A parent in New Zealand expressed his disgust after sweets shaped like penises turned up in his kid’s packet of gummy bears. The offending sweets were allegedly mixed in with the regular gummy bear sweets at the manufacturers which is based in China; in Asia the penis sweets wouldn’t be considered offensive, but rather as symbols of fertility and health. The local distributor in New Zealand apologised and recalled thousands of the bags of sweets. A parent of three children found the sweets in a bag his children had bought for him. His partner said that she didn’t find anything funny about it and that the sweets are disgusting.
