Mr Simpkins, of Pontefract, West Yorkshire, said: “The lemon and lime are locked in what appears to be a carnal encounter. The lime, whom I assume to be the gentleman in this coupling, has a particularly lurid expression on his face.”
Seriously, y’all?? FWIW, I’ve never eaten or even seen these candies and have no views on their merits as sugary comestibles. But I can see the packaging, and while it does look weird, trippy, and vaguely creepy, I think Mr. Simpkins needs to get a grip. Also, I resent the gendered and heteronormative assumptions implicit in the latter half of his statement.
