Best store bought pickles

I like Famous Dave's spicy pickle chips. Basically bread & butter pickles with a tiny bit of heat. Good flavor though.

While we're talking pickles, are there any brands that use sugar rather than HFCS? All the brands I see in the local stores use HFCS.

Favorite Vintage and Off-Beat Soda Pops

I imagine root beer is hard to find in general in Montreal, as it is in most of the world outside the US. If you can try some Fitz's or St. Arnold root beer. Delicious if you're a root beer nut like me.

Favorite Vintage and Off-Beat Soda Pops

Other than the usual suspects (cola, lemon-lime), I don't think Kroger has diet sodas anymore. Probably aspartame-based anyway, so not for me.

Mug is owned by Pepsi and is available in pretty much any grocery store.

Peanut Butter

One of the brands was "The Peanut Shop of Williamsburg". Not organic. That was the "cheap" $7 jar. The other I don't recall.

These are plain peanut butters, just peanuts and salt.

Peanut Butter

AJ's Fine Foods has some $7-10 jars of peanut butter from a couple of vendors. $10 for a small jar of pb is pretty outrageous, what justifies that price?

Anybody miss Rondo? A citrusy Aussie soda, "lightly carbonated so you can slam it down".

Bottled Water. Yay/Nay ?

Home filters seem to be minimally effective at removing flourine and chlorine, that's why I drink spring water. It hasn't undergone the industrial processing that adds those contaminants to city tap water.

Do you like whipped cream on your fruit pie?

No whipped cream on any pie. Not because it tastes bad, but because it dilutes the flavor of whatever pie it's added to.

Interesting. Many strawberry sodas have a bubblegum aftertaste to my palate.

New foodie event on Saturday nights in Old Town Scottsdale

Still 110 degrees outside. Too much for me tonight.

Outdoor gatherings aren't the sort of thing I'd expect to succeed over the course of a Phoenix summer. You get big opening crowds because of the novelty, but they diminish rapidly because nobody wants to suffer the heat more than once.
