Disturbing things in Rome supermarkets

I’ve put up a post on Engrish in Rome some time back. Today, I thought I’d share with you a few interesting and somewhat disturbing things that I noticed in the supermarkets of Rome.

First off, is the iBulli.


Maybe its made to replicate the success of the iMac, the iPod, the iPhone, and the iPad. Or maybe it is for Steve Jobs to announces that he will serve this when suing his competitors with a patent infringement. Nevertheless, I am curious to know what the freaking heck the company was thinking when creating this snack.

This isn’t disturbing but it was amusing anyway. In Malay, Malu means embarrassed or shy.


Thus this is the shyest chocolate in Italy! And it will make you feel embarrassed to eat it! In all honesty, I was actually keen to try it out but it contained gelatin 🙁

Know someone unattractive?


For an even less tactful manner, we suggest that you serve them Hag coffee! Gingerbread house not included.

And maybe it could just me but …


There is something disconcerting when I’m all alone in the toilet, with cramps and bleeding out of my ladybits and there are eyes staring right back at me!

And last but not least, I dont understand why anyone thought that it would be a good idea to put a picture of the animals smiling on the label of a bottle of their puréed selves.


I’m not a vegetarian but I think its disturbing! That soft, gentle smile beckoning you to be their friend. And you step closer to say hello.


And then you find out that your new friend is lifeless, chopped up and puréed in a bottle.

I think a kid could easily grow up disenchanted and cynical with this.

  1. I straight out laughed at the last picture! The pictures ARE rather cute. Why would anyone eat pureed animals anyway? I haven’t tried it, so I don’t know. 🙁

  2. Cos its food for babies. You know, the stage when they just growing their teeth but not developed enough to eat solid food.

    Poor babies are going to have a heartache when they grow old enough to realise to know what they just ate :p

  3. Xinyun

    Actually ostrich and rabbit arent very strange to me though. There are ostrich meat being imported to Singapore from Australia and it was supposed to be popular though I’ve yet to see any restaurants serving them.

    And there are a large number of street vendors selling rabbit burger in Malaysia. I tried one out of the novelty of it. Though to me, it tastes like chicken though.


    Which ones? The names in Italian?
