Misadventures in labeling

I went to the Fiesta supermarket this morning to stock up on provisions. Since today is the first weekend of college football some chicken wings seemed appropriate. Rather than the usual fried I decided to grab some jerk seasoning and toss them on the grill.

Is no one going to mention the alternate spelling of flavored? Or do we all just have our minds in the gutter? But seriously, this is a little bit of awesome.
