Avocado comes on everything, at least it does in California. As a native Californian, I can tell you that it’s true. We are obsessed with avocados. Festivals are dedicated to it. Beer is made out of it. We would probably brush our teeth with it. So what’s the obsession all about?
Other than the fact that avocados are simply delicious, California is the leading producer of avocados in the USA – 90 percent of avocados are grown in California. It’s no wonder they are eaten like apples.
