Pineapple Crush And Newfoundland Kool-Aid

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving everyone!

I wanted to make mention about my latest findings while at the Dominion in Quidi Vidi. Thanks to Jim and Lisa, I now have tried pineapple and birch beer flavoured Crush pop. I've been told that the first of the two are a "must-do" Newfoundland experience.

While I am not a huge fan of Crush pop, the pineapple variety was quite enjoyable. Interestingly enough, this particular flavour has more sugar than the other Crush varieties. There was very little hint of any pineapple in the taste - but an experience none the less. The birch beer was found next to the pineapple and the root beer Crush. I have heard of root beer, but never birch beer Crush. So, I decided to give that one a whirl as well.

I did not enjoy the birch beer flavour as much as the pineapple flavour. One observation I made was that the birch beer pop was coloured pink instead of the traditional root beer brown. The flavour was similar to that of root beer and strawberry Crush combined. Very interesting.

So the verdict is: pineapple Crush tasty; birch beer Crush not so tasty. Unfortunately, neither of these flavours come in a diet alternative. Surprised? So for now, it's pineapple sugar rushes and birch beer burps. Nice!

Birch beer and pineapple flavoured Crush pop.

Further on down the isle I also found the famed "Newfie Kool-Aid", otherwise known as Purity brand flavoured syrup. I have yet to try it though as the Crush experience was enough fun for one night. The directions on the bottle say to add 50mL of syrup to 250mL of water (or your favourite mix). I picked up the raspberry flavour as it seemed to be most popular given how few there were left on the shelf. Stay tuned for updates.

Purity everything! They make salt fish in a can too. Who knew?

One more thing to add, I have also sampled the Purity brand jam-jam cookies. Very tasty! A sweet jam centre sandwiched between two moist cake-like biscuits. These are now on my list of favourite cookies. Thanks again Jim and Lisa.

Before I head out to walk off all of that sugar, I wanted to mention that the Rick Mercer Report did the funniest skit about the "Williams promises bucks for babies" incentive. Check out the Rick Mercer Report at: and then click on the "Jerry Dooley" video from season 5. If you know about "the over pass", you too will think this is hilarious! Enjoy!

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell
and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants
to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
to tell someone!
