The Fire brand line of canned coffees from Kirin beverages (a sister company of Kirin Brewery that sells soft drinks) has been on sale for quite some time now. It’s a catchy name – “Fire” – but some of the combinations are kinda funny. Take Fire Ice Coffee for example:
I wonder if the irony ever occurred to one of the product managers at Kirin.
It’s amazing the variety of Fire coffee products that one can come up with:
Listed above is Fire Sky Max, Fire Seattle Roast, Fire Gold Rush, Fire Rough-Ground Beans, Fire With Milk and Fire Mocha 100%.
Finally, sure to burn the roof of your mouth is ‘Super Fire”!

Okay, well the intent is clear, but still I can’t seem to work up an appetite for these biscuits… Is it just me?
Found in Japan.
Introduction our new shirt- Get a happy!!
Inspired by the great reaction we received from this Engrish post a couple of days ago, we had no choice but to spread the happy further with our newest shirt. Printed as always on high quality American Apparel (made in the USA).
Use this coupon for 10% off all merchandise at the Engrish.com Store*:

There are rip-offs of US brands all over the world, but maybe one of the biggest is Crest toothpaste. ‘Crust’ can be found in Africa and parts of the middle east, whereas ‘Crend’ is from Iran.
Not sure that I want any Crust on my teeth, but it should also be noted that with Crend, you are assured that it is good “For long lasting tooth”. No wonder Iran’s Ministry of Health so enthusiastically approves!

This was submitted to me multiple times last July/August by readers in Korea. Lotte – Korea’s largest department store – was keen on starting a “Summer Beach Festival” but it kinda turned out wrong…
This is a case where the Engrish sum is greater than the parts. These bits of Engrish were all found at one shop in Narita Airport (the main international airport for Tokyo).
