Good for you, mr chips for finding a way to enjoy these Roadfood treats. I have mail ordered Enstrom’s in the past and it is every bit as good as you say!
�Just received an order of common crackers from Vermont Country Store, a food site and store recommended in the 500 Things to Eat book by jane and Michael Stern. Mixed them with milk and a hunk of cheddar(local Tillamook instead of Vermont). It was a tasty treat though I was not overwhelmed by it. A different taste than oyster crackers though it is obvious that oyster crackers are a descendant of the common cracker. Again it is an interesting �regional taste that roadfood introduced me to. And it was only ten bucks including a nice storage tin that I will reuse.
While my travels have been a little limited, i have been able to buy trudy some roadfood anniversary and birthday gifts by mail order. The Sterns mentioned the Enstrom Candy company of Grand Junction, Colorado as a source for world class chocolate almond toffee. And they were right. The milk chocolate is sweet but not sickeningly so and the crunch is satisfying but not tooth breaking. the entire chips family approved and thinks this is one of the great taste treats ever. The Cranberry Island �company of Cumberland, Maine sent us our first Whoopee Pies and they were sensational, rich in their chocolate flavor with the cream and cake fillings a delight. Again a taste treat.
�� � It is nice to experience roadfood even if i can’t get everywhere i would like.
Just received another mail order food, coffee syrup from Autocrat, Inc in Lincoln, Rhode island.
Is it just me, or does anyone else find the brand name Autocrat hilarious? I’ve always wondered where that came from.
All the places I’ve ordered from have been mentioned in the Sterns’ “500 Things to Eat Before It’s Too Late” so I’ve had no problem counting them on my roadfood list.
If�I just order something through the mail can add the restaurant to my list under These are the places I visited on Roadfood?
�� � � �I do.
For single purchases don’t forget Ebay.
WJ gave us a ‘door-prize’ gift of a bottle of that syrup some time back. It is great on Ice Cream making ‘mocha’ sundaes !!! Even better on Carmel ice-cream than the chocolate !
Boscoli’s olive salad from N.O. is the real thing. I order a couple of jars every year or so.
No problem. I just thought the thread would be about ordering food from Roadfood restaurants, like getting mustard from Phillipe’s, etc.
Just received another mail order food, coffee syrup from Autocrat, Inc in Lincoln, Rhode island. This is the syrup used to make coffee milk, the official state drink of Rhode island. A milk shake is coffee syrup mixed with milk and is a nice coffee flavored treat; iced coffee is the syrup mixed with ice water and is another treat. I can hardly wait to try a frappe, which is what the rest of the country calls a milk shake. my only problem is that the smallest order i could buy is 6 bottles and I have an awful lot. i did think of my friend WJ as i indulged.
Good thing he wasn’t reading a doctor’s monthly.
Hey, why not Plb! If you can’t get there you can order it.
Hmm, who sang that song “don’t get around much anymore” ???
I googled it. The original head of the company was reading “The Atlantic Monthly”, read an article “The Autocrat of the Breakfast table’, looked up the word, liked it and named his new company after the word.
Fascinating! So even after he looked the word up he felt it a suitable brand name for his company.
