The Problem with "Diet" Avocados

A company in Spain, Isla Bonita, is launching what is being called a low fat or diet avocado. The avocado, marketed as Avocado Light, with have 30% less fat than other avocados. The reduced-fat avocados will only be available in Spain, but we do have something similar in the United States: Florida avocados. Florida avocados are bigger than Hass or California avocados, have bright green skin, and are lower in fat. Florida avocados are sometimes marketed as Slimcados. The whole Slimcado thing has irritated me for a while now and with the news of this Avocado Light coming to Spain I thought it was time for us to talk about it. I have a big problem with the way these avocados are marketed.
