Date: Wed, 22 Mar 1995 01:17:39 -0500 From: Leo Horishny 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 leo_horishny[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
