A Rose by Any Other Name

avocadoAccording to Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet – 1594), “a rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” unless it’s not actually a rose, that is.

Unfortunately, when it comes to avocados, we have a problem here. More specifically, guacamole. You see, Kraft is calling a green dip it makes “guacamole.” However, this dip is in fact made out of soy bean oil, corn syrup and green food coloring. Well, let me not exaggerate, 2% of its ingredients are made up of avocado.

Brenda Lifsey, of California has filed a lawsuit against Kraft Foods Inc., because it is making a fake food and calling it guacamole. Hats off to Brenda!
