– Raging Abe Simpson and his Grumbling Grandson in “The Curse of the Flying Hellfish” (The Simpsons Season 7 – Episode 22)

It’s not that Del Monte peas are inedible or taste that bad, but plain peas eaten directly from a can is never going to be my first choice of meal. Of course, depending on your circumstances Del Monte might be your only option – especially if you are living in a retirement home that can’t afford quality food, but CAN afford to outfit their nurses with shotguns.
