Pizza served with Mexican slang causes stir in U.S. border states

Yahoo! National News - Sun, 03/23/2014 - 10:57

A jalapeno-topped pizza called La Chingona is seen in an undated handout photo courtesy of Pizza PatronBy Lisa Maria Garza DALLAS (Reuters) - Even before the first pie is delivered, a jalapeño-heavy pizza with a Mexican slang name has produced chuckles among Spanish speakers in U.S. border states and an advertising ban by broadcasters who say the moniker could get them fined. The new dish called "La Chingona," which can be translated most politely as "badass" but also interpreted as a more offensive profanity, has upset some franchise owners of the Pizza Patrón chain who refuse to put it on their menus. "It's a colloquial Mexican term that's used very commonly among our core customers, which is a Mexican-born, Spanish-speaking customer, in part of their everyday lifestyle," said Andrew Gamm, brand director at Pizza Patrón, based in Texas and located in states with large Hispanic populations including California, Arizona and Florida. The stakes are high and growing for the Latino market in places like Texas, which has a $1.4 trillion economy and where Hispanics account for nearly 40 percent of the population.
