An American man has become a viral sensation for trying and rating British snacks – including beans on toast, Yorkshire tea, Galaxy ripple bars and jacket potatoes.
AJ Slambino, from Atlanta, Georgia first found fame with British TikTok users after trying popular British staple beans on toast and loving it.
Since, he’s tried dozens more British treats, and observed the difference between UK and US food racking up more than a million likes in the mean time.

While in another he says British chocolate is ‘out of this world’ and that Americans have been missing out on it.

The single dad and self-declared foodie, first went viral for making beans on toast.
He used Heinz baked beans, on a toasted bread which he topped with parmesan cheese.
‘Alright, moment of truth,’ he says before taking a bite.
‘Oh my god, why is that so good,’ he adds.
‘It’s so good. How have we been missing out on that in the United States.
‘This is amazing, amazing, so good,’ he continues.
However, many British followers said he didn’t put enough beans on the bread – and that he should be using cheddar cheese.
On a second attempt of making it and eating it with a knife and fork, he said it taste even better.
AJ also tried a jacket potato with beans and cheese (left) and a Lucozade (right) – both of which he loved
The video now has more than 400,000 views and has spurned dozens more clips.
Clearly inspired by the baked beans, jacket potato with beans and cheese – really really really good. i could eat this
Testing various flavours of chocolate, AJ said he loved Star Bars as they are ‘good’, ‘really chewy’ and ‘almost like a Milky Way’.
‘It tastes way better than any US bar,’ he added.
He also tried a Boost Bar, which he said was ‘absolutely amazing and better than a Twix’.
‘The chocolate is out of this world, everything I eat gets better and better,’ he said upon trying the caramel treat.
He also tasted a Kinder Bueno, which caused him to exclaim: ‘Wow, wow, this just climbed up my list as one of my favourite things I’ve tried so far’.

After a suggestion from a follower, he also tastes Ferraro Rocher which he said was ‘amazing amazing’ and ‘tasted like love’.
AJ also taste tested chocolate hobnobs which he loved but said were ‘100 per cent better dipped in tea’ and Penguin bars, which he compared to Australian Tim Tams.
Other sweet treats included a Galaxy Ripple which he said was ‘not what he expected’ and ‘really light and fluffy’.
On the savoury side, he also tasted Pickled Onion Monster Munch which he called ‘really really good’ as well as baked beans on a pizza.
The single dad and podcaster has also tasted popular British drinks, including Lucozade, ‘great’ Robinson’s orange squash, ‘pretty good’ Iron Bru, and even Yorkshire Tea – which he described as delicious and super refreshing.
However, not even snack venture was successful as he described Wine Gums as ‘awful’ and ‘too chewy’ and Terry’s Chocolate Orange as ‘gross’.
He also tried Fruit Pastilles, which he said were ‘way softer’ than Wine Gums and that they ‘taste way better’ as they were filled with ‘sugary goodness’.
AJ’s least favourite British snack was Branston’s Pickle – which he spat out after trying it in a cheese sandwich.
