’Scuse me. I mean, American-flavoured biscuits.
Of course, you can’t see the actual product in this picture, so it may resemble Mississippi Mud Pie more than I expect for something packaged like a factory cookie, but I’m mostly wondering why you’d choose a panda as an advertising icon for “tastes of America.”
The American South is one of the most Anglophilic regions of the U.S. yet its definition of “biscuits” is so very different from the U.K.’s…
Come to think of it, I still don’t get what the English have against the word “cookie.” After all, it just doesn’t seem right to serve milk and biscuits to Father Christmas…
And why would you name a panda Vinnie?
Because only his dad is called Vincenzo?
