I've decided to set myself a personal challenge to review snacks from at least eighty different countries.
The list below shows which countries I've already conquered, in a purely snack eating sense. I'm only adding countries to the list if I've published the relevant review on this blog. The products that make this list are usually ones that can be found in the supermarket, or from local grocery and import shops. A few will even be from my travels (or my relatives' travels).
There are lots of countries missing from the list even though I know I have eaten their snacks already - but they don't count if there is no review. In a lot of my earliest reviews I didn't even always note down which country they were from, so I'm slowly trying to work my way through some of the mysteries but until then...
