Inflicting Confectionary Torture On Racial Stereotypes.

Inflicting Confectionary Torture On Racial Stereotypes. Courtesy of Venco, makers of that delightful Nederlander candy treat Dubbel Zout (coal-black licorice briquets covered in two layers of salt). Through the magic of Flash animation, you can now engage in that most demonic form of torture: Forcing-feeding questionable Dutch candy down the throats of ethnic minorities and watching their reactions. Something tells me the closest the Venco people have ever gotten to a "Mexicaan" is a Cheech & Chong movie.

dubbel zout is definitely an acquired taste. having dutch parents, i grew up with it in the house. i love it!

but one must be careful not to eat too many at one time. licorice is a natural laxative.

did you know some manufacturers also make triple salt? even i can't handle that much. gyaaah!

Also visit Dropland: 'Drop Land is an interactive art project, which integrates the audience with the Gil & Moti Homegallery and the shops, cafes and bars in the Witte de Withstraat, Rotterdam. The project is part of September in Rotterdam 2001 program en de Wereld van de Witte de With Festival. '

De website is somewhat incomprehensible, but if you are in Rotterdam on sept. 14, 15 or 16 it may be worth taking a look. Drop is one of our bestest inventions, I think. Or maybe chocoladehagelslag is...
