They've gotten Crik Crak. Twice. No Krax.

I hate cheese balls and cheese snacks just because of the fucking terrible smell!

But man I love those Maize hooks! I'm feeling the nostalgia (those yelow-ish hooks with a dog on the bag)

Giant Bomb Mailbag: Diabeetus Edition.

I want some hip hop snacks.

Posted by Landon

Someone should send them foreign dog treats and not tell them and see if they eat it on camera.

Where is all the Dracula themed candy?

Most racist mailbag yet and it made me feel like a bad human being for laughing, good job. ;)

The Hip Hop snack packing draws from the French poem Le Corbeau et le Renard by Jean de la Fontaine. The fox flatters the crow to the point it opens its mouth, and then drops the cheese.

THAT'S RIGHT! I thought the picture looked damn familiar but I couldnt place it in my mind. I remember reading that poem all throughout elementary school.

You're right but I included it because it said "Thank You" on it. Guess Ryan wasn't impressed :D

None at the isles I went to buy this stuff. I don't think I would have included it either way. Its bad enough when I see that shit in the country in the form of mugs and shit.

That's okay, I laughed heartily watching them not enjoy a damn thing they tasted lol.

Man, I didn't even know that. The more you know.

Posted by zaglis

Thank you, Romania, for this awesome mailbag.

Edited by Godlyawesomeguy

A "lotto" should be an official measurement.

EDIT: Also, I absolutely love how Ryan and Jeff are always the main dudes to be trying out the weird shit people send them.

Posted by Zeik

Wow, Eugene, Oregon has their own off-brand snacks they ship to Romania? Who knew.

Posted by mosespippy

It sucks that their supply of Romanian food wasn't good. I had this jar of stuff from Romania that was called Choco Ole and it was like a marble swirl of Cadbury Creme Egg filling & Nutella and it was amazing.

One of my absolute favorite things about this video game website is when they eat foreign candy and don't particularly like it. Love the analytic breakdown of the Hip-Hop packaging. The fox and the crow in the tree with the cheese is so hip-hop. If you can't grasp that parallel, you're just not street enough.

Posted by Dross

Great Cam-girl reference at the end there.

@Darkraven: ...wtf?!

Posted by Doomduck

@Landon: I thought the same thing when Jeff said it didn't look like food.

OMG you don't know the story about the fox and the raven!

Kashkaval...

@BaconGames: Hehe, did you send them stuff you actually like or was it just a (successful) attempt to make them eat weird tasting/smelling candy? :)

I'm from ROMANIA! HOLY SHIT! Lotto peanuts aren't peanuts they are like cheetos but worse.

You guys got old the classic old shit, like Eugenie is one of the oldest biscuit thingy you can find and it's really fucking cheap REALLY cheap. Sugus is cheap too, I haven't eaten them in like 10 years, pufuleti is really cheap. Now Poiana chocolate that's the good shit! I'm surprised he didn't send you some energy drinks such as Booster or Spam energy.

Gamebomb.ru is all about Romanian snacks.

Posted by gbrading

Eugenia tastes like Eugenics!

Posted by SmilingPig

I use to work with 3 Romanians and all 3 (including a woman) picked their nose in public very liberally, to the point that it made me wonder if it’s a social thing over there.

One of them explained to me that he use to work in a cola factory in Romania and that the guys would piss in the tanks because the cola would ship to Russia and they really don’t like Russia for some reason.

My point is: I would never eat or drink anything that comes from Romania.

I was considering it but it would only add weight to the package and I didn't want to worry about packing those as well. I'm relieved to hear this because this is exactly what I was going for. Besides I knew it would be hit or miss if they would even drink energy drinks on camera but I know they would try the snacks.

Out of the stuff that I would eat there regularly is that Joe bag. Everything else I threw in there because I knew it was busted or it was a classically popular snack. Lotto puffs, Eugenia, Sugus (although apparently Swiss), are all from my childhood vacations there. Hip-hop snacks were sent because look at those damn things.

@Vigorousjammer: tottally agree :)

The nose picking I can verify is not a normal thing there. Its just they probably didn't give a shit not being in Romania any more. Yeah if my mother is a barometer, stuff like that and not covering your mouth when you cough is still considered impolite.

As far as the Russia thing, remember the Russians swooped in and annexed the country after WWII and instituted a communist state that ran for 40 years. Its repercussions are still felt today. Yeah Eastern Europeans have a thing out for Russians in a basic sense even if most individuals probably don't mind or care at this point.
