Got Madeleines?

April 14, 1999|CHARLES PERRY

Hometown Favorites is a Florida-based mail-order outfit specializing in nostalgia food: regional and hard-to-find American food products. If you're craving a Big Red Soda or a Moxie, a Goldenberg's Peanut Chew or a U-No Bar, Walnettos, Gold Brick Ice Cream Topping, Ralston Hot Wheat Cereal or Dixie Cincinnati Chili, you'll find it here (minimum order $15; the typical shipping charge adds $6 to $8). The 400-item catalog is based on customer requests, so if you don't see what you want, they'll try to find it for you. Of course, there are things, such as D-Zerta and Fan Tan Gum, that are apparently gone forever.

Hometown Favorites, Inc., (888) 694-2656, or at http://www.hometownfavorites.com.
