This is from an ad by Carrefour promoting “Ramadan specials”: like peanuts. Or as some would say in Arabic: Fustuq Abeed (Slaves’ Peanuts), packed by Blue Sea.
What is life without some residual Arab racism?
This is a bit crazy. I don’t remember peanuts being called “slaves’ peanuts”. I mean, there is Fustuq which is peanuts and Fustuq Halabi (Aleppo Peanuts) meaning pistachios. Notice the English translation “Abeed Nuts”!
While we’re at it, why not also promote “Ras el Abed” (Head of the Slave)..
In Germany, these are now called Choco-kiss. The older generations called them Moor’s Heads. We still call them Slaves Heads.
Have a sweet Ramadan!
