My wife came home with a bag of ginger snaps. I love ginger snaps. Wish I didn't have a sinus infection so I could smell and taste them.

I like ginger snaps, and I like ginger ale. After all these years, I decided to start buying fresh ginger (weird looking things) and... I chop up a slice into little pieces and throw it into the coffee pot when I make a cup or two. It steeps in there while the coffee is brewing and sitting, and then I pour the coffee through a mesh strainer into my cup. I'm sure that sounds pretty strange, but this concoction tastes great (to me).

If flying insects are most of your diet, ginger coffee has got to be a nice change.

Some of the reddish-colored ones are really bitter!

Actually, that sounds pretty good.

I was looking at AR15.com and they were talking about ginger snaps on there, too. Someone said he liked Murray Brand Ginger Snaps with his coffee. That's also one of my favorites, only second to some that I can get at a local bakery.

Patrick, you mentioned ginger ale. I wish I could get some Red Rock Ginger Ale up to you. Made here in Atlanta and it's made with real ginger. Nothing like the Polar or Canada Dry offerings. It's difficult to drink w/o burning your nose.

Is it marketed nationally (across the States) or is it only sold regionally?

If it's available across the country, I can check for it the next time I'm picking up car parts/eBay items across the border in Bellingham, WA.

It's more than just a local distribution. http://www.beveragesdirect....Rock-Ginger-Ale.aspx

You really, really don't want to burp this stuff through your nose unless you need to clear your sinuses.

A quote from an online shipper:

Red Rock Ginger Ale has been bottled in Atlanta, Georgia since 1885. "Just the right bite!". This classic ginger ale is still made the good old-fashioned way with pure cane sugar.

The caption above the logo reads "Just The Right Bite" ,and you can really taste the ginger. Thats because it contains real ginger in the flavoring. Some say you could classify this as a ginger beer since it has a spicy kick.

See my edit above. And according to the AR15 forum, coffee and ginger isn't such an unusual thing.

I suspect one or two of the other ingredients I use in my coffee (along with the ginger) are a little different - salt, cinnamon, baking soda... and turmeric.

I sometimes add a little powdered ginger in my pancake/waffle batter--before I add the milk and egg.

The Red Rock Ginger Ale sounds pretty good. But, we here in Michigan really like our Vernors Ginger Ale. It too has a bite and all of the other ones I have tried are wimpy. So maybe sometime I will get a chance to try the Red Rock Ginger Ale.

Come on down for the 20th Anniversary of Run For The Hills and I'll buy you a 6-pack. We have Vernors down here, too and the Red Rock is stronger. Patrick, the offer is made to you, too.

Red Rock is supposed to be sold by Kroger stores, which is based in Cincinnati, so it might be available up that way.

Ginger in pancakes sounds pretty good. I'll be trying that, soon.

Ginger naps with peanut butter on them is one of my favorite snacks, washed down with a Cola.

The Kyoto Bowl restaurants in Phoenix have the red pickled ginger toppings you can put on the various rice bowls.
Love that stuff!
