We got take-out pizza this evening from none other than Domino’s Pizza and I was mildly disturbed by their new ‘pledge’.
They proudly proclaim the provenance of their ingredients, as if it were a selling point. Apparently, their mozzarella comes from Wales, their hot peppers from Peru, their tomatoes from Portugal and their pineapple from Thailand.
Now, I don’t know about you, but that kinda weirds me out a little. I know that Domino’s are hardly a smalltime concern, but it would be lovely to think that they were thinking about food miles just a little bit.
I can’t believe that Peru is the closest place in the world that grows hot peppers and pineapples all the way from Thailand.
Possibly most laughable is the fact they make a traditionally Italian cheese in the principality.
Anyway, whatever the provenance, the taste was actually pretty good, so I guess I shouldn’t complain too much.
