Is this a promo for your latest fair food, Gravy-on-a-Stick? (better make that deep-fried!)

It's a teaser, so we can't tell you too much yet. Folks just love the taste of Gravy-on-Stick, but some hoity toity types say it's too messy. I'm planning to do a test market with a push cart and my product in the Hamptons in October. Them Yankees love their gravy!

Western boys like me love pudding.

WAT - Pudding and gravy are the two most important blocks to build a healthy food pyramid.

My partner is from Missouri and no one loves gravy more than he does...

I'm from that part of the country too, but my mother never allowed gravy in the house.

This thing really has taken on a life of its own, hasn't it?

Gavin - Wow, gravy haiku. I could see a little Zen-esque compiled with gravy haiku written by famous people on the topic. Madeline Albright, Suzanne Somers, Alan Greenspan, Sylvia Plath, Walker Percy, Thomas L. Friedman are just a few who've written on this topic. Greenspan's allegories about the markets running like brown rivers of gravy are especially powerful.

Dave - As I think you well know, gravy is life itself.

t$ - Welcome Yes, I think that's why vegans are so big on smoothies. I could never be a true vegan because of my penchant for honey and love of very lumpy gravy.

I grew up in Pennsylvania Dutch and Amish country, where very little is ingested without a coating of gravy. When I began working in South Philadelphia, on many occasions I would hear people discussing their gravy. I began to think the whole world was obsessed with gravy until I learned that many Italians, at least in So. Phila, refer to their tomato sauce as "gravy".
As for me, I prefer biscuits and country gravy at Sunday Gospel Brunch.

Marxsny, my Italian granny in New Orleans always used to call her spaghetti sauce "red gravy," which used to kind of gross me out as a kid. It didn't help that, contrary to the stereotype, my Italian granny wasn't really such a great cook.

Mark - Well, the Bay area did contribute Wavy Gravy to the whole culture. Man, I think I may just have to break down and launch a new blog devoted to all things gravy at this rate. And I never touch the stuff.

Dave - Being from the Midwest, when we had spaghetti (we didn't know there was something called pasta until around 1982 or so), my mom would ask "Do you want that with red or white topping?" Was it just a Midwest thing or did Southerners also have something called "Lemon Ice Box Pie"? I've not heard about that in eons.

We do indeed have lemon icebox pie here in the NO, and my mom makes a mean one.

"White topping" makes me think of Cool Whip. Which would be awesome on lemon ice box pie OR spaghetti.
