I'm in North Alabama, and I find Skyline chili at Publix, in the frozen foods section. I buy it to make chili dogs.

I have another friend who always brings us a king cake from New Orleans if she's down there during Mardi Gras season.

So I can get my Cajun on!

All that good Cajun food is available at Cajungrocer.com and a handful of other Louisiana vendors. I ordered a king cake from Community Coffee.

I'll have to keep looking. The nearest Publix is over 100 miles from here.

As a Cincinnati native living in Arizona, I can feel your pain.

Since the cost of shipping is ridiculous, I do NOT recommend buying cans of Cincinnati chili online and having it shipped. besides, buying the cans of chili is very expensive.

What we do is to buy the spice mix (when we are in Southern Ohio) and make our own. It is a very simple process and takes about 10-15 minutes to prepare and about 2.5 hours to cook.

I do not believe that Skyline offers spice packages but these companies do:

Cincinnati Recipe Chili!
https://goldstarchili.myshopify.com/...ns/spice-packs

I always have 10-15 packages in my pantry for our use and to give to friends.

Now all I need to do is to find a good source for mock turtle soup.

It's no use. Minnesotans can't make Polish sausage!

But, damn can we make lutefisk!

I still live where I grew up, but there are things I have had when I am traveling that I wish I could get here.


Yuengling beer, for one!

Datil peppers - yum!

That Skyline Chili must not transfer well with us non Ohioans. There is a Skyline Chile restaurant here and there are hardly ever any cars there.

A friend recently sent me 10 pounds of boiled peanuts from Pawleys Island and I cried. Literally.

I miss good fried oysters so we just make them at home.

I've been looking for pickled peaches in the can.
My dad loved them. I saw them once along time ago. But never again.

I've heard a lot abt Hellman's mayo, and I thought it was close or the same as Best Foods mayo.
Just under a diff name , in a different location.

That's what I prefer here in California.

Considering the price of wine in OK - friends visiting by car stock up for us at the border.

Yeah, you betcha! And you can't just buy that any old where either.


Thanks to this thread I went to my Amazon account and ordered a box of Mackintosh toffee and a box of Regal crown cherry sours. My dentist will be thrilled.
