I feel insulted.

For me, the Philippine Government should lodge a nationwide protest against that company.

Tubag Bohol people, protesta ta...

Filipinos (snack food)
This entry is about the snack food named Filipinos. For the ethnic group from the Republic of the Philippines, see Filipino people.
 Artiach Filipinos dark chocolate biscuits as sold in Spain.Filipinos is the brand name for a series of biscuit snacks made by United Biscuits. In Spain and Portugal they are produced by United Biscuits Iberia and sold under the Artiach brand name. In the Netherlands they are sold and produced locally under the Verkade brand. [1]

The standard Filipinos snack is ring shaped and come in several varieties coated in either milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate. Milk or dark chocolate versions feature a light colored biscuit. White chocolate versions feature a dark brown biscuit. These can be purchased in large rolls. The dark and white chocolate versions are also available in the Filipinos GoPack or Mini Filipinos, a smaller loose packet of four biscuits.

Filipinos Agujeros (holes) are crisp doughnut hole sized balls coated in either dark or white chocolate.

Filipinos Bigsticks are crispy 20 cm (8 in) stick shaped snacks covered with puffed rice. These are coated in either dark or white chocolate.


Controversy

Protest
The government of the Philippines filed a diplomatic protest with the government of Spain, the European Commission, and then manufacturer Nabisco Iberia in 1999. The protest took offense with the use of the name "Filipinos", a term which can refer to people of the Philippines, to market cookie and pretzel snacks and demanded Nabisco stop selling the product until the brand name was changed.[2]

The resolution's author, Philippine Congressman Heherson Alvarez, claimed that the name of the cookie was offensive due to the apparent reference to their color, "dark outside and white inside". His resolution stated "These food items could be appropriately called by any other label, but the manufacturers have chosen our racial identity, and they are now making money out of these food items." [2] On August 26, 1999 former Philippine president Joseph Estrada called the brand "an insult".[2]

The protest was filed despite Foreign Secretary Domingo Siazon's initial reluctance on the matter. Siazon had reportedly said "he saw nothing wrong with the use of 'Filipinos' as a brand name, noting Austrians do not complain that small sausages are called 'Vienna sausages.'" [2]


National Historical Institute
The Philippine National Historical Institute has stated "The cookies were inspired by 'rosquillo' biscuits produced in Iloilo and Negros and the Spaniards added another twist by coating it with brown or white chocolate." [3][4]

I remember now... Filipinos are biscuits! Right!

Sweet and satisfying... eaten by Spanish and Portugese

But I take no offense.

I'm a Boholano. Whoah!

But hey, how many of us have not eaten an American for breakfast?
Or fried some French as in french fries?
Or dunk a Danish (pastry) in a cup of coffee?

Whats wrong here is that, this product is not a filipino product, isn't it? If it would be a filipino product then, its okey that its called filipinos. They should have ask a permission from the Republic of the Philippines before they used that name, if they didn't.

Quote
"dark outside and white inside".

Its really describing filipino people.  We are dark-skinned people but we have a good heart, thats why its white.. Hope we taste good too  :)
