Caribbean Favourites at Loblaws

, (during Caribana), I was greeted by this interesting display at the Loblaws on Leslie Street in Toronto:

Seriously Loblaws? Who's idea was it for this display?

Never mind the cheesy balloons, how is a Hawaiian (wearing a Hula skirt, Leis and a coconut bra) related to the Caribbean?

I couldn't help but laugh and I just had to go up closer to take it all in when I discovered the "fine print" – pineapples: product of Costa Rica; papaya: product of Bolivia; coconut: product of Dominican Republic; plantain: product of Colombia; and mangoes: product of Mexico. Last I checked, Bolivia wasn't even close to the Caribbean, no?
