Saying Goodbye To Avery Island And Tabasco

With the continued assault on the Louisiana coastline, bayous and islands by rising sea levels and erosion we may just see a day in the not too distant future when the venerable Tabasco company is forced to either move or be inundated by the sea. They're already fighting a battle against the sea and it doesn't seem like they can win this one.

    When I was an active duty Marine, in the mid 70s. The Top (First Sergeant) commented to me that if I ever wanted to be a "real Marine" I'd need to learn to like Tabasco, and coffee. My comment was something like more coffee for him, and that Marine hero, Brig General Mcllhenny , was a a reserve Marine officer. I use a little Tabasco for cooking, but I never learned to like it on C rations, or MREs. So far as I know, the company is still family run and owned, unlike Frank's. I hope that they are able to keep operating on Avery Island.
