I am adding Hawaii as place, because it is a very common snack here, sold everywhere. 66.8.194.128 01:09, 1 October 2007 (UTC)Sark

Squid/cuttlefish[edit]

I find this claim, that there's no difference between the chinese words for "squid" and "cuttlefish", a little hard to believe. Anyone have a cite for it? Alvis 03:31, 30 June 2007 (UTC)

Try translating here: http://babelfish.altavista.com/tr It gives the same two Chinese characters. Badagnani 04:00, 30 June 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for looking for something. Babelfish isn't quite the authority I was hoping for, though. This just can't be right - how could China's marine biologists fucntion with the rest of the world's? Alvis 06:16, 30 June 2007 (UTC)
That's probably the common name. Chinese biologists have Chinese names that function as the equivalents to the Latin genus and species names. The way to check would be to check the zh:wiki pages for the various squid and cuttlefish articles, I suppose. Badagnani 06:46, 30 June 2007 (UTC)
How interesting--the names are different: zh:wiki article on cuttlefish zh:wiki article on squid Badagnani 06:48, 30 June 2007 (UTC)
There is a word for cuttlefish and squid. The "food name" does not change regardless. Benjwong 17:10, 30 June 2007 (UTC)

"The "food name" does not change regardless" ?? Are you joking? Or are you really Chinese? The Chinese terms for the two species are definitely DIFFERENT. --—Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.194.52.242 (talkcontribs)

It's really the same term in Chinese, and I can confirm it because I'm CHinese. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.126.75.181 (talk) 05:11, 22 September 2007 (UTC)
Please sign posts by adding four tildes after your post. He didn't say the species have the same name, he said the product is labeled with the same name regardless of whether squid or cuttlefish are used to produce it. Badagnani 16:31, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Chewing gum of the Orientals[edit]

This is a trivial article about a single slogan, but cultural significance of the food should be discussed in the article about the food. --Animalparty! (talk) 19:55, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

Support It seems like the content in Chewing gum of the Orientals would easily be explained in the context of Dried shredded squid. --Sotaque (talk) 04:00, 26 August 2017 (UTC)
Support "Chewing gum of the Orientals" is merely the slogan or tagline of one brand of this product. Kbseah (talk) 15:03, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
