I also have fond memories as a child growing up in (and near) Washington DC, of my visiting teenage uncle, from South Dakota, who loved the exotic foods he found at Safeway International. I am certain he is the reason I am in the food business today. I am still adventerous enough to try (almost) any food, but when you have already eaten chocolate covered ants and crickets and canned baby octopi at age six, there is a little baby foodie inside you-lol!
