Could they have developed a taste for fajitas?

They likely had a taste for that well before arriving. Stuff like fajitas, nachos, burritos, tacos, quesadillas, etc. is almost as mainstream in Quebec as Italian food is in the U.S.

Maybe the Van Doos introduced poutine to El Pasoans.

Good question.

In the 1970's and 80's, when I was hitting a lot of pubs, you always got free pretzels...if not, peanuts.

You had to pay for the pickled eggs. Some places had big jars of them on the bar, some had a jar, but the eggs were packaged in two's.

Now...maybe the odd place might still offer pickled eggs..I seem to remember seeing one last year.

After those gallon wide mouth jars of pickled eggs were emptied it was common to cut a slot in the top big enough to allow a Quarter to be dropped through. That quarter would then descend through the jar full of water and if it landed in a shot glass placed in the center of the bottom of the jar your got your drink for free or some other prize. Most military messes had at least one of those jars on the bar ……...along with the pickled eggs of course.

Great idea!

I confess I love pickled eggs...always planned to make my own, but haven't. I'm particular though. I prefer our local Vanderpol ones, over the other brand I see around which is Strubb's. Strubb's makes me gag for some reason.

Some places have pretzels and peanuts here but pickled eggs I have rarely seen. Maybe in taverns and dive bars.
