This had recently come to my attention. It seems the Chinese can't make up their mind about translating the name of a certain tropical fruit (hence the category, 'Off Tropic') as 'bango' or 'mango'.
Assuming they were released simultaneously, someone doesn't know how to do the transliteration properly.
I feel like this would make excellent collector's items... just to own a bag of dried bango on your shelves. But the best part of all this was the comment from Language Log:

The only way to know for sure is for Language Log readers in China to keep an eye open for which packages continue to show up during the coming months: bango, mango, or both bango and mango — or maybe pango.
