The food business in Nigeria is steady booming, and it should because Nigerian food is amazing. But I can’t help but think about some foods that are obviously taking advantage of this and scamming us. I’ll call them out.
If you approach a “plate” of Nkwobi for the first time thinking you’ll get an endless supply of meat, because the plate looks deep, you’ll be disappointed because you’ll soon realize that the food actually starts from the top of the wooden contraption. Scam!
Is asun goat meat sprinkled with onions, or onions sprinkled with goat meat? Absolutely important question.
3. Cinema Popcorn
This is how popcorn works: You put heat on corn, then you throw in some sugar, and some butter and you have popcorn. That’s how the people in the streets make it. That’s also how the cinema people make it. So why is cinema popcorn so darn expensive??
4. Point and Kill
Point and Kill sellers play on the murderous desires of man to gain profit. Other than that, there’s no reason for catfish to be so expensive.
5. Peppered Snails
Snails will literally come to your doorsteps and lay there. If you try to chase them, they won’t run. If you try to kill them, they won’t resist. Why are peppered snails so expensive?
