Welcome to Vega Peppers, a family run operation, where live hands stuff more than a quarter of a ton of cherry peppers daily – between 11,000 to 13,000 per day – to satiate the pepper-popping population.

Web Exclusive: A Special look at Christmas

December 25, 2010

Christmas in the United States is really BIG. By big, I mean over the top, crazy, out of control enormous.
