Store Ad: Hams 'Delicious for Chanukah'

NEW YORK (AP) - This was REALLY not kosher. A grocery store in Manhattan made a food faux pas, advertising hams as "Delicious for Chanukah."

Chanukah, an alternate spelling for Hanukkah, is the eight-day Jewish holiday that began Tuesday evening, and hams as well as pork and other products from pigs can't be eaten under Jewish dietary laws.

A woman who saw the mistake over the weekend at the Balducci's store on 14th Street took pictures of the signs and posted them on her blog.

Jennifer Barton, director of marketing, told The Associated Press on Thursday that the signs were changed as soon as the error was noted.

She issued an apology on the company Web site, saying the company would be reviewing its employee training.


OOPS!

Something about that sentence disgusts me to my core. Ever think that maybe the internet is a bad thing?

why hate the messenger? - i think it's a great thing that someone was able to spot this and photograph it. If I understand this right - it's not like she's a complainer, she was having fun with the story - just as we are right here.

I don't like the starbucks-loitering on your laptop, semiemployed "I have an opinion!" connotation of the word "blogging", but I sometimes love the results of this kind of superdemocratized media.

I do think that it's rather stupid that in 2007, that humans still find reasons to object to certain foods. There is an interesting theory that Kosher and Halal foods are more about cornering an economic market for the producers of those foods.

I love the irony of slow roasting a Jew with a nice Bacon Fat glaze.

Mmm Mmm Mmm good.

Bacon tastes gooood. Pork chops taste goooood.



It's almost 2008 and lots (maybe even a majority) of Jews don't keep kosher.

By Popular Demand: If you're tickled by the Ham for Chanukah pic, visit my store at cafepress.com, where you can get it on a mug, or on greeting cards (stock up now for next year!).

Ewwww...... :icon_conf
