Supermarkets stop selling pseudo reindeer ‘reindeer ice cream’

Albert Heijn 'reindeer' ice

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

Reindeer ice not looking like anything removed from the shelves

Today, 12:39

Albert Heijn

a big Dutch supermarket business

has removed chocolate reindeer ice cream from their shelves after complaints that the ice did not look like a reindeer. According to a spokesman, a few dozen people complained.

The supermarket group has looked at the ice and has come to the conclusion that it really does not look like a reindeer. “We do not want to disappoint children who tomorrow after the Christmas dinner might get some ice cream.”

The only thing vaguely reindeer-like about this ice is the red ‘nose’, somewhat reminiscent of the song Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

This holiday season, people all over the world will celebrate Christmas by expressing sentiments of tolerance and brotherhood. They will exchange gifts and cards, and try to smile a little more, in the distant hope that their individual benevolence might somehow extricate the world, at least somewhat, from the mire it is lodged in: here.
