Cock soup, anyone? Five comedy cornershop items

Posted at 8:00 am, December 12, 2013 in Fun London

Ok, it’s childish. But these food and drink items, readily available from your local cornershop, have some pretty funny names. Whether the humour is unintentional, lost in translation, or just really clever marketing, here are five items we dare you not to snigger at:

Cock soup: just add water and you can have a spicy, ready-made cock-flavoured noodle soup. That means cockerel-flavoured, of course.

The Full Monty: the combination of the male strippers name and the pink, glistening sausage ensures you can’t miss the phallic overtones of this ready-made tinned breakfast.

Cookies & Creme Muscle Milk: bodybuilders have sweet cravings too. Bless.

Cemen dip: yes, it’s probably pronounced che-men, but this ‘spicy hot spread’ does sound a bit rude.

Kiddylicious

Kiddylicious: just how many board and committee meetings did this product go through without anyone saying, “Wait a minute guys, there’s something not quite right aboout this name”?

Spunk

Spunk Salt Lakrids: OK, maybe you won’t find this is any old cornershop, but if you have a Scandinavian food outlet nearby you’ll be able to pick up this traditional Danish sweet. It’s salted liquorice and tastes foul. Try to resist making ‘spit or swallow’ jokes.
