Cookie sales in China aren’t zooming upward the way they used to be:

At Mondelēz distributors in China, there are piles of unsold Oreo and Chips Ahoy cookies. Why? China is in an economic slump. The brand is used to 25% sales increases every year, and increases are down to only 3% in the first quarter of 2013.

Aw. Quelle fromage.

Now if we find out they’ve been hoarding Mallomars — well, perhaps we should not go there.

    Men are from Mallomars, women are from Mallovenus.

    Are there Girl Scouts in China?

    So, is there a Chinese mother somewhere telling her child to eat his Oreos, because kids in America are having to make do with Great Value brand?
