Filipino Americans To Picket Bon Appétit Magazine’s New York Headquarters

IMG_6719.PNGNEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Bon Appétit is an American food and entertaining magazine published monthly. It is headquartered in New York City.

Today, a coalition of Filipino American organizations throughout the country announced that it will stage a week-long picket in front of the magazine’s New York office.

At issue? The Filipino halo-halo, a unique and traditional snack akin to the Hawaiian shave ice.

In a recent article, “Ode to Halo-Halo,” the magazine re-invented the Filipino sweet delicacy by substituting its ingredients with gummy bears.

That didn’t sit well with the Pinoys (slang for Filipino), so they are staging a protest to demand that Bon Appétit recall all copies of the issue where the gummy bear halo-halo was featured.

Don’t mess with the Filipinos. Especially with their halo-halo!
