Another Food Fraud.

A couple of items: Tomorrow starts the Glacier National Park report.

When I was in Montana, they named a town for me. I was hono(u)red until I found out that they incorrectly spelled my name. “Kila”!  I want my 10 bucks back that I paid them.

Now for today’s subject. Recently I exposed a fraud in beer labeling. Well, I found another. Knowing my weakness for hot sauce to go on my green beans, I was given a bottle of “Montana” hot sauce.

SAM_0883I’m always willing to taste hot sauces from different sources. It even had little factoids about the state of Montana on the bottle.

SAM_0882All this is true. What’s the fraud? It’s in the small print.

I was 1400 miles (2250 km) away from home and got an exotic bottle of hot sauce that was produced in a place that is less than a 45 minute drive from my house. I suppose that the Delaware and Hawaii versions come from the same vat-only the misleading label is changed. The worst part of this is that it’s sold near St. Mary’s in Glacier National Park. Collect all 50? I suppose it’s all the same stuff. Maybe I should go to Goodyear and get the other 49 for a complete set. Then again, maybe not. The only complete thing in that case would be a complete imbecile who bought 50 bottles of the same overpriced stuff with 50 different labels. Fool me once…but not 50 times. My peeps didn’t raise a stupid terrier.

  1. Someone’s gotta keep em honest, nice work!

  2. Bwahahahahahahaha. It figures right. Well it does.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

  3. I bet that there are more than 50 idiots that have their kitchen packed with that crap and proudly show it to visitors just to let them know they’ve been to all those states, when in fact they ordered them from eBay. I met someone who would order Starbucks mugs from eBay from all cities around the world. Then he would lie and tell people he was in those cities.
    Sad.

    • That’s personal fraud. That person probably could BS his way out of an embarrassing situation if he met someone who actually knows one of the places on the mug because he’s had a lot of practice lying.

  4. Are all 50 sauces made in AZ? I would buy them. At least your sauce is still an american thingy. Remember my bavarian beer, made in china, bought in france :o) (it was great to clean or house plants)

  5. “My peeps didn’t raise a stupid terrier.” Maybe you were born smarter than your peeps. They fell for the fraud. But nobody can pull a fraud on you Kyla you are a connoisseur of all things.

  12. […] Then there was the geographical fraud. […]
