A woman is suing Kraft for fraud over their guacamole. 
A food dip?  Fraud?

"If consumers read the fine print, they would discover that Kraft Dips Guacamole contains less than 2% avocado."  Shocked

response from Kraft: "We think customers understand that it isn't made from avocado," said Claire Regan, Kraft Foods' vice president of corporate affairs.  Huh

Maybe I don't understand because I'm not a customer Tongue

huh... Well, I'm not sure about a lawsuit, but I do think they are being dishonest.  They should probably have to call it "guacamole flavored dip", or something like that.

Since I grew up in southern california near plenty of avocado orchards, I despise any "guacamole" that isn't nearly pure avocado and generally any store bought guacamole at all.  (I know, I'm an avocado snob. Tongue)  It's so easy to make your own.

Here's my dad's super simple recipe:

mashed avocado
juice from half a lemon
a bit of finely chopped garlic and onion
salt to taste

mix it all up together and top with shredded cheese (cheese is optional).

you can also add chopped tomatoes and crushed red pepper, if you want.

This is indeed the tastiest classic (I hate that super-smooth, wrong-colored, grocery store stuff, too). I add in a little black pepper too along with the salt. And, since I hate the mushiness of tomatoes, but like the color, I always make sure the onion is a red one. I think the key is the chopped garlic. A lot of recipes leave it out, but it really is essential.

 Cheesy

IMO, anyone who is buying ready-made guac in the store DESERVES to get pseudo-avocado.  Hello?  How else do they think it stays green for weeks on end?

Blargh.

No wonder I don't buy processed foods.
