Kiwis angry about Eskimo candy controversy

By Chris Purdy
Associated Press Writer

New Zealand’s high commissioner in Ottawa, Canada, is disappointed her fellow Kiwis are angry at a Canadian Inuk woman who raised concerns about the brand name of a marshmallow candy popular in the southern island nation.

Kate Lackey notes that people in New Zealand are as loyal to the colorful “Eskimos” treats as Canadians are to Tim Hortons coffee. But rude radio comments and online calls for the 21-year-old tourist to head back to Canada are not acceptable, she said.
