Politically Correct Ice Cream Sold in Russia


Little Obama Ice Cream Goes on Sale

An experimental ice cream brand named “Little Obama” has appeared on sale in the Russian republic of Tatarstan, the regional evening-kazan.ru news website reported.

“Obamka” (Little Obama) ice cream went on sale in the city of Naberezhnye Chelny in late April.

Deputy development director at the Slavitsa ice cream factory Rasil Mustafin, said that the name was not political but chosen due to the product’s chocolate flavor. “There’s no political underpinning. We have no intention to offend anyone,” he said. “Someone at the factory came up with the idea.”

The product designers were inspired by a Soviet-era cartoon, said the factory’s financial director Anatoli Ragimkhanov. The show featured an imaginary island named “Chunga-Changa,” inhabited by African children. “We just like the name,” he said. “It’s so amusing.”

Only one batch of “Obamka” ice cream has been produced for sale so far. The factory will keep the product based on the reaction of local consumers.

The Politrussia.com website reported that local residents have already been discussing the new product on social networks, suggesting a number of new polically-inspired brands, such as “Little Erdogan” and “Little Merkel.” The “Erdogan” is to be caramel ice cream coated in milk chocolate and the “Merkel” is to be vanilla ice cream coated in white chocolate, evening-kazan.ru reported.

    1. Probably. They are planning a Merkel too. The whole political lineup. My problem will be wanting to have one of each just to say I bit the heads off of each of them.

      1. Just don’t try the Clinton one or anything with scripts related to Hillarious – that can be poisonous or toxic.

        p.s. Generally i think that Obamka is not very good name b\c the ice-scream is made from natural-milk – that is scripted on pack. So for true Obamka ice-cream they should use dried skimmed milk loads of palm oil and artificial transfats and corn syrup instead of sugar. 😉

        About Merkel case imho HALAL mutton sausage would fit much better than and ice-cream )))
