7 Foods That Need To Really Step Up Their PR Game

September 25, 2020

PR is necessary — it is the only one thing that can make or mar a food’s reputation. And this is such a time where people can carry on a food slander without actually tasting the food itself. So, these foods need to do better if they don’t want to be wiped out of existence or become culinary pariahs.

1. Avocado

Avocado 101 - Benefits, Types, and Nutrition - Jessica Gavin

The PR for this one is a cross between good and bad. Half the time, you see people who argue that it is the best thing and some others who fight for it to be cancelled. Girl, rise and defend yourself.

2. Isi ewu

Seven Easy Steps To Preparing Isi Ewu (Goat head) — Guardian Life — The  Guardian Nigeria News – Nigeria and World News

This one has good PR. But the wooden bowl they serve it in is a scam. It better change its game before the secret is discovered.

3. Gbegiri

Yoruba Gbegiri Soup Recipe - How to cook Yoruba Gbegiri Soup!

This one is hiding under amala and ewedu to feel good. Weyrey dey disguise. Something that people will soon start abandoning when they see that it is a dependent soup.

4. Starch

How to make Starch – Usi (Swallow for Banga) | Dobby's Signature

This sweetheart is not blowing its trumpet hard enough and it’s upsetting me and my homegurls.

5. Bounty.

Bounty (chocolate bar) - Wikipedia

Personally, I love Bounty. I like how it is one thing on the outside and another thing on the inside. But the chocolate itself needs to hire itself a good PR manager so I don’t have to keep hiding my face when they ask Bounty eaters to come out.

6. Semo.

7 Nigerian Swallows With Bad PR

This one’s reputation is in the trash already. It will take a miracle to revive it. Here’s our interview with it: Interview With Semo: “My Slander Is So Forced”

7. Pupuru.

There’s very little that is known about this Ondo delicacy and I don’t like how this information is being withheld from the public. I tried pupuru once and my life was never the same.

One year ago, we left Nigeria for an 80-day adventure across West Africa. Something is coming. Unshared stories. New perspectives. Limited series. 10 episodes.
