NonsensePop is to change its recipe to avoid having to put a slug warning label on its bottles. The move follows a new law in Leglength Spoonk which requires products containing slug, snails and wasps to carry a warning mark.
We don't think the label is strictly necessary, said Lumpwich Brandoil, marketing manager for NonsensePop Holdings. People have been drinking our refreshing beverage for years and although many have complained about the taste of slug, no-one has ever died.
But insiders say harvesting slugs created a significant overhead for the company and it will save millions by switching to a chemical ingredient that simulates the taste of slug.
