More Food Ignorance: Bruschetta

Oh Jensen’s Orchard Bruschetta flavored chips, how I loathe thee. Well, not you specifically, rather more what you represent.

You see, Bruschetta is not the flavor combination of tomato, basil, and garlic, as your press kit would seem to indicate.

Bruschetta, my dear food conglomerate, is grilled bread rubbed with garlic. To everyone who knows the difference, it seems as if you’re selling toast-flavored chips.

And while we’re allowed to make mistakes from time to time, by furthering the SAME ignorance that others have already made, what you do is show a complete lack of respect and appreciation for the food to which you seek to sell.

I know, I know, I’m on the wrong side of a losing battle. I’m near the point where I will probably give in to what culture and consensus is dictating. But until I actually get to that point, I will yell, scream, and complain each time I see this mistake made.

Bruschetta is toast with topping. Grilled bread with an Italian-infuence spreadable. It is not a tomato, garlic, and basil salsa. Let’s stop this nonsense before it is too late.

(Oh and the bruschetta pasta sauce? It’s like they WANT me to have an aneurysm.)
