Ooh! Ooh! It's Back!!

I can't even remember how we stumbled upon this the other night, but now I have even more to anticipate when I head Home next month for a brief visit!

This is sweet, sweet news for all our Manitoba friends. Remember Pic-a-Pop of old? Well it's back! We found a discussion board based in Winnipeg that lists several stores where it's available. http://www.newwinnipeg.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=food;action=display;num=1126805660 Now available under The Pop Shoppe label and exorbitantly priced compared to 50 cents, they've changed the flavours just a little. You can now get pineapple and instead of plain old Lime, it's now called 'Lime Ricky,' and it also appears they've decided to add colour to the cream soda. Still, I can only drool over how worth it that wonderful lime taste will be.

Yes, Manitobans, rejoice with me!

Yeah - - my cousin brought some to our family gathering this year for my Grandpa, because he used to bring a case every Christmas. Also, green pic-a-pop and salt and vinegar chips at Carberry Bible Camp....ah. And of course, Hurl's Food Mart...
