Subject: Creme Soda
I went to the store and addition to my
previous elusive search for a thick shake I added an even more elusive search
for a bottle of Barq's Creme Soda.--Yvette
I may be straying off the reason for this list with the following, but Yvette
does bring up a pertinent regionalism with her creme soda (pseudo) comment.
Red pop is NOT creme soda! Ick.
When we first moved to Cincinnati, I had to make an effort to find real creme
soda, not that red, sweet, stuff like
Barq's. I was a big creme soda fan growing up, but we didn't have anything
like Vernor's (interesting) or Red pop (NOT).
And then there's my first experience eating a "coney dog" after moving here,
especially considering my fond childhood memories of visiting the real Coney
Island with my grandparents when I was younger and sampling Coney Island
chili dogs. Needless to say, the locals who introduced me to Cincinnati
"chili" were surprised at
my disappointment when I saw a Cincinnati coney dog.
I better get off this topic...I'm getting hungry and pushing the language
envelope here g
