LOL, Hissy, that's a great story--my Mom just did a Pan-American fiesta up in the middle of Wyoming and she serverd Mate (a drink that's very popular down in South America) and she said almost everyone gagged on it. Only 2 people liked it and they were originally from South America. It's actually a quite bitter drink and they drink it with tons of sugar. The only complaint the South Americans had was that my Mom didn't use enough sugar (another difference between those south of the US/Mexican border and people in the US).
