8 LB BAG SOUR WORMS (n.b. worm illustration) $3.95

The MadMen at Dr Pepper/Snapple Group finally noticed that Southerners have been basting meat with soda pop since 1885, so there’s now a Dr Pepper bottle sweetly labeled “Marinade.” [historical sidebar: Dr Pepper was introduced to millions of visitors at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair, where it was an instant success. Other major food products introduced at the exposition included the ice cream cone, hot dog rolls and hamburger buns.] Any Southerner can tell you there are 23 natural and artificial ingredients, none of them prunes, in Dr Pepper and that there is no period after Dr

    Sandwich Host is my kinda lunch joint….i’ll have the fried chicken, white beans, yams and speckled butter beans, cause i’m guessing the fried okra is already sold out. Next time i go by Calandro’s, i’ll photo the hot sauce shelf for contrast/comparison to the grits shelf which is quite impressive.
