Only in Newfoundland

The girls (Christa, Jennifer) and I went to Freezerland during our lunch break to buy some "Newfie only" stuff.

It may seem strange but, yes, there are some snacks, foods, items, etc. that only Newfies understand and appreciate. Except for the occasional speciality store or aisle at the grocery, these things are rather hard come by:

Pineapple and Lime Pop
Caramelog Bars
Salt beef
Sunrise Bologna
Yellow crunchits
Tee Vees and Jam Jams
Savoury (the stuff grown in Mount Pearl does so taste different)
Purity Syrup
Purity Candies (barrels & kisses & peppermint nobs)
Fussels Cream
Bakeapples
Partridgeberries
Salt Cod
Brookfield ice cream
snowballs
Hard bread
Cream Crackers and Milk lunch crackers

What are your favourites? I'd love to have a "Chipper" right about now :)

Canned Irish Stew and Canned Meatballs and Gravy are a couple of things that miss along with everything on your list.
