Horchata? “Looking for something sweet to wash down your chimichanga, but can’t decide between a fizzy soda and a cool and creamy Horchata? Now you can have both! Horchata Soda is the uncanny blend of pure cane soda and the milky-sweetness of the famous cinnamon spice flavored rice milk.”
Here’s the still photo below I took in Columbus Ohio the week before
I wanted to show my granddaughter Anna the Pickle favored Soda at Grandpa Joe’s Candy Store in the Strip District of Pittsburgh.
I’d no idea there were so many unusual flavors. We were window shopping and did not purchase or consume any. They certainly were colorful.
Ketchup or Kettle Corn? Bacon?
Blue Cheese? Mint Julep?
Tiny pearls of tapioca starch, milk, eggs, sugar and vanilla are the ingredients. Little containers of half and half are served with the Tapioca Pudding at Grant Bar in Millvale PA. Fortunately my friend V, who was treating Steve and me to a lovely dinner, suggested we order dessert. And she reminded me of the Tapioca Pudding they feature on the menu. Being a blog follower V has read my questions about different foods and flavors. (Mushrooms, rhubarb, licorice etc) “It would make a good blog” she said. I couldn’t remember if I’d blogged it before. Tapioca reminds me of childhood. Puddings and custards don’t seem to be as popular these days .
Want to make it at home? Here’s a recipe
One: It’s dilemma. The correct spelling. Perhaps you already knew that it was never dilemna. But you might have been taught the incorrect spelling in school from what I researched. Etymology at English Language and Usage here
Two: Lemon Raspberry or Chocolate Mousse Cake?

When I go out to eat I like to order something I don’t prepare at home. But I won’t be ordering the Liver & Onions.
It’s a NO for me but when my sister comes to visit and we are across the river at the Grant Bar it’s what she orders. This photo is the Oakdale Diner in Oakdale PA. Their fancy electronic sign keeps changing. I waited until the Liver & Onions in lights flashed back on.
I’ve asked you about flavors and tastes before, food preferences. So which is it? Liver and Onions Yes or No?
This past week I’ve asked how you feel about eating Cilantro and Rhubarb. What tastes are pleasing to your palate?
Here’s another distinctive flavor.
Licorice-Yes or no?
Meet Menno, from Holland, who has a stand on Saturdays at Winterfeldplatz Market, selling all kinds of licorice. Some with salt. Some with a lot of salt My eldest son likes licorice. I do, too But without the salt for me, please. Here is Menno’s website http://www.lecker-lakritz.de
Above- The brochure listing all the varieties And the assortment I selected for Mark
Somewhere in the archives I have photos of my sister eating a licorice ice cream cone in Twisp Washington. And of course Menno has sold pure licorice powder to our favorite Berlin ice cream store, Kiez Eis, for licorice ice cream. You know I asked.
