Has any one tried Unterburg? Its an apertif type drink that I had in Germany. Its supposed to settle the stomache after a big meal. The bottle is tiny, about 2 inches tall. It comes in packages with 10 bottles or so, and each bottle is an individual serving.

You can never know too many people in the celery biz.

Nobody has yet mentioned the celery mafia, responsible for the boxing day celery massacre in 1942. Terrible,terrible example of what young hooligans hyped up on celery can do. I can't stand celery. I hope bush jr can take time out from declaring all his wars to declare war on celery!

Could you post the info that is too small to read?
Especially the address.

I'm from Ohio. That is interesting, so I might have to look into it. I never would have guessed that they made absinthe in Cinncinnati.

Or places to stick in his pee-shooter.

I shun celery.

Man will never run out of things to stick in peanut butter.

"Could any of us, really, picture our lives without celery? I think not!"

There are some things Man was not meant to know.

Stare not into the Celery Void, lest you have no idea what to do with your peaunut butter.

Yay Kalamazoo!

WAS the celery capital, early in the last century. I can't really say I know too many people in the celery business today.

I'm on the other corner of OH. Have been to cincinnati. Never heard of it though.

Celery in Kalamazoo!:

and of course, Dr. Brown's celery soda, first produced in 1869, the height of the golden age of celery:

Is it any wonder the history of absinthe and the history of celery are so intertwined.

Could any of us, really, picture our lives without celery? I think not!

Well, of covrse.

The bottle looks un-Americanly tiny! So much for The Trivmph of American Indvstry.

Wouldn't ya know it!

Something about the ad copy and the bottle illustration whispers: bad stuff.

By Mr_Rabid on Wednesday, March 27, 2002 - 02:58 pm: Edit

Is anyone out there from Ohio?

A challenge, gentlemen... find a full bottle.

By Chevalier on Wednesday, March 27, 2002 - 12:10 pm: Edit

Interesting ... it's always great to find evidence of absinthe in America. Oxygenée's plated absinthe spoon, for example. Absinthe from New Orleans. And now this! It may have been schlock, but ...

By Verdigris_Harpy on Wednesday, March 27, 2002 - 11:57 am: Edit

Sounds like laxitive.

Nice ad,though.
