Cross-border shopping: the food/drinks you always bring home to Vancouver

I'm so silly...I got the jam at Whole Foods, not Safeway.

What Are You Enjoying From President's Choice Blue Menu (or Organics) Products ?

Sparkling Fruit Juice Beverages. Fun flavours, and I like the smaller can size. The fruit punch flavour makes me want animal crackers and PB&J sandwiches.

Best Challah / Egg bread in Vancouver (Area)?

I lived near a bakery as a child that sold a dark, glossy, braided loaf which they referred to as simply "egg bread". The interior was twice as yellow as any I've tried since, subtly sweet, with an almost "cheese-string" effect - you could pull it apart and it had a grain similar to meat. Not the fluffy spongey texture the ones I've tried recently have. They all seem too light. Help?

For other late readers...

When I go to Oregon, I always bring back Marionberry jam. I know, it seems silly, as we live in a city overrun by blackberry bushes. But that is the best da*n jam. I bought mine at Safeway, but there must be independant producers as well.

Other than that, I mostly get excited about the liquor selection. Sometimes I feel like the provincial liquor boards are run by crazy puritanical nazis.
