But don't let the name deceive you. Apparently it's delicious
Now that it’s getting warm out, doesn’t a nice cold smoothie sound so nice and appetizing? Probably not a PooPoo smoothie though, right?
Well, that’s the name of Burger King China’s latest cold drink, Kotaku reports. But don’t let the name deceive you. Apparently, the PooPoo smoothie is quite delicious. Its Chinese name is something that roughly translates to “mango ice smoothie with blow up pearls cold beverage” which is a much more accurate description than “PooPoo.”
According to Kotaku:
The PooPoo* Smoothie is pretty much like a Taiwanese Boba Tea. It’s a mango flavored slushie with what tastes like lychee flavored “pulp pearls” on the bottom of the cup. It’s topped off with a swirl of soft serve vanilla ice cream. I asked for chocolate but the staff didn’t get the joke.
That sounds delightful, doesn’t it? But like, naming it the PooPoo smoothie will clearly affect sales in a very negative way. Maybe Burger King’s marketing team should have thought this one through a bit further.
