When I visit North Carolina, I like to stock up on items that I can't get here in Illinois.
Of course, those great Ugly pastries are high on my list. I now know two stations in Wytheville, Virginia, that sell them and one in Hillsborough, NC. I bought eight of them of various flavors.
Of course, too, I had to get my two-liter bottles of Diet Cheerwine pop and I got three of them.
I was surprised to see that our local Jewel grocery store in Spring Grove sells the individual packets of grits, but just in the regular flavor. I bought there boxes of them in various flavors.
Add to my list of booty, one jar of Paul's Famous hot dog sauce and there jars of Chow-Chow relish.
Lastly, I bought one bottle of Bulls-Eye Carolina bbq sauce, even though it is the South Carolina mustard based stuff; still good though.
It is no longer necessary to stock up on varieties of Mt. Olive pickles as they sell them all over the country now.
