Copyright infringement tastes like cheap chocolate
While waiting to get my haircut, I was browsing the candy section of a next door Asian market. All of a sudden, I saw semi-familiar faces. Is that the Master Chief? Hey, that’s the Norrath girl and Taki from Soul Calibur! Well, badly photoshopped versions of them anyway.
I looked at the back and the Choco Fighters are a product of the Philipines. Since it was only a dollar, I had to buy this piece of delicious (at least I hoped so) copyright infringement
Along with the characters I mentioned above, we also get Spawn, one of the girls from Final Fantasy XII, Ryu Hayabusa, a dude who I think is from Contra, and a bunch of Dynasty Warriors/Samurai Warriors characters.
Oh and there are stickers! Yay!
On the back of the sticker sheet is the logo of Choco Fighters. Look familiar?
How do they taste you ask? Well…the ingredient list says chocolate, milk, sugar, and peanuts. My taste buds say, chalky something that has chocolate/peanut residue. I couldn’t finish a whole one. Aki gave it a valiant effort, but didn’t finish either.
