Case in point: The hilarious video below of American kids tasting and reacting to unusual breakfast foods, which was inspired by a New York Times Magazine article featuring kids with breakfasts of their countries.
In the video, as bowls and plates of foods from different countries are placed in front of each child, their expressions and actions run the gamut from smiling faces to shaking heads, spitting out food or clapping hands.
Personally, I think the Asian boy in the blue blazer (see right) steals the show -- his wide range of reactions (from incredulous grimaces to awesome giggles to beatific smiles) make for a great #fridaylaugh. Plus, he says one of the best lines of the video -- after tasting Brazilian coffee, he shouts: "It tastes like cow poop!"
Here are favorite quotables from the video:

(Noshing on toast with chocolate sprinkles from the Netherlands)
(Being told where certain foods come from)
