Some of those I have never heard of, let alone recognise the logo. Just a suggestion, and I never thought I’d be the americocentric complainer, but can these quizzes please only include global brands?

Agreed. As a non-American on here you expect a degree of Americanisation. But some of those companies, Costco, Verizon, Jif, Chevron, and Hershey, just have zero presence outside America.

Hershey is probably guessable from mentions in film and TV, but the others are very tough.

For what it's worth, Costco has more than 200 non-US locations. Canada, Mexico, UK, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Australia, Spain, France and Iceland.

You always make this complaint and you are always wrong. You really need to get out more. I've shopped at a CostCo in Korea. I've purchased Hershey chocolates and Jif peanut butter in several if not dozens of different countries. I used to work for a British company in Saudi Arabia that was affiliated with Chevron and shopped at many of their Caltex locations in the Philippines. Stop blaming your ignorance on the quiz.

Agreed. Although we have Costco and Hershey in Canada. After all, what other brand tries to sell you wax under the label "chocolate"?

Having traveled around the world and been to so many countries where it is virtually impossible to find high quality real chocolate, I've come to very much appreciate Hershey's high standards, though it's far from my favorite brand of chocolate.

Costco in France... yes 1 at "Villebon-sur-Yvette". I don't even know what that city is. It's like 38km from Paris and I don't even live there but in the south of France

@kalbahamut - If you were used to Swiss, Belgian or even English chocolate, you would never touch Hershey's... Its just disgusting in comparison.

Hershey is one of the most disgusting chocolate, it even became a meme about that.

While I agree those brands are not only in America, I can’t let you say that Hershey is high quality.

Besides, it would be nice having this quiz with brands outside us, we barely see any Asian or South American brands on there.

The hyperbole here is just ridiculous.

The quality of chocolate is always relative. Hershey's is not "low quality" chocolate, it's chocolate stabilized with butyric acid, a characteristic taste that a lot of Americans became accustomed to and others mostly (but not entirely) haven't. Complaining about it is like complaining about the taste of tamarind in tamarind candies or the taste of rosewater in Turkish delight. I don't like tamarind but it doesn't make tamarind candies "low quality" and it doesn't mean that people who like them are stupid or undiscriminating. It just has a flavor which is offputting if you aren't used to it and don't like it.

I tried lots of treats and snacks in Japan and some of them were really noisome to me, in texture or in taste, but I didn't feel the need to whine about it, without being asked, every time someone mentions them.

Lululemon is Canadian. Swarovski is Austrian. I've never seen these logos in the United States, but they do do business there. Heineken is Dutch. Samsung is Korean. Chiquita is Swiss. I've seen those in the US before. Every single one of the brands here are global brands.

True, but global brand doesn't mean they are active in every country of course, so it is perfectly fine not to know all brands. Some may also be "just another brand" in a lot of countries. Regardless, I feel complaining about it makes little sense, it is much easier to learn from a quiz like this. I've learned a lot from JetPunk. Also, not all quizzes have to cater to everybody, if it is not your cup of tea, skip it, or try and laugh about how little you know about a certain subject.

Most people who use JetPunk are from the US. And the quizmaker can put whatever brands they like. And I'm sure if they did put more international brands the Americans would complain that they didn't know any of them either.

Also the implication that the American brands on these quizzes are not international, or less international than the British, Swiss, Dutch, Korean, or other brands, is false.

Thats not true (referring to the comment that most people who use Jetpunk are from the US). According to this quiz:

https://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/176412/countries-with-the-most-jetpunk-users

Only 27.7% of users are based in the US therefore by a huge amount, the majority of users are not from the US.

Surprised how only 18% got Lemon. I don't know if it has anything to do with the difference in popularity in places other than my area.

I'm shocked only 23% got Cheerios. All kids you've ever seen learning to eat for themselves love picking those things up in their fingers.
+1
Level 89
Jun 19, 2019
probably because the packaging varies from place to place. The only cheerios boxes I have seen in shops are white, so a yellow box with a c in it doesn't help a lot.

Sep 13, 2019
Yeah, it's 33% now, but still... I would think Cheerios are pretty widely known, and there is literally a picture of a Cheerio in the logo.
+2
Level 68
Sep 13, 2019
The C on a yellow background didn't trigger it for me. If I had looked closer and seen the actual cheerio in the picture I almost certainly would have gotten it, but without that it's not very recognizable even if you see boxes of it in the grocery store all the time.

I actually thought the cheerio was an imperfection on my computer screen. It's more obvious when you click on the image to make it larger. Oh well!

I'm definitely aware of the brand and what they sell, but that logo looks like the Greek letter omega to me or maybe a stylized horseshoe.

Curious, I looked it up. It was originally designed to look like the letter A because of the brand's earlier name ("athletically hip") as well as to look like "a woman's hair and face outline".

I also would rather global brands.. Belive it or not, only a very small population %% knows about cheerios. (although I reckon the same counts for global brands like swaroskk)

I have personally seen Cheerios being sold on supermarket store shelves in probably 30 different countries, and according to General Mill's website they do business in 130 countries with Cheerios being their staple product. It's the most popular brand of cereal in the world bar none. The only brand I may have seen sold outside of the USA more often is maybe Special K. But Cheerios would be a close 2nd if it wasn't 1st.

I've never seen Swarovski, an Austrian company, being sold anywhere. Or at least I've not noticed it. Its Wikipedia page says they operate in 170 countries. Believe it or not, your not knowing an answer doesn't automatically render the question unfair.

Why would non-American logos be easier to guess than American ones? It's not as if every brand headquartered in the UK is universally recognized the world over. These quizzes are fine as is. Not that there would necessarily be anything wrong with another that had more non-American brands. That would be fine, too. Just like this quiz is fine.

In Ireland and UK Chiquita is a major banana brand . Bananas usually are sold with a small brand sticker on them if bought in bunches . Oranges , lemons , melons etc also have brand stickers on. I also remember a TV ad campaign for Chiquita in the 1980s with a Mexican / Latin American theme.

The mind boggles. Something isn't "obscure" just because you're ignorant of it. And I don't know why you would jump to the conclusion that it's "American" (it isn't). I've never understood the mentality of reacting with resentment when a question reveals my ignorance.

Lululemon had almost one billion (US) dollars in profit in 2021. They are one of the major brands of athletic wear and one of the biggest sellers of stuff related to yoga. They also sponsor the Canadian Olympic Team and were founded in Vancouver in 1998.
