"It's time for tasteball!"

General Tso's Chicken (which Strong Bad pronounces as "General Tao") was first seen in the email ghosts, when Strong Bad and The Cheat searched for ghosts in Strong Badia and found a rotten carton of Chinese food discarded by The Cheat. They thought it was haunted, but it turned out it was just grody and rotten. Later, it appeared as an obstacle to avoid in the Awexome Cross game. It then turned up as one of the Mount RidesPlace USA Mascots, named "Ryan S." after Ryan Sterritt and played by Homsar.

A Chinese food dish appeared in big white face as one of the many items that can be topped upon The Poopsmith's cake by clicking on it. Since this food was not seen with the General Tso box, it is debatable as to whether this is a legitimate appearance or not.

General Tso's Chicken is a real-world chicken dish that is staggeringly popular in today's American Chinese restaurants. The proper pronunciation is "Tsuo", though many regional variants, including "Tao", exist.

General Tso's Chicken is one of Strong Badia's Seven Elemental Spirits along with snake seen on the national flag, the Painting of a Guy with a Big Knife, the Fish Wearing a Fro Wig, and the British Distance Runner (the last two of which combined together to ultimately create the Bear holding a Shark).

Bubs also grinds a whole box of General Tso's Chicken (among other things) into a sausage casing in One Two, One Two.

A similar take-out box appears in Dangeresque Roomisode 1, but has a different design on the front.
