Blog: Dean Best"Erotic store" falls foul of food rules

Dean Best | 14 November 2007

It seems Europe’s health officials are getting a little over-zealous in their quest to make sure we all know exactly what is in the food we buy.

Although, when I say “we”, I mean those who like to add a little "spice" to their lives.

Health officials in Norway paid a surprise visit to the country’s largest erotic store and told the outlet to change the labelling on products to comply with local health rules.

Labelling on products like candy cuffs and, ahem, penis pasta had to be marked with a Norwegian label listing all the ingredients in the products.

"We were a bit surprised to have the food safety authority on inspection. Food is not really our core product," Kjersti Antonsen, a sexual adviser in the store, reportedly told Norwegian tabloid VG.

Of course, we should all applaud Norway's food inspection officials for the, er, dedication they obviously show to their work.

But I'm not sure visitors to the store are that concerned about the additives in the chocolate body paint.
