A Definitely Southern Find
Posted 18 March 2003 - 05:52 PM
Anyway, this is not a Food LionThread, really, but I did find myself in one last weekend, as there are times one wants to shop without having to remove one's self from where they already are (Dollar General lol--I love that place!)
I got the urge to eat sherbet (world's worst word to pronouce), for some bizzaro reason--and there in the case, they had Cheerwine as well as SunDrop Sherbet!!!!!
Not only was this the quinessential Food LIon product, but definitely an only in the south item. Imagined punchbowls full of Hawaiian punch, Sundrop sherbet, and 7-up at a baby shower. I had to buy some.
I must say I like the Sundrop version better "With Sundrop Concentrate,' but the Cheerwine is not so shabby.

But can I say one thing in defense of Food Lion? The ones around me are good sources for things like bones for stock and for lard, because they often cater to fixed-income, older shoppers who do more traditional Southern cooking. (Not great lard, mind you -- not leaf lard -- but they usually have the kind in the bucket, which is worlds better than the stuff in the box.)

Did any of you venture into that budget supermarket that was on the corner of Atlantic and Spring Forest in Raleigh. I forgot the name, it started with an "S" and they'd have each day stuff like "50% off all meat" the one time I went in, I was the only person in there and it was kind of a bizzaro world atmosphere--yellow and red floor.
Dollar General is my new fave place for crap I don't need.
