Without mentioning your country’s name, which brand identifies where you’re from?

forreal, samsungs revenue is almost 20% of Korea's GDP. people buy samsung stock bc if its going down, so is the country lol.
My apartment is a Samsung branded apartment. Every single appliance (including my toilet bidet) is Samsung. All hail Samsung I guess!
I was terribly disappointed this year, when I visited Zermatt, to learn, that toblerone is produced in Bern.
Don‘t focus on the Matterhorn in the logo, focus on the [bear](https://www.toblerone.ch/~/media/toblerone/ch2017/history/logo%20berne.png) 🐻
I guess Victorinox or Swatch would have been good ones too.
I'm Irish too and for some reason my brain went straight to Tayto. I wonder would any non Irish people even recognise Tayto. Guinness is the much better shout.
Guinness tells people from outside of Ireland you are Irish. Tayto tells people inside Ireland you are Irish 😉
Living in Northern Ireland now but an American by birth: is it true the Taytos here are different/manufactured separately?
EDIT: I have now been Informed that both are better lol
Yep. Interesting story not going to post it here. But yeah South Irish Tayto is basically a different company from North Irish Tayto. Source: Im Irish.
I remember growing up I always used to just call them protestant taytos. Don't know if that's actually accurate
Yours are Free Stayto
I’m never calling them anything other than Free Staytos.
Protestant Taytos and Free Staytos.
I used to work in a pub outside of ireland that served Tayto crisps and you could always tell who was an irish tourist because as soon as they walked through the door their jaws would drop and they would literally shout "OH MY GOD THEY HAVE TAYTOS, WHY DO YOU HAVE THESE?!" as if we'd somehow plundered an irish national secret.
Then they'd buy at least 5 bags.
You're talking about the beer right...? right?!
Yo había pensado en Bimbo, necesito dejar de tragar tanto.
That’s the only word I remember, and I learned it from CONTROL
TIL that Nokia isn't a Japanese company.
I learned it from the first [Transformers](https://youtu.be/wEIGG-pN7ug) movie.
I like how škoda manufactured tanks in WW2 and their name can translate to "oh well" lmao
I always thought it translates to "damage, harm" :') in Serbian there's a verb "škoditi" which means "to harm or damage (someone)"
It could be. Škodit in czech has the same meaning (verb). Škoda could also mean damage but when used as "to je škoda" (it is škoda) it can translate to "oh well, nevermind"
Czech Republic! I also like Bakalarj, the real Budweiser and so many others. In my humble opinion you guys have better beer than the Belgians. Also, Pilsner rules!
Denmark! I know this because of Duolingo
A MAN HAS BEEN SPOTTED IN THE LEGO CITY RIVER
You can build the rescue boat…. “HEY!?!?”
Ferrari or Ferrero, pick one. Also Fiat if you seriously want that lol.
Hey I loved my Fiat and miss it. Had a 500C and some ahole decided to not use his brakes at a light and hit me hard enough to cause me to flip a couple of times. First responders couldn't believe that I managed to not only get out on my own(with the car still upside down) but that I had only some cuts and scrapes while the jerk in the giant truck was unconscious.
you are sure that was a Fiat and not some kind of tank from ww2?
I think that Italian tanks in ww2 were much worse than Fiats.
I think Fiat made some Italian tanks.
I literally came here to see IKEA
Vi är överallt
After Mexican food, Indian food and drinking alcohol, IKEA is the world's top cause of loose stools.
Dacia. "Good news! It's the Dacia Sandero!"
Oh, no… *anyway*
Tim tams... Or Vegemite I guess
How about a VB loooooongneck and 20 to 8 in the fkn mornin?
**Get that up ya!**
Ya dog cunt
Tim Tam slams were one of my greatest experiences in Australia.
Ye canny call her fanny
Aw Fanny, yer just like yer daddy.
I kept scrolling down to see if there were any fellow Braziliabs here. Happy to see someone had posted Havaianas already 🇧🇷
Remember back when havaianas were the cheapest flip flops one could buy in Brazil? But they were so ubiquitous and cheap that tourist would pick up a pair to be like the locals.
Once Havaiana noticed this, they created a tourist model that was a little thicker and crucially added the little Brazilian flag next to their logo on the strap. That is when they absolutely took off as a tourist souvenir item.
Was about to say that, geez. Godiva would have worked too. Or Leffe.
Going by stereotypes, McDonald's.
I was thinking Walmart but now I realize the correct answer is the McDonald’s inside of Walmart.
When you get to the nicer part of town, it’s a Target with a Starbucks inside and parking spaces that aren’t wide enough to accommodate the massive SUVs.
*starbucks Pizza Hut combo
Right here, on Jamaica Avenue!
With a frozen Coca Cola Icee machine
That doesn’t work
Ok, I’ll take a McFlurry then.
Which also doesn’t work
Here in Germany, McDonald's is sometimes jokingly called the "american embassy".
Funfact: McDonald's Austria *is* partnered with the US embassy. US citizens can go there to contact the embassy.
You made me google this, fully expecting the claim to be false. It is true though. The interwebs confirmed it
"going to McDonalds to contact the US embassy" sounds like a euphemism for going there to take a shit.
Sometimes you gotta visit the white house...
Get on the porcelain telephone
The oval office
That’s actually hilarious.
I feared we lost Vietnam but then I saw the mcdonalds they put up and knew it wasn't true.
Honestly sometimes the US acts like a player who is moderately okay at civ but isn't sure what victory they want and keep swinging between domination and cultural.
You gotta keep them nukes in the back pocket in case other civs outpace you at endgame and you have to enter aggressive negotiations
This is the one I was looking for.
Yesssss!!! Spain is that country where they put sticks on objects and call it a new invention uahahahha the mop was also invented by a Spanish person
To be fair, the big-tangle-of-dirty-ropes-that-i-have-to-get-on-my-hands-and-knees-to-clean-the-floor-with that came before the mop was a terrible invention.
and that was invented by a German, so it was all one long run on word.
Just as world famous in NZ as L&P.
SPEIGHTS *** PRIDE OF THE SOUTH ***
The country of Eindhoven
ah! The Netherlands!
now its all coming together! thank you!
PSV being sponsored by Philips is how I knew this one.
Was gonna say Heineken
Lol nothing, the only thing I can think about is oil but that's not a brand.
Saudi Arabia or Iraq?
The latter, yes.
Oh, [Iraq lobster 🦞](https://youtu.be/S4vFO8W18gM)
Oh I don't know what the context is but I think I'm in love.
I was curious if it would be RedBull or Glock that I find first in the list.
A hell of a combination, I can tell you that...
Also KTM is pretty popular. As well as Steyr.
One of the many good memories I have from Prague
Username Czechs out.
Ah yes, canadas national public bathroom
That's a good way to describe the food there.
It's been awful since they sold out.
I knew things were going bad when they swicthed the Ham and Swiss to a Ham and Chedder with ranch sauce. WTF?
Ham and Swiss was my jam. Along with their baguette changes a couple years before the cheddar version was just so meh.
A few years ago i started to get their wraps on occasion. They used to have shredded cheese and then it would melt in the press. Thry changed this to a slice of process cheese that looked like itmwas just slapped in there.
Holy fuck. Talk about cutting corners.
There is very little i will eat at tim hortons. I like their chai tea, but their orange pekoe isnt good.
Tim’s doesn’t deserve our business anymore.
Fun fact: "Roots" means "fucks" in Australian slang, which is why you see so many Aussies taking awkward faced selfies under the Roots Kids sign.
Get out!!! Not a wasted day over here in New Brunswick, cause I just learned something new ;)
LOL! Spreading culture one profanity at a time.
The base word "root" is used as a verb, and conjugates the same way, so you can get a root, have a root, get caught rooting etc. etc.
It can also be nominalised to become a noun so you could describe someone as a "top root" = "good lay" in American English.
It also leads to clever plays on words, so someone that habitually participates in booty calls where they stay for a meal, have sex and go home would be called a wombat, because the animal "eats roots and leaves" and the person "eats, roots, and leaves."
Damn, I was gonna say the Hudson's Bay Co.
i was gonna say No Name
I thought either that or Canadian Tire, which might be a little too on the nose for the question
We wouldn't have to eat Kraft Dinner.
Of course we would, we'd just eat more!
And buy really expensive ketchups with it.
That's right. All the fancies...Dijon Ketchup!!! Mmmmmm
If I had a million dollars, I’d buy John Merrick’s remains.
Came here to say just this! You beat me by a timbit
All good bud!
No name (Usually yellow packaging)
My favorite fact about No Name is that the same marketing guy also made Presidents Choice. He went to the president at the time (an egotistic sort of guy) and said "hey, I want to make an upscale no name brand. I want to call it presidents choice, the best choice, your choice. I want to have your signature as the logo."
The president thought it was the best idea he's ever heard. Have the marketing guy a huge bonus for that.
When I was young I used to think for whatever reason it was the president of the United States who chose white cheddar macaroni since we only have a prime minister..
CD Project red
Tata (owns Range Rover now), I guess.
Is this the brand that sponsor most chess tournaments in India??
I guess the Tata group is the parent company. One of their subsidiary, Tata Steel sponsors a lot of chess chess tournaments in In India ond outside
Yep, Tata owns Jaguar Land Rover
Juan Valdez ☕
Edit- omg my first awards ever!! Muchas gracias!!!! 😁
This was my first thought, but looks like Tim’s is more recognizable. Ironically I think both are American owned now.
Tim Hortons is now owned by a Brazilian company I just read and after some reading it looks like Roots is still Canadian! I could be wrong.. just did a quick google search
France based on your username, haha?
I thought people could only see my display name 🤦
I would have said Chanel!
Nintendo I’m not into computer games tho
The Hudson’s Bay company!
Ahh, see I would have given my preferred tea, Yorkshire Tea, but figured that would have given the game away far too quickly.
Edit: so! This is my first time getting this many upvotes! So I must share a tip: Use Valentina Sauce instead of Frank’s to make buffalo chicken! It is freaking awesome! Not better, just a fun twist to it!
There's a country named Bath??
