canada.com: Menchie’s gets its English spoons back

Menchie’s in Montreal gets its English spoons back | canada.com

Free spoons offered by frozen-yogurt chain Menchie’s gained national attention after Quebec’s language watchdog launched an investigation into a complaint over plastic utensils engraved with a few words of English.

But the cutlery is once again available to customers pending the verdict from the inspectors.

The Office quebecois de la langue francaise insisted on Friday that no demands were made for the spoons to be removed — and blamed “certain media” for blowing things out of proportion.
