Made in New York City?!!!

Remember those Pace Picante Sauce commercials with cowboys out on the range complaining that there salsa was terrible, and reading the bottle, only to discover there beloved Mexican salsa is made in that bastion of whiteness called "New York City". Well, I never understood that, as there are probably as many Mexicans in New York as wherever Pace salsa is actually made. (The commercials originally said "New Jersey", but New Jersy went crying to the teacher and said Pace was being mean, so it go changed.) Unbelievably YouTube doesn't have this commercial in their library. Well, Pace, I can beat that. One would not expect Japan to have really authentic Mexican food, and it doesn't. This is the brand of corn chips that I buy. And they are less than brilliant. But they are imported...from Belgium. Excuse me? Belgium? Made in Belgium? (said with the same incredulity as the cowboys). Belgium makes the best beer, best chocolate and best waffles in the world. But they are not known for their corn chips, and never will be.

Did you buy those at Aeon? I just bought a couple bags of those the other day, sure there made in NJ but I'll take what I can get at this point.
