…That you moved away from and can no longer get! Or that you couldn't get but now have made it to your new area!

The first like three years I lived in NC I was fucking dying for UTZ chips. I nearly cried the day I discovered the stores here had them again. And blue crabs are not easy to come by in Raleigh because we're three hours from the beach.

I grew up in the Cleveland area. Living in LA, I miss good Italian and Eastern European food. Around here I'm lucky if I can find even one brand of pierogi in the frozen food aisle of my local foodatorium. Fucking barbarians.
PS: The Mexican food is a pretty great consolation prize, though.
PS: But seriously, Cleveland has some amazing food and I will fight anyone who claims otherwise. Like, pistols at dawn and shit. My place of birth may be dysfunctional in myriad ways, but you will at least eat well.

I grew up in the Hudson Valley area of New York State. When I moved to the San Fernando Valley area, Yoo-hoo hadn't made it out there and you couldn't get Wise potato chips, so my mom would send me a care package every couple of months.

Living in Denver the last 25 years, the only thing I really miss and get cravings for is Hellman's sandwich spread. Hellman's is Best Foods out this way, but the nearest store that stocks Sandwich Spread is a few hundred miles east last I checked.

Bad Mongo....I went to a Kroger down here in Dayton (Fred Meyer on the west coast, I think--basically our version of Giant Eagle) and scoured the freezer section looking for some Mrs. T's frozen pierogies. I couldn't find them, so I asked a guy stocking the freezers and he said, "what's a pierogi?" I swear, my heart stopped.

Bright side, that's when I really started to get into cooking things from scratch. I now make a pretty decent home made pierogi.

Also would like to note that when I posted this on facebook, my friends from Cleveland said the same thing you did--"what kind of barbarians are you living with that they don't know pierogies?"

My grandfather would shoot and cook rabbits every so often, and it was always super tasty and delicious. I haven't had rabbit since I was in Paris and I miss it because those Sunday dinners were some of my favorite things from my childhood.

Mansmith's tri-tip sandwiches. Basically seasoned tri-tip (yes, I know it's a West Coast thing) on garlic bread and it comes with a spicy red sauce.
