#GoyaAlternatives Is Giving People A List Of Companies And Recipes To Help Boycott Goya

Goya’s CEO Robert Unanue is facing backlash after calling President Donald Trump a good builder and leader. Latinos, the regular and most loyal customers listened and are using their wallet to send a message by boycotting Goya and buying their competitors.

Goya CEO Robert Unanue convinced Goya lovers to boycott the brand with one sentence.

Unanue, a Spanish-American, called President Trump a great builder and leader during an event. The reaction was swift and unified as Latinos took to social media to call for a boycott. However, as Latinos do, we didn’t just call for a boycott; we got our abuelas involved.

Some Trump supporters are calling for a “buy-cott” to support a company many claim to have never used.

Like, cool. We get it. You like to support your man no matter what. That’s cool and all but it is very telling that so many people on Twitter are saying that it is their first time buying Goya. Cute.

Latinos are calling for a boycott of Goya and offering up alternatives.

There are a lot of companies that offer us the delicious sabor we have tome to associate with Goya. Much like Goya, these companies are ready to be pantry staples offering up the Latino sabor we love. Some don’t even have to be Latino to have our staples.

You can even find recipes for things you’ve never tried to make before using #GoyaAlternatives.

Who knew that you could just make adobo? We all love adobo because you can add it to literally anything and it will be delicious. Now we can just make our own and have some on hand for anything we are making. It’s always nice to know that you made something you use all of the time.

People have their abuelas involved because we are an all-hands-on-deck kind of community.

Tbh, Goya could never match what our abuelas are able to do. They have so much experience feeding their picky grandchildren so they know all of the tricks to make anything delicious. They also know the best non-Goya products to use to make the boycott equally delicious.

Now, just make sure you aren’t wasting food.

There isn’t anything good about throwing out perfectly good food. Ana Navarro offered up some advice about what to do with your current Goya stash. Eat it and don’t buy more or donate it to food banks or those in need.

AOC Gets Under Ted Cruz’s Skin With Crack About His Mexican Getaway After He Accuses Her Of Pushing For ‘open borders’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ted Cruz are at it again on Twitter. This time it’s about immigration policy. After recently traveling to the US-Mexican border to underline the recent rise in immigration, Cruz accused AOC of pushing for a “full open borders” policy.

And of course, AOC got him with some solid zingers.

AOC in turn hit back at Cruz for recently fleeing his home state of Texas during its power grid collapse to vacation in Cancún.

In response to Cruz’s attack, AOC suggested Mexico avoid allowing Cruz in the next time he attempts to vacation there. She also called on him to resign from office for his attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“Ted, this is pretty rich coming from someone who fled their own home (and responsibilities) during an environmental crisis to cross the border and seek refuge in Mexico,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Also you funded cages, expanded cages, and yet you’re complaining about cages. You have no policy, just puff.”

Ocasio-Cortez accused Republicans of hypocritically attacking the current administration’s detention of migrant children at the border after they supported President Donald Trump’s policy of separating migrant parents from their children.

Currently, Democrats like AOC are calling on Biden to impliment more liberal immigration policies.

Republicans have strongly expressed their dislike for the recent rise in migrants which has come as a result of Biden’s reversal of Trump’s most rigid border policies.

AOC is currently a co-sponsor of the Roadmap to Freedom resolution. The resolution calls on the Federal Government to develop and implement a Roadmap to Freedom “in order to overhaul the outdated immigration system in the United States that has gone without significant reform for decades, and to relieve the great human impact an unjust system bears on communities around the country.”

Social media is where people can show off just about anything they create. This includes art in any and all media, like pancake art. Claudia, the creator behind Nappan Pancake art, is the latest artist watching their art reach the masses.

Claudia, the artist behind Nappan Pancake art, got her start because of the pandemic.

casi ✨1 año✨haciendo #pancakeart 🥞 #parati #foryou #viral #trend #glowup #art #foryoupage

♬ Inox la bggg – ᗰᗩᖇIE ᗰOI ᑎᗩᖇᑌTO

The artist first started to play around with pancake art last spring break when the pandemic forced businesses and schools to close. Claudia wanted to get more creative with her kids’ breakfasts since they were now always at home.

“I started experimenting with making Pancake art,” Claudia recalls to mitú. “At first I only used the color of the natural dough and a little cocoa. At first, I just used the ketchup dispensers and little by little I learned.”

Claudia uses her pancake art to honor some truly iconic people.

Cepillín recently died and the loss was felt throughout the community. He made our lives joyous and fun with his music, especially his birthday song. Some of the creations are done for fans who request to see their faves turned into delicious pancake art.

The artist loves creating the edible works of art.

The journey of becoming a pancake artist has been a fun adventure for Claudia and her children. The more she has practiced, the more she has been able to do.

“Sometimes I scream with excitement and I go to all the members of my house to see it,” Claudia says about her successes. “Other times it’s just a feeling like “disappointment could be better” other times it just breaks or burns and then I just cry but it usually feels very satisfying.”

You can check out all of her creations on TikTok.
