I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Garibaldi's and Green Goddess and Fizzies Oh My!

Do you remember Garibaldi’s? Those thin golden biscuits loaded with raisins, oh how I loved those as a kid.
How about some Seven Seas Green Goddess Dressing for your salad. I like it now because I can appreciate how good it tastes but growing up I’m pretty sure the biggest draw was that it was green.
To wash it all down how about a plain glass of water that you can magically turn into whatever flavor carbonated drink you like…….Plop, plop it’s Fizzies Tablets.
What fun just knowing this stuff is still out there. So many things we have enjoyed in the past are either gone or almost impossible to find. Well let me tell you if you want a shopping trip down memory lane just visit The Vermont Country Store. It’s not just the food; they even have clothes and apothecary items we can remember our grandparents using way back when.
You can shop and order online or have a catalog mailed to you (get the catalog).
A hot cup of tea, The Vermont Country Catalog, a comfy chair and reminisce, it’s good for the soul.
