Chocolate bar Engrish

So, I saw this chocolate bar down at the 99 store (everything there is 99 yen before tax), and just had to pick it up because of the wonderful Engrish on it. ;)
The wrapper says:

There is no accounting for taste,
so choose your own.
Experiencing deliciousness
made me a slave to taste.

Whoever wrote this probably has no idea of the negative connotations of “There is no accounting for taste,” which would seem to insinuate that the customer is an uncultured idiot. ;) Not even remotely what they meant, I’m sure, but that’s one of the things that makes Engrish so charming and funny, right? ^_^
