A huge drama is going on in Thailand right now, all thanks to a certain vendor who recently started selling sausage and cheese waffle that shaped like a penis.
Ketnita Prasertsomboon is the Thai woman responsible for the crude treats. Her waffle stand which is called Pho Hai Ma (From My Dad) was sold at Bangkok’s Indy Market since early August, and since then, the phallic food has become a viral item in Bangkok and also on social media.
“Some people told me that I’m doing something obscene and un-Buddhist. I got a bit stressed, but I didn’t fight back. I just want people to view it as a snack,” said Ketnita as quoted by Khaosod English.
The waffle has also gotten the attention of Thai celebrity chef Yingsak Chonglertjetsadawong who claimed that the product “is inappropriate and a bad example for the youth.”
“From my time in the food industry, I never thought I would encounter food shaped like genitalia,” Yingsak Chonglertjetsadawong said.
“Would you buy this for your parents? Would you put this in a monk’s alms bowl? If a girl aged 7 or 8 was eating it on the street, is that something you’d want to see?” she continued.
The penis-shaped waffle is sold at THB39, and come with sauces like ketchup, mayonnaise, strawberry, blueberry, and chocolate.
