GRAPEVINE’S PURCHASES THAT JUSTIFY EXISTENCE

Published August 19, 2005

Yo-Yos from Tiger
Available at a mere 200 ISK, the Duncan Butterfly and Imperial Professional-grade Yo-Yos, with informative training CD are material possessions you can’t afford not to buy. Also available, the Williams Tornado Yo-Yo, but those are for mere show-offs, not professionals. Available at Tiger, Kringlan and Laugavegur.
Coffee drinks at 10-11
150 ISK. While Iceland has many coffee places, (see page 42), 10-11 has now introduced an extremely palatable to-go coffee. Bar.
Lýsi
Lýsi, or cod-liver oil, has been keeping Icelanders healthy for hundreds of years. In fact, many consider it a wonder drug. That is, those who don’t gag at the thought of the product they had to drink in the morning before they got their orange juice. Available for purchase at all grocery stores at prices starting at 440 ISK, you must try this once.
Rubicon Exotic Soft Drinks
Rubicon Exotic Soft Drinks. You don’t know pleasure until you cross the Rubicon; available at Krónan supermarket in flavours ranging from passion fruit to lychee and guanabana, all for only 43 ISK a can. Best purchased on Saturdays, or as Krónan calls the day, Nammidagur (candy day), when Krónan’s respectable Nammibarinn (candy bar) is on a ridiculously low-priced sale.
