Reminds me of the Kopi Luwak coffee.
Deep in the heart of the Sumatran jungle, where the roads are few and the people fewer, the stealthy Luwak roams free. This adorable cat burglar will make its way to coffee plantations when the crop is in season, using its superior senses to select only the choicest of coffee cherries. After digestion, these organic beans are gathered by hand from the rainforest floor and then taken by oxcart to an earthen kiln where they are gently roasted by a native coffee artisan.

I'm going to need this.

All natural vegetables grow on faeces. What's the problem?

Why I'm not suprised that this was from China.

LOL!  Apparently, you've never gone to your local garden center and bought a bag of manure to put under your tomato plants!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Thing is I have never paid that kind of money for any vegetable. Brilliant marketing though.
