Although I'm Canadian, I worked a lot in the US. We share a lot of the same food and drink, but they have different names. Up here it's Kraft Dinner not Kraft Mac and Cheese. We eat Pizza Pops, not Pizza Pockets. We buy our beer in 6 packs, a box (12 or 15 pack) or a two-four. Hard liquor is a Mickey (13 oz), a two-six, a 40 pounder (40 oz) or a Handle (60 oz).

When I spent a whole summer as a kid in St.Claude, Manitoba we sometimes went into Winnipeg for a 'nip' which turned out to be a burger. Circa 1968....

I dunno bout that...I always had pizza POCKETS in the freezer for my sons. It's normaly referd to as "K.D." If your buying your beer in 6 packs HT, then I can only say your planning for failure!!(& its called a "poverty pack")

I like Coors Banquet, pretty good beer. But, my go to beer is Old Milwaukee....up here in BC we nick named it 'ladies' because of the girls on the label.

Yeah till I looked on Google Earth I had no idea how close to you we were.
Oh, we were in the lakeside cabin from he!!!
Got invited by "friends".
Place was filthy & even the resident rats were named "Mervyn" I remember!
Dead
Went fishing under some big concrete dam, & canoed  to "smugglers creek" where one of them lit a fire & we dodged exploding rocks for a while!
