Meanwhile In China – Fake Walnuts Filled With Rocks are selling well.. apparently!

China is famous for manufacturing counterfeit goods, but this is a little excessive.

At first glance, these walnuts look like normal, everyday unshelled walnuts. But once broken in half, instead of a delicious, nutty treat, unsuspecting buyers will be unpleasantly surprised to find a rock sandwiched between the walnut shells.

 The sale of rock walnuts is becoming so prevalent in China that there is even a popular video on YouTube titled, “How to spot a fake walnut and the return of making fake walnuts.” According to the video, a fake walnut is dry and won’t make a sound when cracked.

What will those ingenious counterfeiters come up with next?
