That's terrible! In PA, you can sometimes find it in WalMart and odd discount stores. When my husband used to travel for business to VA, GA, or FL., he was required to return home with Duke's. I've suffered some long dry spells.

Sometimes I have trouble finding canned, pitted sour cherries.
Regal Crown sours. My mom adored them, and even as a little kid, I ate one once in a while.

Yeah, those are very tasty peppers. I first encountered them in St. Augustine, FL. I also like the way they fry shrimp in St. Augustine - two lobes of shrimp meat hanging from a crispy tail.

I wish I could get Skyline in New Mexico. But the canned stuff is so expensive. Even at Kroger stores right in Cincinatti.

Far cheaper to make it from scratch, but it is a lot of work for the quantities I am interested in making. I should try the mix.

It's no use. Minnesotans can't make Polish sausage!
We cannot seem to find the Polish sausage my husband loves here (CA). His mom sends him some periodically from Virginia (she gets it maybe in DC, not sure). He goes bananas when he gets a package from her!
