The Consulate General of Israel in Shanghai recently was surprised to discover on the shelves of a local supermarket chain a canned beverage called "The Jew's Ear Juice."


The drink is made of a black mushroom which does resemble a wrinkled ear.


Israel's Consul-General in Shanghai Jackie Eldan stressed that this was not a case of anti-Semitism, as Judaism is considered in China a synonym of success.


According to Eldan, the juice's manufacturer must have thought that linking it to the Jewish ear would be profitable.
