Good low carb snack. French onion dip goes good with pork rinds too.

Sure does. I never had the red hot till I moved south of Cleveland. French onion dip is good on most anything. At one time I think it was Lawson's that had the best dip......waaaaay back

I was recently down that way and see it's gone. Progress..lol

Yeah the hangouts from my youth, work and others - GONE:

JIMMIE'S INN, Niles, Tony's Hide away YSU, Bavarian House YSU, Victory Tavern Steel Street Youngstown and plenty others including the Strip in Niles. (used to be 19 bars on short Steel Street alone, wow, very few left)

Despite that there are still some good survivors in the Italian restaurants and pizza joints in the Youngstown/Warren area.......great for football meals!

As h informed and then proved to me last year (by bringing me some to Florida)... it's still sold at Circle K's... and it's every bit as good as you remember.

Well....Fat Albert's ain't around any more either.  (NOrton).  NOr the Machine Bar (Barberton)

Nor is Schroeder's  (Akron U)

Nor is the North Union Grist Mill bar...aka Humps  (near Shaker Sq)

And ask Steve about all the clubs he used to play around Akron/Cleveland.

Don't forget the Sunday beer. 99cents and a friend's draft card was all it took for a six pack at 16. Redcap!...lol

I never thought to check circle k for dip. I only stop there for gas. Thanks for the heads up. I'm gonna check in a little bit here.

Some of the stuff from local dairy's is pretty good. It doesn't have the preservatives that the national brands do. Deans is real good here. Smith's too.

I was just going to say that Heluva Good is a good fill-in for Lawson's.

Smith's French Onion dip, sold in certain gas stations? Virtually tasteless.

Take and stir in a tablespoon of dill weed into some french onion dip. Chill it overnight. Makes for a very tasty variation.

I was really surprised that Lawsons are in Japan (still there):  I used to eat Obento (lunch box) from them quite often.

And it has occurred to me that if, in fact, one man sleeps while the other man drives, that it should be a relatively easy task to get some orange juice from Florida to Ohio in less than 40 hours.

This was in the 1960s,   Remember, the likes of i-75 and I-77 were not completed...or perhaps even started then.  They had to drive through the hills and mountains of Georgia/Tennesse/Kentucky/Virginia/West Virg.  on back highways like US 21.  And those were some nasty roads through there in those days.

I know that I-77 anyway was not complete through WVa. until about the late 80s.

My wife knows shopping and deals and makes the rounds of local stores like Marcs and Aldis which has their store brand for dip, pickles, etc. HEAVENLY FARMS (from memory) quite good and a decent price. Try it!

We aren't. Lots of different family things going on and nobody can all get their shitt together to have Thanksgiving at one place. So her family will have Thanksgiving on Friday I will go to a movie and down to Carrollton for the last Coley's reunion, and later, and catch up with them sometime in the afternoon.

Traditionally on Thanksgiving Day we go to buca de Peppo in Strongsville.

They purchased a Char-Broil smoker roaster Tru infrared device at are going to roll the dice cooking the turkey in that.
