  Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention.  I must admit,
I personally am not an expert on long peppers or cubebs, but I sent your
information along to our website manager, as well as our PR people.
Mayhap they got some wires crossed somewhere.  Hopefully we'll get this
taken care of quickly.  Thanks for keeping an eye on us!

"Long peppers, also known as "cubebs," grow wild in Bali."  I was all
ready to order the Long Pepper Bacon until I read this.  Arrgh! Cubebs
are an entirely different spice altogether, peppery flavored but round
and usually bearing a little stem, leading to its nickname "tailed

Otherwise, your description of the long pepper "cones" is accurate
enough and I bet it blends nicely with bacon.
