American Food…Arabic Letters

When I arrived in Oman I was immediately fascinated by how many foreign (particularly American and British) food products they have and also very excited to see all of the labels rewritten into Arabic script. The transliterations are sometimes slightly off but it’s fun to see what kinds of liberties the designers take with the letters in order to make them resemble the English logos.

I’ve been collecting pictures of especially cool ones for awhile and here are some of my favorites!

    I am feeling, like I am right there with you. I loved looking at the food court and the liberties that they take with the advertising of our products. The colors are so bright and crisp. Enjoy !!! I love reading your posts. Bubbie and Zadies friend, Sally

    Oh well, no kosher restaurants written in Hebrew.
    Thanks Miriam.
