I see people looking for a place to find a specific food item occasionally. It's always part of the challenge of relocating. If you want something that isn't available, maybe someone knows of a substitute...........

I'll start it off with something I'm wondering about.

I've never been able to get Orange Nehi in South Jersey. Is it avalable in the Charlotte area?

Thanks, everyone!

Now here's a question that's a little more specific. I've always purchased Maglio Bros. or Pathmark brand Italian sausage. What brand available in the Charlotte area is the closest?

Johnson Bros. is the brand I get down here. It is really not bad at all and comes in the hot or sweet

Hey Dori, have you ever tried Tuttorosso? I'm not sure if they have whole tomatoes, I've always picked up the crushed tomatoes. I used to pick up a couple of cases when Shop-Rite had the "can-can" sale back in Jersey. I actually found them in Walmart recently @ $ .98/ 28 oz. can, that's an excellent price. Check it out...Ron

Hi uncdad, are they in blue cans? I think I remember them from 'Shop-Wrong' back in my Jersey days. I'll have to check it out. I've been using Fermanos and they are ok, but a little acidic (sp). I just add some baking powder to cut that, but I'd love to find some Progresso. Thanks for the info.
