    Unbelievably, I have this packet in my cupboard right now. I’m going to mix it up tonight — counterclockwise! Disaster will surely ensue.

    Sounds like what they do in Harry Potter…

  3. bob_super says:

    Just add a counter-clockwise turn every 7 clockwise turns, that’s what JKR recommends.

      Until the Half-Blood Prince finds a better way to do it, that is.

    • Snape says:

      You dunderheads! Don’t you ever listen when I say clockwise? I WILL not have any more exploding cauldrons in my class!

  4. Hirayuki says:

    Yes, I saw that, too. It’s just for fun; there are a few whimsical touches on that company’s food labels.

    Captain James T. Kirk’s “Fizzbin Noodles and awesome sauce”

  6. Ethd says:

    It’s a witch’s brew. Stirring those things the wrong way can result in disastrous consequences. I mean, seriously, when is the last time you’ve seen a witch? I rest my case.

  7. Phikus says:

    And don’t forget to figure in the Coriolis effect!

    • jackie31337 says:

      Which brings up the question: do you have to stir it counterclockwise in the southern hemisphere? What if you live on the equator?

  8. Imaginatron says:

    Just imagine, just imagine what would happen if we stir counter-clockwise for too long….

    All hospital should have a big pot of Good Korma ready!

  9. Liz says:

    Nope, no one here with any sort of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder whatsoever. Why do you ask?

  10. Liz says:

    Or… let’s see, top of the pic says “taste from around the world right in your kitchen” , so we can imagine that somewhere in the world they only stir things clockwise, and if you stir counter-clockwise, you will not get an authentic taste “in your own kitchen”.

  11. FIRST says:

    FIRST ooooyeah, this made me want soup

  12. Rich says:

    I think the point of this is that you need to always stir in one direction. Rather than try to explain that, they just picked one.

    • Kelsie says:

      That’s silly though. I can’t think of any food where it’s important to only stir in one direction, particularly if it’s only “occasionally.”

    • Schroduck says:

      A lot of cooking that involves milk/yoghurt/cream requires you only stir in one direction. Reversing the stirring causes the fat to curdle.

    • Bran says:

      Just learning how to cook, so never knew that. Thank you.

    • jackie31337 says:

      I’ve never heard of that before, and I do a lot of cooking, but I also realized that I almost always stir clockwise anyway. It just feels natural to me.

    • Hope says:

      I don’t think that’s true. I’ve been told that, but it doesn’t make any sense, and it’s never happened to me.

  13. Sarge says:

    What happens if I use a blender?

    • Lizard says:

      You should be cool, all the ones I’ve seen go clockwise, unless you’re in Australia then I don’t know…

  14. Goobertz says:

    Pad thai? Yes pl0x! nom nom nom

  15. Nelson says:

    Well, duh! Stirring counter-clockwise would UNSTIR it. …obviously!

  16. TheCannyScot says:

    Stirring counter-clockwise is OK, as long as you don’t have to go to Douglas County.

  17. ladyofargonne says:

    Obviously this is north of the equator. South of the equator it’s counter clockwise. You just can’t fight gravity.

  18. Mel says:

    Came in to leave a HP comment and realises there are tons already XDDD

  19. Senor says:

    But what if youre in the southern hemisphere, eh esse?

  20. anomaly says:

    It’s the Fung Shui of stir-fry.

  21. Kat says:

    And don’t you dare cross the streams.

  22. Rarf says:

    In Japan, it is a sin to clean rice counterclockwise. Possibly related?
