Hey, Ant! Your reply makes sense to me. Thanks!
If there's any advice I would give to travelers, it is this: eat the local food over national fast food when you travel. If you have to eat at a
national fast food chain, try to find an item that caters to local tastes. And don't be embarrassed about ordering or asking about an item...they
already know you're not a local by the way you talk or dress. Just enjoy the experience and the 99% of the time locals are happy to share their
cuisine with you.
Oh, my idea that northerners don't have the sweet tea in their culture might come from the fact that sugar was a southern crop. They could use
of sugar, whereas their northern neighbors might have to use it more sparingly, having to import it.
By the time one gets to CA, the tea is sweetened artificially, just as one might expect from a land of botox and boob jobs. Don't, don't, for the
love of God, people, drink artificially sweetened tea. It's an abomination. I grew up with homemade lemonade made with cups of white sugar; I avoid
the stuff sold in stores.
