Photos of these phallic bags of drinks had caused quite a stir.

According to The Thaiger, the cafe had shared the post with this caption.

“Don’t stare at it for too long! You won’t be able to bear it! Please, don’t be too serious. Let’s have a laugh. When you have our drinks in hand… everyone will stare at you!”

However, the shop took the post down after it went viral, garnering close to 30,000 shares.

It also announced that it will discontinue the sale of drinks in the phallic bags as "it involves many sensitive issues", The Thaiger reported.

Here's a translation of their full statement:

“We have to apologise to all customers. We will not sell the [penis] bag anymore. It involves many sensitive issues. Thank you everyone for all your interest and support.”
