2. I don't know... I would have been a bit more forgiving - IF - s/he was a
longtime and close friend.

Maybe you could win her over by:

1. Forgiving her for her stupid choice in pretzeldents.
2. Work with her by informing her... a little bit at a time, or at least in doses she can handle.
3. Explain fully, in detail, why YOU are so upset.

I do not know how good of a friend she is, but if she is, then I'd apologize for being so harsh. THEN, open her eyes. Remember, converts are often the best allies, even to the point of zealotry... which is GREAT for we Americans.
