We all know that fighting games are a very serious business, but sometimes it's nice to take a step back and enjoy some lighthearted fun and make people eat things they think are strange.

Gaming accessory manufacturer HyperX brought together three of South Korea's best fighting game players to try out some popular snacks from the United States and record their reactions.

Tekken masters FOX|JDCR and FOX|Saint along with Street Fighter legend PG|Infiltration taste test (and smell test) Sour Patch Kids, pork rinds, Hostess Twinkies, Haribo Happy Cherries, Twizzlers, beef jerky and Riesen candies in the video below where they share their very honest opinions.

The players seem very pleased with the Twinkies and gummy cherries, but were less fond of the Twizzlers and beef jerky to a lesser extent because of their toughness and smell (except for Infiltration, who apparently quite enjoys the smell of jerky).

All three were taken aback by the pork rinds upon opening the package and giving them a smell. Infiltration even jokingly goes to place them in the garbage can before any of them had completed their taste test for the chicharrones.

You can check out all of their thoughts and reactions in the video below, and let us know what snacks you'd like them to try in the comments.
