Check out this lime juice I bought. I bought it years ago but held on to the label, intending to blog my astonishment.

It’s named after an area of Italy, but the limes were grown in Peru, bottled in Switzerland, imported via New Jersey and consumed in Arizona. I’m a little envious of these well-traveled limes. They’ve had an impressive journey!

To this I have to say: Really? I live hours from some of the best Citrus farms, and this is the best way to get something as simple as lime juice?! I just went shopping again and bought some slightly more local Mexican limes, which still had an impressive journey, but at least they didn’t cross the Atlantic twice (and I suspect a little of the Pacific as well, ’til the Panama canal).
