Jungle Jims

Today's post is all about the Cincinnati food!  First off they have skyline.  If you've never heard of it, I'd say it is definitly worth a try.  We don't have it on the West coast and I actually didn't know this sort of thing existed until I met Bob.  It is basically a type of chili that you put over noodles and smother in cheese.  The chili is almost the same consistency as spaghetti sauce.  They also put it over fries and hot dogs.  I like it, but I'm not the biggest fan.  We usually go once per visit and that is just perfect for me.  Some people really really love it.
My favorite is Graters ice cream.  We really need to get one of these on the west coast.  They sell a chocolate chunk raspberry ice cream that is delicious.  We went there a couple times over our visit.
We also made a trip out to Jungle Jims.  This was my first time there and it was pretty interesting.  It is basically a huge grocery store with lots of different cultural foods in it as well as fun animal (fake) and other displays everywhere in the store.  It was really fun to explore and the kids especially liked it.

Scarlett was not a fan of the fish section.

I thought these little pineapples were cute.
They even had a little movie theatre showing a film of how the store got started.  It all began with a little bit weird guy named Jim.

And that was our trip to the grocery store.
