Beats the heck out of me.  I was victimized by capsicum at Hooters the 
other day [I was taking a friend from out of town, the food is OK and 
the girls are very sweet really] where they didn't say Word One about 
"spicy" in the description of the crab dip.  Grrr.

Like any other "flavor of the month" we will just have to outlive the 
trend.  I think I'm liking the ubiquity of Pomegranate Juice much better.
