    We bought some Mexican crema from a local store, it is "La Chona" brand. I looked this up in the dictionary and on the net, and can't find what it means. It seems to be a city in central Mexico, and maybe a nickname, but that doesn't really answer the question. Does anyone know?

    Chona is short for Concepción o de Asunción. (It's a proper name)
