I loved grape soda as a child, and more than once have lamented the lack of diet options.
How about a liquored up one?
Henry’s Hard Grape is all grown up — 4.2 percent alcohol by volume, as you can see — with cool retro branding.
I appreciate both.
I was curious enough to buy a six-pack, and it’s pretty tasty. But my diet soda sensibilities are offended by the cane sugar. To this day, it’s hard for me to drink anything with calories.
Those six hard sodas are gonna last me a good long time.

There’s egg on my face, but for the very best of reasons —
It’s World Egg Day!
Here at the Egg, we’re laying low to avoid the paparazzi, but there are celebrations of some import across the globe.
If you live in Bangladesh, grab one of the more than 5000 free boiled eggs being distributed, and attend “EGG FEST 2016.”
The Philippines is holding a charity Family Fun Run event in honor of eggs, and Canada is focusing their celebrations on the EFC — Egg Farmers of Canada — who apparently are very active in their communities, volunteering and donating eggs.
The American EGG Board has a video about an ‘Adventure Egg’ who travels the globe looking for great recipes, but I think the United Kingdom has the right idea. Their theme?
“Put an Egg on It” — to encourage folks to eat eggs in unusual ways.
Gasp — I just realized my sister is British.

The storied ‘L’ train in Chicago sure has a lot of don’ts.
Don’t solicit. (Expected.)
Don’t eat. Surprising…but DC prohibits food on their subway, too. I know someone who got a ticket while visiting.
Don’t gamble. WHAT?? Now we have seriously crossed a line.
Gotta have my shell game.

An update on my recent pasta post…
Those stylin’ shells have been spied on the shelves!
The pasta packaging without compare was on display in a grocery store in Toronto.
Thanks for the pic! (I’ll take one of each.)

For the past three days, the kitchen at my office has been overwhelmed by a strong aroma of molasses.
No one has ‘fessed up to eating waffles or pancakes, or syrup in any of its forms, but the molasses smell remains.
Then I read that today is the anniversary of the Great Molasses Flood of 1919!
Now granted, it took place in Boston’s North End. And I’ve never thought of food as having a spirit life. But…
I’m pretty sure the molasses ghosts are in our kitchen.
