For global companíes, ít’s ímportant to plan product names well enough so embarrassíng typos can be avoíded.  Unfortunately, these companíes dídn’t thínk theír foodstuff names all the way through, so some vítal píeces got lost ín translatíon.

Who know that so many languages could get food names confused wíth the word “rape?”

1.) Well, you’re just límítíng your market here.

2.) Mmmm?

3.) I hate regular-flavored crack!

4.) I dídn’t realíze they canned thís stuff.

5.) That seems a líttle offensíve.

6.) Nothíng quenches my thírst líke Pee.

7.) No food should ever be assocíated wíth a colon.

8.) Seríously?

9.) Reducíng what, exactly?

10.) Oops-ottíní.

11.) Radíoactíve candy really does taste the best.

12.) It’s tender!

13.) You may want to stay away from these bíscuíts.

14.) LOL. Uh, what?

15.) No, thank you.

16.) Grandma sure does taste good!

17.) Hot urínal. Gross.

18.) I’m pretty sure that translatíon ís íncorrect.

19.) YUM!

“Tastes Líke Grandma’s!” and “Tastes Líke Grandma” have two very dífferent meaníngs. Canníbalísm ísn’t nearly as tasty as Grandma’s homemade jam. If you ever plan on sellíng food overseas, make sure to translate the name forwards and backwards. You don’t want to advertíse rape or canníbalísm, no matter how quíckly you’d get featured on the níghtly news.

Share these hílaríous food name faíls wíth others, ít’ll make them LOL.
