    Is it coffee?

    Found this in an asian grocer in Geelong...

    The packed looked like coffee lollies but it said chocolate :-?

    In fact it said.. "savoury chocolate"

    (I have a theory on bored backpackers getting work in asian countries as translators... Im sure they are the cause of most ching-lish on products.)

    punchline is... the back of the packet mentions coffee, sugar etc... but no chocolate.

    Its instant coffee. I believe its Japanese Sumiyaki style. The characters translate as "charcoal coffee."

    Special thanks to the wife for the translation.

    I mustve been drinking "savoury chocolate" for years.
