Racist or Not Racist: Negrita Candy

As a candy connoisseur, I enjoy only the finest in questionably racist sweets. Negrita is an Italian chocolate-covered croccantino candy, which is a kind of toffee with hazelnuts and almonds. The term "negrita" alone doesn't have any literal racial connotations, although that packaging is probably going to raise some eyebrows.

What do you think LOA: Racist or Not Racist? Would your opinion change if the packaging remained the same but the candy was called Questi Noci ("Deez Nuts") instead?

Questionable. I wouldnt eat them unless i was fed them by a young prostitute paid for by my handlers so that i could deny sleeping with her afterwards.

Question is, if you ever went to Australia, would you eat Coon cheese?
