辣条 latiao or “spicy sticks” are a popular snack food among Chinese students, mostly due to its cheap cost. Recently, they trended on China’s microblogging social network Sina Weibo under the hashtag #辣条征服世界# (“latiao taking over the world”), where many students encouraged their foreign instructors to try the snack. However, it was also reported that this cheap snack is produced in unsanitary conditions and may actually cause cancer.

From Sina Weibo:

@正常人办不出这种事儿: Foreign teachers with laotiao has successfully entered the international market! I’ve already bought a box, with plans to invite foreign teachers to try them, and thus reach the pinnacle of my life [become a “winner”]!!

From Sina Weibo:

@新浪娱乐: Today, I had latiao for breakfast. Don’t ask me why, I’m just that stubborn! Recently, the price of latiao abroad has steeply increased, their 10+ US dollar price per pack a shock to the eyes, with netizens gasping that #Latiao is taking over the world#! Everyone, let us fondly recall our prior love story with latiao: “I fell for you, not because you had a house and car, but because that day the weather was great, you were wearing a white shirt, and in your pocket was a pack of latiao.”
