Remember Tabasco?

In the May/June issue, I was quite surprised to see no Tabasco included in your display of Louisiana foods and seasonings. How come? Tabasco is older than all those other things.

Ed. Reply: You are certainly correct about the importance of Tabasco. “Louisiana-Made” is an annual feature. Tabasco was featured in our May/June 2009 issue.



Kleinpeter: New Flavors

I have read and enjoyed all the articles about Louisiana-made products. As you know there have been several articles over the last few years. … I’ve been very disappointed that Kleinpeter Farms Dairy has not been mentioned in any of the articles. It’s definitely Louisiana-made and has expanded to several cities in the state from its home base, Baton Rouge. It has been in business since 1913 and recently started making delicious flavors of ice cream along with its good milk and dairy products. Thank you for allowing me to state my feelings on this omission.

Ed. Reply: Kleinpeter Farms is certainly a worthy candidate for a future “Louisiana-Made” feature, though we have not ignored the dairy: It was featured in our January/February 2009 “Best Places to Work” article.
