A product or brand by any other name would still be the same. If you’ve traveled to a foreign land, you might come across the “American shelf” at the local supermarket.

Sour Patch Kids Are Naughty
Ask any child what their favorite snack is, and one out of a hundred will tell you, “Sour Patch Kids.” It’s no surprise that it’s not exactly a huge favorite among kids, but it’s still a snack that no child could say no to when offered. However, that’s only in America.
If you asked a French child whether they wanted Sour Patch Kids, they’d probably say quoi? You see, Sour Patch Kids go by a different name in the land of wine and cheese: Very Bad Kids. It’s not very clever when translated to English, but the name certainly translates a lot better than Sour Patch. Very Bad Kids also come in different shapes, too.
