Yes, we have it too - "orgeade" [Or'Zad@]. Old-fashioned in the Netherlands, popular in Suriname, and if you want it you have to go to a Surinam or Chinese import shop ("toko", which is Indonesian for "shop" but specifically used for "Asian import shop"). As to strange foods - Valdyans eat roast hedgehogs, baked in clay in the embers of a fire, and starling pies (especially in years with a lot of starlings, when they become a pest). Catching hedgehogs and starlings is children's work. Irina Varsinen an laynynay, saraz no arlet rastynay. (myself) (English) (Nederlands)
