Had my taste buds burnt off years ago, HOT! [SIZE="1"]Literally![/SIZE]

Got loads of this, is nationwide.Lovely stuff too!

Might be worth adding where the deal is available - only the review tab lets us know :thumbsup:

If anyone knows it AR Veals in Soton had 6 jars for 99p

hope people realise " kaffir " is a very offensive word to the black people of south africa, being topical with the world cup being held there.
Also means " infidel " in the islamic texts.
Not dissing the deal here, but realise what you are buying, there would be uproar if something was racially labelled on say a tin of beans.

Checkout en.wikipedia.org/wik…ime - I can certainly see your point, Sharwood's may have to rethink this one or use an alternative spelling.

Indeed: "The Oxford Companion to Food (ISBN 0-19-211579-0) recommends avoiding the name kaffir lime and instead using makrud lime because kaffir is a white Afrikaner racial slur for blacks meaning "infidel", from the Arabic "kafir" that Portugese explorers used for the native Africans. Kafir was from the Semitic K-F-R meaning "to cover." It is a derogatory term still and several alternate names such as Thai, Makrut, Wild, or Asian lime are used to avoid causing offense.[1]"

Could it be that Sharwood's have seen the error of their ways and are flogging this cheap as quickly as possible to relabel/rebrand? - Have also edited title.

it is also available in Home Bargains Cleveleys Lancs so presumably nationwide

Saw it in Northampton today

Banned

definitely nationwide - well impressed that the politically correct crowd have managed to latch onto something other than eggs and chickens. If they're a good deal, you can count me in for cans of honky baked beans...

Agree, but the word is also offensive, to non Muslims
