    We lived in Jeddah in 1998-2000 and my kids and I still miss the gallon jugs of strawberry juice and the variety of juices you could buy in the grocery store! They were so delicious.

    That does look like a bar. I have many Mormon relatives who of course don’t drink alcohol but they have a great variety of tasty non alcoholic drinks that they make.
