My personal ban on Chinese products is working well for me.

So now the Commies are trying to ban Taiwanese goods. Despicable. Those pineapple farmers relied on this trade.

More Taiwan Pineapple cakes for Japan then! Japanese should make a pledge to eat one pineapple product per day to help their friends in Taiwan.

Time for the US to step up and recognize Taiwan as an independent nation. Japan will follow right after them.

Good for you. Everyone is now doing the same. Just make sure that next cellphone or PC you buy is Japanese or US made (do your research on ALL the components).

Taiwanese pineapples are great; I prefer them to the Hawaiian ones. They are smaller and sweeter and tend to be harvested closer to ripeness.

All organic, no GM unlike the USA "Dole" ones grown in Hawaii.

Pineapple is great for cocktails. It’s going to be a great summer.

Taiwanese pineapples are superior to U.S pineapples I agree with Fighto! and non GM.

Pineapple cakes, pineapple fried rice, pineapple cocktails all around!

Communists aren't trying to ban Taiwanese goods. The Beijing regime is trying to financially hurt Taiwan.

But to help out, I'll gladly eat the godless spiky husk if it helps our friends in Taiwan.

I try not to buy either Chinese or US goods and components. Not an easy task, especially with the former.

Good. The more pineapples, the better.

WTF WTO?

This is again and still another example of China flouting the very rules that others follow and that have made them rich.

I can't imagine a delicious dish of subuta without a few chunks of sweet pineapple. If it came from Taiwan I would be just as happy as I would be with domestic fruit.

I’m all for supporting Taiwan

I will tell Mrs. Affist to buy a few at the market here, and then make sure I order the Hawaiian Pizza from Domino's loaded with pineapple on top!
