Have you ever heard of scorched rice? No? How about “tutong na sinaing”?

This is too common in Filipino homes, especially when you forgot to turn down the fire on the stove while cooking rice.

Did you know that in a store in the United States (US), this is being sold at $7.58 (AED 27.84)?

Nana Aba Anamoah, a Ghanian media personality, shared a photo of a well-packed scorched rice sold at a store in Littleriver, Turnpike, Alexandria, Virginia.

Anamoah shared that they call this “kanzo” in Ghana. She somehow finds it amusing that it got a fancy name.

Other Twitter users also found it hilarious too, as some of them say they usually throw away the scorched rice.

Anamoah’s post had 813 retweets and 4,709 likes since it was uploaded on February 6.
