Above is a product picture for “Chocolate Erotic Penis Candies” from bachelorette.com, a bachelorette party supply company. The product itself is pretty self explanatory and somewhat interesting – it’s simply chocolate shaped to look like penises. What’s more interesting, however, is the product descrption you’ll find on their website.
The first part is pretty standard and what you would expect to find in an item description for penis shaped candies:
Chocolate Erotic Penis Candies will add flair to your bachelorette party snack table. Penis-shaped party favors are always a big hit at bachelorette parties, and the Chocolate Erotic Penis Candies are a tiny treat that will amuse and charm your guests.
So I can kind of agree with this first part of the description…a bunch of girls giggling when they are snacking on some chocolate penis candies at a bachelorette party. However, the second part of the description gets more interesting:
Chocolate Erotic Penis Candies are a great choice for an African American bachelorette. It is hard to find bachelorette party items for black women to enjoy.
WHAT!? Penis shaped candies are a great choice for African American bachelorettes? Where did they come up with that? Why do African American bachelorettes like penis shaped candy? Is it because they like penises or is it because like African Americans chocolate is also black in color? Without any additional explanation I can only conclude the following:
- If you are an Asian or Caucasian bachelorette you would not enjoy snacking on penis candies as much as black bachelorettes
- Black bachelorettes enjoy penis-related items more than bachelorettes of other races
- Black bachelorettes are hard to shop for
In case you don’t believe anyone would write a product description like that (or in case the website changes the description) I have included a screen shot of the description:
Yeah, I think this pretty racist and un-called for, but at the same time it definitely makes typically boring product descriptions much more interesting. Imagine if Amazon started doing product descriptions like this:
