COUNTERFEIT FERRERO ROCHER BONBONS SEIZED


One of today's MSN.com headlines caught my eye. French officials seized 10 tons of bon bons that were fake Ferrero Rochers. They shipped into France from Turkey. That's 33,000 boxes of candy. That's $312,000 worth of yummy. Ferrero Rocher tested the fakes and declared them low quality imposters. The article says they will be destroyed.

The bonbons have been tested and are safe to eat. Can I sign up to help "destroy" them? People who commented on the article at http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28366872/ made a very good point - they should be handed out for free to the poor. Throwing away perfectly safe food when people are starving is plain stupid, almost selfish!

That's my two cents!
