I bought this box of cookies in Seoul not because it looked delicious, but because its name cracked me up. Binch. Looks a lot like that other word that begins with “Bi” and ends with “ch.” There’s also something about that old English font that just screams “BI_CH!!” to me.
What’s strange is that its Korean name — if spelled phonetically into English — would be closer to “Bintz.” So whose idea was it to call it “Binch”? What came first, the English name or the Korean name? Did they know about the other B-word? WAIT A MINUTE, WAS IT INTENTIONAL?!!!
Those sneaky little marketing geniuses at Lotte, what are they up to???
