My Favorite Store

I have driven by this store about 100 times, or more. It is in Draper on 700 E. and about 19000 South. A few weeks ago before Christmas, Jeff and I ventured in for the first time just to see what it was all about. It was so cool. Tons of imported gourmet foods that you cant find anywhere else. Things like Tahini, which I have looked for in vain, lemon curd, which I love, all of the foods that Jeff loved when he was living in Australia. German, South American, and other European candies and Chocolates. About 30 different types of Ginger Beer, which Jeff is an absolute conissure of. (No Vernors though :( ) Dr, Pepper flavored B-B-Q Sauce. Imported fancy Root beer. Mascopone Cheese. And just a lot of really unique and fun stuff. We take the kids every once in a while too. They have the greatest selection of homemade and old fashioned candy. And the best homemade salsa and other relishes and dressings. It is definitely worth a trip! Jeff took the owner a bottle of his imported Bundaberg Ginger beer that I have to order for him every year on Christmas and on his Birthday, from California. It is brewed in Australia and is the very best Ginger Beer in the World. Pirate O's is now going to start carrying it. I wonder if I took them a bottle of Vernor's, which is the very best Ginger Ale, from Michigan, if they would start carrying that too. We can only hope!

I would love to go to that store! but you should take them some Vernor's too. I miss drinking that when I'm sick. Although I do remember finding it at a Smith's in Logan. I had the Flu and had Greg search the whole store in hopes that maybe they had it and they did! It was in the beer section. Probably because no one new what is was or where to put it. but we have not be able to find it since.:( Oh well, Still that store sounds like a really fun place.

Pirate O's is my favorite store ever! I love to go in there and just wander around, looking at all the cool stuff. Sometime you should try the gelato in the freezer case. Oh and they've got a huge selection of flavored syrups that I put in hot chocolate. I'm glad you found it!
