Ha! All you evolutionary biologists and ecologists thought I was going to talk about population isolation and environmental parameters and shifting equilibriums and perhaps the increased rate of genetic change in small populations. Nope! I’m going to talk about food (so what’s new!). It’s not uncommon to see American fast-food chains in foreign countries. In the Caribbean, Kentucky Fried Chicken is particularly prevalent (those guys must have a wicked marketing department). The menu is pretty much the same as it is in the states – fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, etc – but there are some concessions to local palates, such as this made-in-Trinidad, scotch bonnet and habanero pepper hot sauce. We put it on our tuna sandwiches. Delicious!
