Well actually they are now coming out with studies that claim that lard is healthy for you ... check out this google search http://www.google.com/search?q=is+lard+good+for+you&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a
Lard is made from rendered pork fat and is used because it imparts no particular flavor of it's own and makes a very flaky crust and in the south at least is used to make biscuits (yummm)
Manteca is spanish for lard ... I've noticed the last several years that they started putting lard on one side of the box and manteca on the other .... it should also be in the cooking oil isle and depending who put it on the shelf and how much a hurry they were in it will either say lard or manteca.   Of course if you want to pay extra you can always get it in a hispanic store :P
You should be able to buy it at any local grocery store also look for manteca, it's the same thing just turn the box around and suprise !!! ... LARD

Don't forget bacon grease !!!!!    
Welcome to the forums St. Louis it's good to have you here ... interesting that's where I was born actually.   Enjoy your time here!!!!!!!

It wasn't the "Don't forget the cannoli" type of look was it?     On a serious note is this pickled bell peppers that your looking for here are they spicy or roasted or anything ... crunchy, soft, salty canned in pickling solution or oil maybe?
Are you talking about a regular bell pepper or the long italian cooking peppers ... I can't remember the exact name ... cubanele or something like that?   Plus you have to remember your competing with a memory and I'm willing to bet the memory of what they tasted like will win more times than the actual taste ... plus with most people no body cooks better than mama ..... except grandma or in your husbands case nonna!!!!!
