My family and I were having dinner at a local mall, and I decided to have ice cream for dessert. At the Laura Secord's I noticed that the name of my favorite ice cream -- the one with the rich, deep red cherries -- had been changed from Burgundy Cherry to Bordeaux Cherry. On commenting on this to the cashier, she told me that it was originally called "black cherry," but the store used to get a number of nasty comments about racism, and changed the name to "Burgundy Cherry." They STILL were getting complaints at this, so they changed it again the "Bordeaux," which hopefully had absolutely no connotations to anyone. Jeepers. Next time I'll order "cherry ice cream of colour."
