Pineapple Crush

It’s sweet and really doesn’t taste that well but I like a can of pineapple crush every now and then. It’s sunday night and I just finished a can I purchased a couple of days ago.

Our son-in-law and family live in the ottawa area and we try and remember to carry a few cans when we visit them. We have tried to purchase the crush product in Ottawa but as far as we know it is not available.

I just found an article that was published in The Telegram back on Sept 21,2016. The article was written  by Ashley Fitzpatrick and it is headlined Newfoundland Labrador Flavor Fascination. Story here.

Apparently, there is a facebook group called “Newfoundland Pineapple Crush Pride.”

For some unknown reason many Newfoundlanders love their pineapple crush. Our son-in-law calls it his sugar kick.

I just finished the only can we have in the house and it will be another month or so before I’ll buy another. Part of the reason is that I stopped drinking pop  about 18 months ago to see if it was adding to my gout attack. Surprising, I have not had a bad gout attack since. It may have been the access sugar that I was consuming as I was not drinking a significant amount of water.

Enjoy your pineapple crush.
