Don't bring back memories o! My mouth don dey water LOL

[list]
[li]Agbalomo (aka star apple)[/li]
[li]Manpower (roasted dry maize - until someone brought for me last week, I hadn't had any since 1993!!) When I go, maize is usually out of season (note I call it maize and not corn, which is what many pple from my experience back in naija are calling it, like oyibo grin)[/li]
[li]Grade 1 mango[/li]
[li]Guava[/li]
[li]Periwinkle in the shell (that de-shelled stuff isn't the same)[/li]
[li]Pounded yam prepared in a mortar[/li]
[li]Grapefruit with husk so thick and sweet, u can eat it too grin[/li]
[/list]

I will stop for now. Most of these, sure, are in the states, but nothing beats that home flavor (dust, look, feel etc), sho gbo? smiley
