A Manchester couple vacationing in Washington D.C. has revealed that the pair will not be smuggling any condoms back with them to England. On a last-minute shopping spree in the CVS Pharmacy in Dupont Circle, the British pair snubbed America’s “most trusted” Trojan condoms, stating “we wouldn’t buy them, because we don’t know the brand.”
According to the couple, most residents of the U.K. prefer Durex-brand condoms.
“They are a hell of a lot cheaper here, and we do try to take a lot of stuff back with us, but we’re definitely not taking these.”
Millions of British tourists flock to the U.S. each year to make the most of bargain prices, but research by Washington City Paper suggests that few will be returning with suitcases full of condoms.
Nobody at Church and Dwight Co., the company behind the Trojan range, was reached for comment.
