Posted:So I grew up in Michigan, Detroit area.



I grew up with this fantastic ginger ale called Vernor's. It's really strong and Michigan kids love it, it's so gingery that the unaccustomed sneeze when they first try to drink it.



Oh, and there's this soda-pop company called Faygo. In Michigan, a carbonated sweet beverage is a "Pop" ("Soda" in most of the rest of the U.S.) So Faygo made this strawberry flavored "redpop." It was *so* good and it turned your lips super-red and moms hated what it did to clothes. Faygo is only sold in the upper Midwest.



And the corned beef sandwiches in the delis there are *so* good and *so* not like anything I've ever found in New York. Really great Jewish rye bread...



And Dairy Queen. The amazing soft-serve ice cream joints that were only open during the summer.



And then not from where I grew up, I miss Smarties, which are not available in the U.S., but are in Canada and Europe.



What foods do you crave, but don't have regular access to?



From California, I crave See's chocolates and In-&-Out Burger, but I will get my fill of those soon enough.

Posted:Chocolate in all the different types and paprika crisps and proper chips with the many choice of sauces and yummy fresh bread and koffiekoeken.

Ask a question and be a fool for a minute...don't ask and be a fool your whole life.

Posted:We don't get Smarties in the U.S. (Well, we do, but it's a completely different product). I crave UK and Canada Smarties.

Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.
Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Water can flow, or it can Crash.
Be Water My Friend.
