Blog: Guacamole in disrepute

Catherine Sleep | 24 September 2003

Cocaine with a street value of some US$39m has been seized in Chicago after it was discovered inside five-gallon buckets of the avocado-based dip guacamole. Pity the poor officers who had to retrieve the drug by groping their way through 26,000 pounds of gloopy guacamole, which had been shipped from Mexico. The giveaway was that the guacamole was not being transported in a refrigerated truck – well spotted. The good news is that the bust ended in the arrest of four dealers. The bad news is the officers don’t want to eat guacamole for a long time.
