Kosher Chinese

 

Is this the latest Zionist Weapon of Death (Zionist Death FungusTM), poor judgment in product branding, blatant anti-Semitism, or just another example of the Chinese having problems with their English?

 

Whatever the answer, it sure as hell doesn’t look very appetizing.

Update: According to Wikipedia:

Auricularia auricula-judae (syn. Auricularia auricula, Hirneola auricula-judae) is commonly known as the Jew’s ear fungus or Judas’s ear fungus, the name from which it derives the “judae” in its scientific name, or as the jelly ear fungus. This jelly fungus is conspicuously ear shaped, ranging from purple to dark brown or black in color with a rubbery texture, and most often found on dead elder trees but also on elms. It was said that Judas hanged himself on an elder tree, which is the origin of the name.

 

This species is used often in Asian cooking.

Thanks to Kibi for the heads-up.

 

Update: Still on the subject of unappetizing-sounding Asian food (hat tip: Lone Star Times).

Japanese are staying cool as a cucumber this summer with “Pepsi Ice Cucumber” a new soda based on the crisp green gourd.

 

The soft drink, which hit stores here on Tuesday, doesn’t actually have any cucumber in it but has been artificially flavored to resemble “the refreshing taste of a fresh cucumber,” said Aya Takemoto, spokeswoman of Japan’s  Pepsi distributor, Suntory Ltd.  

 

“We wanted a flavor that makes people think of keeping cool in the summer heat,” Takemoto said. “We thought the cucumber was just perfect.”

 

The mint-colored soda is on sale just for the summer and only in Japan, Takemoto said. She said initial sales were brisk, and Suntory aims to sell 200,000 cases over the next three months.
