I think pretty much any brand of stout that has the words oatmeal, chocolate, or vanilla in it is a winner.

And right now I am drinking 2 bottles of Fanta sodapop imported from Poland. The 2 flavors are Fanta Shokata and Exotic. *yum*

When you were in Cozumel, didja have any pop in the bottle (using cane sugar liek the good 'ole days?) That was my experiences in Cabo. Brought back memories of my childhood drinking Coke outta the bottle.

Haha no. Quite off base you are!

For you sir, it's as easy as driving down Maple road, driving East, and right before Dequindre, there's a Polish Market store there. They sell everything you could ever imagine that would come from a country like Poland. Go figure! But my bet is, you have never walked into such a store in your entire existence in Michigan, right?

Only Ting. But, nowadays, even that sodapop can be acquired in the city of Ann Arbor.

What I would love to try one day, are some of these Trinidad flavours:

Code: Select all
Peardrax (Whiteways) Originally English refreshing soda made from English Desert pears.

Cydrax (Whiteways) made from English Cyder apples.

Sorrell is one of my favorite Trini delights; a Caribbean Christmas drink made from red sorrel leaves adding a touch or more of the caribbean ginger to enhance the flavour depending upon the Island tastes. Even a dash of Caribbean rum will help enhance Christmas lunch/Dinner???

Mauby is another delicious Trini concoction made to order for parched dry throats. it is a delicious tropical drink made from bark of Trees with a touch of anaseed to bring out the nature flavour.

I have been there before....with YOU remember?
You bought a sticker for your truck at the time.

True enough, if it wasn't for you I would have likely never been to the several Indian stores I've been to, Priya (Indian food), and the Polish stores. I probably won't ever return either unless I'm with you. LOL
What can I say, there's no point to it. Maybe with the polish store though, as I like some types of Polish food. See seem to conveniently forget all the places I've gone w/ you. :-?

That was the -other- Polish store that doesn't sell groceries and stuff.

The larger store is the one that sells all kinda of nifty sodapops, deli meats, pickles, breads, pierogies, and more...

There's plenty of 'point' to it! Why do you only frequent these places when I'm around? Go out for yourself and journey the world around you! The tri-county area you live in now is so widely diversified in cultures, you would never have to travel anywhere to obtain such oddball products!

Orange juice, I haven't had OJ for more than two years I think and now I am hooked on it. I bought a flat of these 10oz tropicana ones at costco and I already finished it off.

Peach & citrus flavor FRESCA. It's a relatively-new variation on the familiar grapefruit-flavored soda.

How much did you reserve? I just put a couple of 6-packs of '06 Bigfoot away in a closet where I won't be tempted to drink them. :wink:

I just stashed a 6 pack, so I'll have to be judicious with pulling it out.

Strawberry and Vanilla tea, imported from Japan.

I didn't even see a single sixer of '06 Bigfoot around here this year. Sad that; I love that stuff.

It's the electrolytes in Gatorade (plus the salt content) that helps replenish your body's much needed fluids...

But at the moment I'm trying out Lipton's new Green Tea flavor; Orange & Passion Fruit.
