If you're not from New Orleans, you won't get this.

I'm working on a branding project for class and we are designing a condiment product line. Naturally, I chose a creole seasoning similar to Tony's. I'm calling it Lagniappe (a little something extra) and it's a trip watching these Northerners try to pronounce it. Lagniappe and Chachere's.

It's been a long time since I've had a conversation with these words in it and especially where the other party had no idea what I was talking about much less pronounce it properly. I'd love to see them try to pronounce some of our street names.

My husband is from GA and he says "character" when he means Chachere's.
