I called the Hunt's Corporation and actually got a human.
I was informed that sales were so low in south Florida that stores no longer stocked it.
Confused, I asked if they had any idea why it was such a slow seller in south Florida.
The nice lady on the other end of the phone informed me that it was because most of the people in Miami/Dade spoke Spanish as their first language.
I asked "What does that have to do with not buying Manwich Sauce?"
She responded " 'J' is pronounced like 'H' in Spanish. Nobody wants to be seen with cans that tell the neighbors that they eat 'SLOPPY HOES' "
Nothing to do with cannibalism then?ReplyDelete
Actually, the sandwich was invented at a Havana, Cuba bar named "Sloppy Joe's".ReplyDelete
And I was going to volunteer to drop a case off when I go to florida this winter.......ReplyDelete
Should re-label "Sloppy Jose's"ReplyDelete
