Chocolate Covered Kiwi’s on a stick! (tutorial/recipe)

NOOO! Kiwis are an endangered bird you don’t ram them on a stick and dip them in chocolate!

Oh wait…. guys? Those are kiwifruit. that last part is very important. The birds were around and named first- the fruit was named after them for marketing reasons (and yes, fruit was an integral part of the name) as well being brown and fuzzy like the bird.

Every time you shorten the term 4 million people will look at you in horror and wonder why the hell you are hell bent on eating our national icon.

If wikipedia can get it right so can you:

Btw any of the original names for the fruit is fine too, just don’t call them kiwis. Our flightless nocturnal fuzzy bird thanks you.
