grapes

Kargrieg The Dwarf has sent this in with the following note:

My wife snapped this with her phone at Aldi (Belconnen Mall) earlier yesterday.

I can’t tell whether this counts as false advertising :-)

Technically that could be right. If the grape seed that was used to grow the grape vine in the USA was originally grown in Australia, then it is an ‘”Australian Grape’… :oP

Perhaps they become Australian grapes once they clear customs? At least they did tell you of their last embarkation country.

Shouldn’t the asking price be in Euro?

Country of origin is clear (don’t mind the methyl bromide sprayed on those grapes) and it is clear that the price is for 750 g (probably for the prepackaged portion).

Calling them Australian red seedless however would seem to be ‘misleading and deceptive’ I reckon.

What if they are an Australian variety of grapes grown in the US?

Does anyone know if there is indeed a variety of “Australian Red Seedless”?

Much easier when the variety is Red Delicious, Granny Smith etc

That is simply a typo.

It should say Austrian Red Seedless Grapes.

Doesn’t everything that arrives here by boat now automatically become an Australian as soon as it hits the shore????

Yeah, those grapes are here on a temporary protection visa.

Actually, it’s not as strange as it would initially seem. After all, the freestyle swimming stroke is called “the Australian crawl” in the USA.

If they are prepacked it is just the way things are.

Any dodgy rubbish grown in Chernobyl and ‘packed’ in Australia becomes an Australian product.

I thought everyone knew that. Buyer beware.

You may well be ripping consumers off. The Yugo Dinar is most likely stronger than the Euro ATM.. :P

Something vaguely relevant.

TETSUYA

Problem officer?

Yeah, but that is because we invented it. Like the english shower.
