    So one of my local B&M's has a flake they call slice of the south. I'm almost certain it's their made-up name as I couldn't find anything online. Just curious if this rings a bell with anyone. I like this stuff!

    If it was me I'd ask them. The worst thing they can do is tell you, "they don't know". Only the biggest stores have a blender on their staff. Ask them.

    Without seeing or smelling it, it's hard to say.

    Actually it tastes like grits and you gotta smoke it out of a cob if you want the real corny flavor to come through. :ohyh:

    Gawd, I would give my third gonad for a Hardee's or Bojangle's biscuit n' gravy right now...

    (Sorry. That blend name is new to me, too.)

    Country ham biscuit would suffice, as well....danged Pennsylvania...

    Do you have a description most of the time a B&M will use the stock description word for word. Is it a big flake? PS Twist Flake is a common renamed bulk. :confused:

    I'm Southern born, and raised, but that's one thing I could never bring myself to take a liking to.

    We used to eat brains and eggs and we made head cheese every year when I was a kid. I was never fond of pickled pig's feet, but have had them several times. Love calf fries and rooster fries too.

    I'm a southerner living in Canada. I get my grits from New York. The shame, the shame, :) My grandfather liked pickled pig feet. I like head cheese (we called it souse) but pig feet was never for me. These days i can even find collards and okra, thanks to the Indian immigrants who came from Africa. I was dancing on the street the first time I found okra up here, in an Indian owned veggie market. Can't find turnip greens as local farmers sell that for pig feed. Spinach gets boring. Kolrabi leaves make a good collard substitute. We grow tomatoes on the roof so I can fry the green ones.
