    In Oakland, I picked up some So Delicious coconut water mango sorbet, $1.99...excellent. The coconut water makes a difference.

      I also picked up a pint of the same So Delicious Mango sorbet but I didn't open it yet so I didn't want to say anything ....... glad to hear that it's good!

            Is that at the south end of the shopping district that has Hometown Buffet at the north end? Appian Way exit?

              Yeah, but it's further south than the Best Buy also. When I'm going E80, I usually take the Fitzgerald Exit right before Appian Way

          Apparently there's no May 2011 thread.

          Berkeley: about four or five varieties of Cru Beaujolais from various producers and years. I think I saw some Chenas, Julienas, Morgon, and Regnie. All under $10.
