Uruguay's Supply of Dulce de Leche Was Seized By Brazilian Customs Officials
Uruguay tried to bring 86 pounds of a delicious caramel spread known as dulce de leche with them to the World Cup, but the shipment never arrived, as Brazilian officials said the team did not have proper documentation to bring in the dairy product.
The BBC reports the people of Uruguay are claiming the missing sweets are what caused their team's surprise 3-1 loss to Costa Rica in their first game, giving poor defense and an injured Luis Suarez a pass.
Brazilian officials said they will not release the spread, which Latin Americans use on everything from bread to fruits, until they are provided with the proper paperwork, adding "Or they can pick it up on their way out of Brazil," which is a pretty catty thing for a customs official to say.
Also, let's make sure to give Uruguay the proper respect for thinking caramel frosting is the key to athletic success. [CBSSports]
