tastes of home

McKenzie's petit fours. Glorious teeny little cakes. What
brought me to these is the comments on this really beautiful
post over here.

I am so, so glad that there are others out there like me. I'm only 26, but I refuse to let the New Orleans of my childhood die. I still hiss at the name Rite Aid - they stole my K & B. Schwegmanns, McKenzie's, D.H. Holmes...places of my childhood that are gone, but not forgotten.

Josh and I still refer to any convenience store as "Time Saver" We got visibly excited while driving through Hammond to see that some of them still exist.

Actually Time Saver has had a resurgence, after the EZ-Serves failed. The one on the way to my gramma's house is back to a Time Saver again.

You know that Fresh Market used to be a K&B?
