How would you like it if at your local deli you were offered Bald Eagle flavored potato chips instead of salt and vinegar?

Sounds like a crazy question, right?  However, one chip manufacturer from Down Under is offering Kangaroo and Emu flavors.  Complaints have been pouring in to Australia’s Advertising Standards Bureau.  The Sydney Morning Herald reported the “BBQ Coat of Arms” chips were degrading for native wildlife and sent the wrong message to Australian children.

One person expressed, “It implies that it is perfectly OK to kill kangaroos and emus just for fun!”

The manufacturer defends its product, saying the snack celebrates the country’s heritage.

The Advertising Standards Bureau investigated the complaints against the new chips but decided not to take any action.
