Where can I find it?

Ottogi honey citron tea is considered a mix for tea, but it also can double as a marmalade.

Q: Last December, I found a fabulous honey citron tea at Costco. It is imported from Korea and contains citron fruit, honey and sugar. It smells and tastes delicious. I have prepared it hot or cold and have actually stirred it into regular tea. Costco no longer carries this item. Can you help me find it? I drink this every day. Thank you, Brenda Bloomer, email

A: This traditional Korean drink enjoys a reputation not only for its fruity fragrance and flavor but because of its supposed nutritional benefits that range from relieving sore throats and coughs to soothing seasickness and enhancing skin complexion. While it’s considered a tea, it looks like a marmalade, and it’s not uncommon to see it spread on toast. You’ll find Ottogi honey citron tea, 35.27-ounce jars for $6.99, at Buford Highway Farmers Market, 5600 Buford Highway, Atlanta, 770-455-0770. It’s located on aisle 31, on a shelf to the left of the sushi counter.

Q: I have used Gillette foamy menthol shaving cream for more than 50 years but, suddenly, they quit making it. At least I can’t find it anywhere. I had the same problem a short while ago but finally found it at Wal-Mart. Now it’s gone again. One online pharmacy says they have it but the shipping cost is more than the product price. I would be happy to buy a few dozen cans if I only knew where in the Atlanta metro area to shop. Can you help? Thanks. Andy Moon, email

A: According to Gillette, the foamy menthol shave cream is still in production. Call Tuxedo Pharmacy, 164 Wieuca Road, Atlanta, 404-255-3022, and place an order. You can usually pick it up at the store by the next business day, and there are no shipping charges. Each can costs $3.99.

Q: I moved to Georgia in 2013. My one favorite soda is Moxie, which comes in an orange can. I can’t find it anywhere, and I’m lucky that friends who drive to Georgia bring me a case. Can you help me? Thank you. Denise Roman, Powder Springs

A: I have a pair of steady sources of Moxie, the official soft drink of Maine, but in 12-ounce bottles, not cans. You can find Moxie at David’s Produce and Country Store, 3561 Lavista Road, Decatur, 404-325-0709, and also at Kudzu and Company, 6450 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs, 404-255-2548. Kudzu offers vintage items, gift ware and plenty of old-time sodas. It’s priced at about $2 each at both stores.

Q: I am interested in finding New England-style hot dog rolls. I’ve looked all around the Atlanta area and, so far, no luck. Most people don’t even know what I’m talking about. Let me know if you have any luck. Thanks. Bob Hulihan, Acworth

A: Bob, these are tricky because they go by several different names — from Maine lobster buns and Frankfurt rolls to top-split hot dog buns. Locally, you can get Pepperidge Farm Bakery Classics top-sliced hot dog buns, which are the New England-style rolls. They’re available eight to a package, and you can select from regular white rolls or golden potato. The packages are available for $3.29 each at Buford Highway Farmers Market, 5600 Buford Hwy., Atlanta, 770-455-0770. Look for them in the middle of aisle 13. Note that if you search for Pepperidge Farm top-sliced buns online, you’ll find them listed in many local Target stores, but when I called the stores, I was told that they’re no longer in stock.
