In honor of the 300th birthday of Detroit, today, wanted to share some specifically Detroit specialities
Sanders Hot Fudge sauce (the best jarred you can get)
Vernor's ginger ale ( a Detroit invention)
Cold duck (Pontchartrain Wine Cellar (now departed invention --half burgundy half champagne)
Boston cooler (why Boston? don't know) scoop of vanilla ice cream in Vernor's ginger ale
Coney Island (Yes, here!) The best in the country; cripsy skinned dogs, finely chopped no tomato, slightly sweet chili on top.
Muskrat as fish at Lent
Walleye--any time of year
Perch ---ditto, esp. at the Polish Yacht Club
Faygo pop (way before Insane Clown Posse)--red pot is the ur-red pop of all time
Little bit of extension :
American Spoon Foods (owners grew up here--now have mad Michigan fruits, especially, available everywhere)
Dont' get me started on non-food Motown...
