Jamaica Greater CakeAbout 4 -5 years ago I went home and I wanted some Jamaica treats to take back to America to share with my co workers but I couldn’t find anything . I do know that when you trying to get hard to find stuff then chances are we can find it at the drug store(pharmacy). The drug stores in Jamaica sells basically everything. I generally buy my vanilla, rosewater , and almond combine together from Victory Drug Store on Cumberland Road in Spanish Town. If you want good vanilla Victory is the place.
So I thought that I would be able to get some grater cake, peanut cake or gizzada at Vickory Drug Store but I was out of luck. I left the store mumbling and cussing to myself.  I saw other candy and treats but none that I desire, none that will engage my childhood memories. I was very disappointed it shouldn’t be so difficult for me to find what I thought was a simple thing that used to be made right here in Jamaica.
Years went by so when I went home I would take bun, cheese and rum to my friends and coworkers. Now I’m seeing a change I saw more than one person along the Village Mall selling grater cake , peanut cake and gizzada. I felt so good inside, I was so surprised to know that such a simple thing could make me feel so proud. I could feel the good old days and the childhood memories  stirred up, what a joy it was. I couldn’t resist getting some grater cake to munch on.
The feeling was great every trip I take home, which is becoming more and more often.  I’m feeling  more relaxed and comfortable and hoping for the day when it will be there will be a reverse in my travels.
