My Pote/Mon Pote
Updated: Sep 22, 2022
Partaking in a snack on your own, or sharing one with your friend; this is shown perfectly with the Calbee brand "MY POTE". The brand name is an abbreviation of "My Potato in katakana Japanese. To the eyes of a french speaker however, its meaning changes to "my friend" in french slang. The apparent relationship presents the statement that wether its by yourself or with a friend, snacks are somthing that ring people togather; crossing even language barriers.
