With the recent popularity of froyo aka frozen yogurt – cue Yeh!, Pinkberry and others – gelato seems to have taken a back seat. Places like Havre aux Glaces and Leo le Glacier in Montreal as well as La Dolce Vita and Paysanne Gelato in the West Island are part of the growing movement to bring it back. Every bucket of gelato is unique, from the color, the consistency and of course, the taste.
Frankfurters, frank, weenie/wienie, wiener, dog, wienerdog (think Welcome to the Dollhouse), danger dogs, and red hots are all colloquial terms for the pervasive social and cultural phenomenon of the hot dog. Costco sells the best of them. The juicy jumbos (literally) are exactly what they are advertised to be: mouthwateringly thick and moist and large enough to be called jumbo in size. To sweeten the deal even further, these dogs are cheap – a large refillable drink cup and the dog itself come to $1.50 and no one can come close to beating that. Once in a while, I will make the effort to go here just to eat the hot dogs. I’m not joking.
