China's Top 10 Fake Foods

(Image Link)

Even though China has contributed all kinds of good things to the world, from fireworks to pasta, the country has become known as the home of fake- fake products, fake companies and the place to go when you want an imitation product made for cheap.

Usually this fakery is limited to valuable goods like electronics and fashion accessories, but China is apparently also home to some ingeniously inedible fake foods.

There are street vendors peddling cement chunks in walnut shells, which are wrapped in paper so they don’t rattle around, fake rice made out of potatoes and plastic, and fake eggs made out of various chemicals and gelatin. Oh the lengths people will go to just to make a buck!

I couldn't agree with you more about Nestle rcxb, and I haven't bought a Nestle product for years. I also had pretty much the same reaction in regards to the rice. It seems like their economy is so screwed that making a few more cents here and there is enough to justify making and selling these fake foods. What really blows me away is how much time and effort they're putting in to faking these foods, don't they know that time is money?!

I could understand fakes of expensive foods (walnuts, almonds, avocados, etc), but RICE? Seriously? When rice is significantly more expensive than plastic, there's something horribly wrong with your economy.

And while China deserves its bad rap, let's not forget that reliable old Nestle is killing close to a million babies in poor countries every year, with it's falsely advertised and unsterile baby formula. They get condemned by the UN and NGOs, then get convicted of wrongdoing by various international courts about every 10 years. Immediately afterwards, they claim the behavior was just a sad mistake from the distant past, then continue doing what they've always been doing, killing babies for more profit, until they get sued (and convicted) once again... This cycle has been going on since the 1970s. If you're buying any Nestle products, you're supporting their baby-murder-for-profit money-making scheme.
