1. United Kingdom

Beans on toast – an unbeatable classic in UK students’ diets…

The Philly Cheesesteak has become an iconic staple of the city.

7. Israel

Warning: snacking on Bamba (peanut-buttery puffs) can be pretty addictive.


8. Australia

They might not be the healthiest option, but Australian hamburgers definitely hit the spot. And if you’re feeling brave, try a witchetty grub – a traditional delicacy among aboriginal Aussies.


9. Canada

Poutine is a firm favorite with Canadian students. French fries, cheese curds and gravy never tasted so good.

Cooome-on and try khaman, one of the most popular student snacks in India. (We’ll stop the puns now).


12. Latin America

Alfajores are the best cookies you’ve never heard of, popular in Latin America as well as parts of Spain and the Philippines. They are soft, crumbly cookies with a sweet caramel filling, and quite hard to resist!
