TikToker gets hilarious culture shock after trying to order 'chips and salsa' in Italy

A word to the wise: “Chips and salsa” doesn’t mean the same thing everywhere. That’s the lesson behind a viral video from Kacie Burns (@kacierose4), an American TikToker living in Italy. Burns’ clip, which has more than 6.5 million views, showed what happened when she tried to order the dish abroad. “An equal mix of hilarious and disappointing,” she captioned her post. As Burns explained in the clip, she sat down at a restaurant in Italy and noticed “chips and salsa” on the menu. After ordering it, she got something pretty unexpected. Burns showed an image of her food, which featured a basket of potato chips with a side of one ketchup packet and one mayonnaise packet.
