Americans try out Jollibee

Leave a Reply

So some of the staff of Buzzfeed agreed to try the offerings of Jollibee in the U.S. Some of the feedback was hilarious:

Little Big Bite (Spam sandwich): “It tastes like a sandwich made by a divorced dad.”
Spicy Chicken: “It’s like a new type of spice.”
Burger Steak: “It look beautiful. I love it.” “I think that looks disgusting.”
Halo Halo: “How stoned [were} the Jollibee people when making this stuff up?” “It looks like if Christmas was a food.”

Basically, some of them hated some of the food and enjoyed some of the others. I’m Filipino myself, and I’m not a big fan of halo halo, and will not eat Jollibee spaghetti if you paid me to. But I’ll eat the chicken, and maybe even the burger steak if I was REALLY hungry.

All in all it was an interesting cultural study, I think. I just wish there was at least one African American doing the taste test.

Thanks to Budjette for the link!
