    They even changed the original names of some them to be able to export.

    As far as names go, you can't go wrong with Cloetta Plop or Picardi Sweat ;) (I hope I got the company names not too badly)

    WarPhalange, that's just wrong. In so, so many ways.

    EDIT: I switched to links instead of images to not hog the thread.

    Here's the photoshop from another angle.

    Lots of companies are in on this photoshop apparently.

    Is it sponge worthy?

    It's not a food item, rather a cleaning product, but in Belgium it's called "Cillit Bang!". I always misread it as missing the first "il", maybe that is a problem with me :confused: :blushing:
    The same product in South Africa is called "Easy off Bang!"
    IMO both are hilarious :)

    because of some political correctness in SA, coco pops were changed to choco krispies. I find that that kind of undermining of the intelligence of the public a little offensive.

    By far the most offensive smelling fruit in the world. I didn't have the courage to taste it though I understand it supposedly tastes good. It smelling like someone's dirty socks having gotten up, wandered around the countryside, had a good long life, then died in a compost heap somewhere really turned me off.

    I think God had a sense of humour when creating the asparagus. You get those nice long white ones, very phallic indeed. Also, the green ones make your pee kind of glow and smell terrible!
    The shape some might find offensive (not me, I think it's cool to be seen sucking on a Spargel :wink:)
    The glowing pee and smell I find entertaining but could be offensive I suppose :tongue:
