Here’s a great Engrish article from a newspaper in the 1970’s. I think they eventually replaced Snatch with Woody chocolates. 

Ah the 70’s – listening to Steely Dan and eating some Snatch…

    Just got a note from Jim who submitted the image:

    “Seems to me the article was from the Stars and Stripes Japan (or might have been Pacific) from about 1977 or so.”

    The sophistocates won’t eat Snatch, but they’ll eat Woody? Wow…

    Not much stranger than a line of mens cosmetics and perfume called

    Until a few years ago, Singapore had a toothpaste called DARKIE which has now been politically corrected toi DARLIE and the picture of the dark gentleman with the shiny teeth and the striped hat removed.

    We lived in Japan at that time and saw this advertised in the stores.
    The ad read “Eat my Snatch” I remember rolling on the floor laughing.
    No wonder they took it off the market quick smart. Too many Yanks in Japan at the time.

    Kids think Snatch is a great after school treat!
