Lagniappe From Cushy Alpacas

Lagniappe From Cushy Alpacas

Lagniappe refers to something given or obtained gratuitously or by way of good measure. The word entered English from Louisiana French, in turn derived from the American Spanish phrase la ñapa ('something that is added' ). The term has been traced back to the Quechua word yapay ('to increase; to add'). In Andean markets it is still customary to ask for a yapa when making a purchase. The seller usually responds by throwing in a little extra. Although this is an old custom, it is still widely practiced today in Louisiana.
