CALIFORNIANS BOYCOTT THE NEW YORK TIMES OVER PEAS IN GUACAMOLE

Guacamole with green peas? Eeeww!
Guacamole with green peas?  Hell no!

SAN FRANCISCO, California ( The Adobo Chronicles® ) – You’ve heard the phrase, “Don’t mess with Texas,” before. But Californians have just made one thing clear to The New York Times and to the world: “Don’t mess with Guacamole!”

California  avocado growers, taqueria owners, and guacamole fans criticized NYT for suggesting that people add English green peas to this  avocado classic.

A NYT article written by Melissa Clark  described the peas addition as “one of those radical moves that is also completely obvious after you taste it.”

Apparently, Californians disagree and have taken to social media to call for a boycott of NYT. In just the last 24 hours, the Times has seen a significant number of subscription cancellations for both its print and digital editions.

Even popular tortilla chip brands like Frito-Lay and Doritos have joined the chorus and are reportedly adding a warning to their label and packaging: “Not to be eaten with anything that has green peas in it.”
