Every country has its amazing plethora of delicious cuisines made for five-star star hotels and restaurants. But on the other end is the cheaper and adventurous street food adventures or homemade dishes by locals travelers could partake in the form of snacks in the afternoon, including convenient ones that could be brought into parks or beaches while enjoying the view.

Here are some of the different ways on how people snack around the world. 

In New Zealand, nothing is simpler than having a cheese roll for an afternoon delight. According to Traveler Australia, this simple post-lunch delicacy is served only in Dunedin and Invercargill with bakeries and cafes offering this dish made of grated cheese and evaporated milk, and served with authentic French onion soup.

In a typical Japanese afternoon, neighborhoods steam or microwave soy beans for snacking. Japan's Edamame has a rich amount of vitamin K and folate. These pods are then salted or even boiled with garlic to taste. If not eaten for the afternoons, most Japanese restaurants serve them on the side.

The best appetizer in any Persian or Arabian restaurant is a good serving of hummus. A combination of chickpeas, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and tahini is something only a five-star restaurant -- and a great local household -- could offer. In most Middle Eastern homes, hummus is served with lightly-grilled pita bread to afternoon visitors

When visiting Vietnam, street hawkers will attract travelers due to the scent of their summer rolls. Authentic cooking is found in Vietnam's streets. It is healthy, too! According to Huffington Post, the typical summer roll contains lettuce, carrots and cilantro. The mint also adds to the thrill and unique characteristic of this Vietnamese dish.

In New York, pizza will always be a favorite. The city has plenty of hot dogs but pizza is the true winner of an afternoon snack in the Big Apple. The Internet memes were right -- who could resist pizza if its tomato sauce, mozzarella and other cheeses were staring?
