The world of junk food is, at the very least, a varied one. In the race to keep up with people’s minuscule attention spans, brands have to come up with more and more innovative ways to market. And by innovative, we mean wild, as these snacks all prove.

Of course, this handy guide will show you how to buy all these foods, because we know some of you have an insatiable sense of curiosity (and/or a death wish). If you do, we wish you and your inevitable stomachache well. (And if you’re the preventative type, Tums can be purchased right here).

Weirdest snacks on Amazon

1) Strawberry Cheesecake Oreos

Ok, I see where they were *trying* to go with this, but I’m pretty sure I speak for everyone when I say I rather eat a piece of strawberry cheesecake (maybe with Oreo sprinkles?). 

Price: $3.85 

Buy on Amazon

2) Crisp Apple Pop Tarts

No. Gross. These two things have never been meant to know one another.

Price: $11.73

Buy on Amazon

3) Lay’s Ketchup chips

People love to add ketchup to things, but the line must be drawn somewhere. It’s great on french fries and tater tots, add it to your eggs, whatever you like. But for the love of all things sacred, please keep it off potato chips. “But a potato chip is a brother to a french fry,” you say. We don’t care. It’s still bad.

Price: $9.80

Buy on Amazon

4) Vegan Rob’s Asparagus Chips

Before we even get into the multitude of things wrong with asparagus-flavored potato chips, we need to point out that Vegan Rob sounds like the kind of guy you try to avoid at Whole Foods while he tries to sell you organic kale smoothies. Sorry not sorry, Vegan Rob. And asparagus are delicious roasted with butter and freshly ground pepper. On a potato chip, not only does that not sound unappealing, but we’d rather just eat actual asparagus.

Price: $39.90+ for a multipack 

Buy on Amazon

5) Vegan Rob’s Spinach and Matcha chips

Yes, Vegan Rob’s chips are on this list twice because there were multiple offerings so terrifying we had to include them. One thing is clear: Vegan Rob is out to crush the souls of snack lovers everywhere.

Price: 35.76+ for a multipack

6) Sloppy Joe Pringles

NO, Pringles. NO. BAD.

7) Prawn Cocktail Pringles

Hey, Pringles, are you guys ok?

8) Walker’s Worcestershire Sauce chips

The UK is full of absolutely wonderful things. This is not one of them.

9) Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows

I blame Starbucks for this one–ugh. 

Price: $4.20

Buy on Amazon

10) Ruffles Mozzarella and Marinara flavored chips

Ettore Boiardi is rolling over in his grave because of these.

Of course these are branded with Minions.
