VIDEO: ¡Ask a Mexican! on Why Mexicans Hate Yellow Cheese So Much

Earlier this week, Buzzfeed released an amusing video where they gathered a group of Mexicans from Los Angeles (the King Taco shoutout was the giveaway, Adrian!) to try Taco Bell for the first time. Typical hilarity ensues, but the part that got me the most was the above reaction from the mujer, because it dovetailed nicely with stories I had been hearing from Mexicans about their revulsion to yellow cheese on Mexican anything and how that was not "authentic."

Of course, I wrote an unread, unpurchased book called Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America, which hasn't changed Mexican thinking on yellow cheese one bit. So here's a video reminder for everyone on why Mexicans hate yellow cheese so much. Enjoy!
