Due to Their Laxative Effects, Please Keep Your Nigroid Consumption to Ten Pellets Per Day

Filed under uncategorized

From the Products That Shouldn’t Exist and the Too Good to Be True files, my boyfriend Kamran brings us


NIGROIDS,

the sweet licorice-flavored expectorant throat lozenge from the folks who brought you


The Cadbury Egg, which usually comes in candy form and not truck form.

There’s absolutely no mention of the name being racially-tied at all, but COME ON. And it’s totally not an antiquated product like you’d think; there are several websites offering them for purchase. Don’t you just love the idea of pulling your tin of breath mints from your pocket in public and asking your friends, “Anyone care for a Nigroid?”

Kamran says that their slogan should be “Nigroid Please”, but even with a catchy jingle, it’d be a hard sell once people find out about the major side effect,


Nigroid teeth.

    No worries; I bet you can still eat chicken and watermelon with black teeth.

    that’s right, I went there.

    • Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Eric, this pleases me so. I was concerned that this post wasn’t getting any comments because everyone was too afraid to come off as racist. Thanks for stepping up to the plate in the most offensive way possible.

    I think someone needs to “ask a Brit”. A real, live Brit to get the skinny on this product.

    • I secretly don’t think anyone knows a thing about them. Because since I posted this, I’ve gotten hundreds of hits from people Google searching for Nigroids. If you’re looking for blogfame, evidently racist candy posts are the way to go.

    I’m from the UK. I just had a ‘nigroid’. They had to change the name.
