  1. I grew up in Evansville, so seeing this pop up on Pinterest was awesome! Also, I still crave Los Bravos queso on a weekly basis, even though I moved out of Indiana over 5 years ago.

    1. It’s crazy, there’s a Los Bravos down the street from me in Atlanta and I thought it was the same brand; I was very disappointed to learn that it’s not at all the same as the Evansville one!
