How about Kona, Hawaii?

A moment of digression (although not totally, since it involves another kind of "food").....

The Portuguese find the mention of Kona coffee quite discomfiting and/or hilarious because "cona" means something quite... um... specific... in Portuguese. (Amusingly, there's a town called "Coina" near Palmela, the signs for which are constantly having their "i's" spray-painted out.

An ill-timed spasm of discretion is preventing me from offering a direct translation here.

My restaurant blog: Mahlzeit!

And Mayhaw is slipping up. I just remembered two towns in his neck of the woods. I remember the signs on I12

Satsuma, LA

Pumpkin Center, LA - both near Baton Rouge

There's also a Chunky, Mississippi (as in the candy bar) between Meridian and Jackson

Screw it. It's a Butterball.
