    What puzzles me the most about this is that the Chinese seems to correspond mostly to the Engrish.

    Do not eat do not know – is that like “don’t ask, don’t tell?”

    If you ate “Food For Thought” with “Do Not Eat Do Not Know,” would they cancel each other out?

    “Eat forget”? So that’s why Chinese food leaves you hungry again in a half hour.

    Story of my life…

    Ends up “Blame me not”.

    How they dance in the courtyard,
    Sweet and delicious sweat.
    Some eat to remember,
    Some eat to forget.

    If you cook “Moderate Hardness” long enough with some “Sweet and Delicious”, would it become soft?

    I eat, I forget
    I do not eat, I do not know
    So, should I eat or shouldn’t I?
    Now, that’s food for thought!

    Fragrant/Sweet and tasty
    Moderate texture (well the original is literal, but inelegant)
    It’s proper for young and old
    the aftertaste lasts for a long time
    If you haven’t eaten it you wouldn’t know,
    Having eaten it, it’s unforgettable,
    Having eaten it, you still want to eat
    If you don’t buy it the first time, blame you-
    If you don’t buy it the second time, blame me.

    What a masterwork! Du Fu and Su Dongpo would turn green from envy!

    Here’s what it really says:
    * Sweet & delicious
    * Tender
    * Good for all ages
    * You’ll remember the taste
    * If you don’t eat it, you won’t know how good it tastes
    * You won’t forget the good taste
    * You’ll want to continue eating it
    * If you don’t buy it the first time, that’s your fault
    * If you don’t buy it again, that’s my fault
