“The other day, while doing our weekly shop, I bought for my two children, Benjamin & Ofelia, a packet pf Haribo Maoam lemon-and-lime confectionery. It was only after I was leaving the check-out that I noticed the appalling illustration on the packaging.

This consists of a lemon and a lime locked in what appears to be a carnal encounter. The lime, who I assume to be the gentleman in this coupling, has a particularly lurid and distasteful expression on his face.”

Read the rest of this Letter to the Editor here. Fox News picked up the story here. It struck me as hilarious on the first read through, but I have to admit, the package illustration is a bit odd.
