Michigan Favorites

I have lived in Northern California now for a little over 12 years and there are so many things (mostly food based) I miss from back home in Michigan.
  • Vernors Ginger Ale - found the cans a couple years back but just last night at my local market, they had the 2 liter size, I about teared up in the isle while I placed it in my basket.
  • Better Made Potato Chips - the Red Hots are my favorite.
  • Awrey's Baked Goods - Date Nut Squares
  • Sanders - Milk Chocolate Sauce, Bumpy Cake and Carmel Cake
  • Apple Cider - can't find it anywhere our here!
  • Cider Mill - fresh hot doughnuts and cider, ugh, what I wouldn't give for one around here.
  • Blue Moon Ice Cream - Ray's Brand or really any...my sister in law told Tim that Blue Moon is a "great Northern secret" I love it!
  • Mackinac Island Fudge ice cream - or Mackinac Island fudge anything, maple walnut is the best.
  • Elephant Ears - they call them funnel cakes out here, really?
  • Middle Eastern Bakeries and Restaurants
  • Greek Town!
  • Blakes - "pick your own" farm and you guessed it, Cider Mill
  • TownClub Soda
  • Faygo Rock N'Rye

This is not an complete list, I will add more as I think of them. I guess I am a little homesick - have not been back to Michigan since November of 2005 I believe. It is about time.

The photos are Cider Mills I went to while I lived in Michigan. Top one is Yates and the lower is Franklin.

Hey, if you and Tim ever want to drive up to Apple Hill they have fresh apple cider and fresh apple doughnuts. So good! Maybe not the same but it is beautiful up there and they have yummy food.
Love you!
