of your countries. - So in this English lesson, you are going to learn how to describe food, and we're gonna have a lot of fun tasting it. - Yes, and this is part one of two videos. This lesson is on my channel. Part two will be on Brent's channel, Speak English With This Guy, and you can go watch it right after this one. (bright upbeat music) (camera shutters) (keyboard clacking) So we're gonna try these one at a time. The first thing we're going to try are these plantain chips from Colombia. I think I would say this as Maduritos. Hopefully I'm saying that properly. - Yeah, please don't get mad at us if we mispronounce something that's not English. - Here we go. You wanna try one first? - Sure. Thank you. And I will actually be in Colombia in a few months. Just a quick stop there but looking forward to visiting. (horn blaring) (Brent munching) Already, from here I can hear crunching. - Definitely crunchy. If I was gonna describe these, they are crunchy. They're a little bit sweet. We might say in English, there's a hint of sweetness. Like they're not overly sugary to me but maybe in North America we eat too much sugar. So stuff with a normal amount of sugar doesn't taste sweet. - These remind me a little bit of potato chips. But where potato chips are definitely unhealthy and you can feel the grease as you are eating them. These seem like a healthy version of potato chips. - Yes, definitely, and it even says on the package that they're crunchy. So that's the word I would pick above all, these are crunchy and yummy, by the way. So this next food item is from the United Arab Emirates, and in Canada we would call these Cheezies. You would probably call them... - We'd call 'em cheese curls. - Cheese curls. Yeah, and it looks pretty yummy. I do wanna mention before we taste these though, we will be talking with food in our mouth occasionally, which is considered rude. But for the sake of this English lesson and for the sake of time, we're gonna try and do that as little as possible but it will still happen. (plastic rustling) - Talking and eating are often difficult to do. Whoa. Okay, first thought. These look different. - Yeah, it's a tube. I wasn't expecting that. - No. - It's definitely cheesy. - Absolutely. - That is very cheesy. - These are way more flavorful than the cheese curls I eat in the United States. - Yes, there might be a little more than just cheese flavoring in here but they're definitely crunchy as well, crispy, crunchy. But I would say cheesy is the best word to describe these. - Absolutely. They got a little bit of a bite too. The cheese is sharp. - Yes, but it's very good. So this next food item is called Choco Pie, and they come individually wrapped. It's like a little chocolate cookie or cake. Hopefully they're easy to open. - And I know we're describing food here but we can describe this crinkly wrapper. - Oh, it's definitely crinkly. - I was trying to be quiet while you were talking but it's difficult. I'm a bit of a chocoholic. So in English, when you really love something, that might be a little messy too, huh? - It's a little crumbly. - Mmm, mm. Little dry. - A little dry. Tasty. Again, not as sweet as I was expecting. - Mm-mm. - I think again, as North Americans we have a sweet tooth and this is less sugar than we're used to. Not as crunchy as I was expecting. I thought the wafers inside and the filling, that's what's inside, I think is marshmallow, it is tasty. - It is tasty but definitely less sweet than something you would normally buy here in North America. - It's a little crumbly too, I don't know if I mentioned that. - A little messy to eat. We may want to put a bib on later. - Definitely delicious. That's a good word to describe it. - I'm just gonna keep eating this. - I'm gonna eat the whole thing. I think we forgot to mention where these are from. Where are they from? - Yeah, they're from South Korea. - Yes. Thank you for sending them over. So this next item I'm a little worried about because I don't really like shrimp. These are from China, and they are shrimp flakes, shrimp flakes. - Yeah, I'm not sure how flakes are different from chips. Maybe they're thinner. Total surprise. Ooh. - I'm smelling these before I eat them. - I wonder if any shrimp were hurt in the production of these shrimp flakes. - They're lightly salted, I would describe 'em that way. - I think anytime you eat anything seafood like, you're going to be tasting some salt. - And they're lightly flavored. It's not a strong flavor. So I think these are okay. I did just taste it though. At the back of my mouth, there's a bit of an aftertaste and it's definitely shrimp. - Yes, that second chip where it really hits. - Yeah. - The shrimp flavor. - So I would say I kind of like them. - Yeah, I could eat a bunch of these while watching a movie. - Oh, yeah. That would work. (indistinct) Yep, and with something to drink for sure. So this next thing is a drink. I didn't mention this at the beginning but we do have some drinks as well. And this is Mexican Cola from... Where do you think it's from? - I'm gonna guess Mexico. - Yeah, it's from Mexico. So you wanna talk about the kind of top. - Sure. Yeah, for this, it's not a twist off. Later on. - Oh, it's fizzy. It's fizzy. - Oh, yeah, definitely fizzy. You need a bottle opener for this kind of soda. And living in the United States, I know there is a difference between regular cola and Mexican Cola. Mexican Cola is usually made with real sugar cane, while the American stuff is usually made with the fake sugar. - So it's definitely fizzy and it definitely has a different kind of sweetness, like a more natural tasting sweetness. I'm making it sound like I'm a sugar expert. I kind of am a sugar expert, I think. - I think anybody living in North America we're sugar experts because we consume so much of it. - Yes. So it's definitely yummy, I would say that. It's definitely something I would drink unless it has caffeine in it and then I would try to avoid it. But I give this two thumbs up actually. - Yeah. This is pretty good. This is a nice alternative to the regular Coke. - Yeah. Thanks, Mexico. Our next food item, our next snack is from the Netherlands, and these are cookies and they're called Speculaas cookies.
