@crypticat just completed his epic trip to Negril, Jamaica. Yes mon,
historic times in Negril and as seen on Reggaesteem. What a wonderful sojourn he has undertaken. Epic in the sense that the very first jahm transactions transpired. He bought everyone a round of beers @miyard and some spices and hot sauce at @iriegiftshop.
From iriegiftshops very first post on Reggaesteem we can witness the vast column of available merchandise that can be exchanged by using the jahm reward token.
Spices, herbs, cigars, shirts, hats
paraphernalia beyond your wildest dreams.
Can’t wait to shop and use jahm there and the many other venues where the jahm accepted here sticker is displayed.
With the recent happenings, #JAHM is making headway as a more conventional means of transaction in Jamaica. Maybe one day jahm will also be accepted at the Hi-Lo supermarket as all this FOMO begins to spread.
So, the featured photo in this very post was taken in the old Ho-Lo Supermarket (I have learned from @donald.porter that the Hi-Lo has since moved locations). Focus on the middle row. It shows a wide variety of jams and jellies that can be purchased and their prices posted in Jamaican J’s. Check out the pallet of colors distributed here.
All designed to ‘catch’ your attention. “Buy me,” they scream.
Brands on display, include:
So with all these choices, which one to select? Is it based on brand?
Is it based on presentation? Is it based on price? What a dilemma.
What would I do? Sales lady,
excuse me, need to pick your brain. I’m so confused, how do I choose.
That almost always works.
On my trips I always purchase jars and jars of guava jelly and jams,
and yes jerk seasoning. I like to gift them out to my people. All made
right there in Jamaica, can not
be anymore authentic than that.
The question I leave you with is:
Do you want fries with that hot
spicy jerk chicken?
