Ever since sending in our immigration application I’ve been “mourning” Mexico an missing Canada all at the same time.
More about that in another post but today I was so happy to go to Walmart and buy a *taste* of home!
I’ve never been a big Root beer drinker, but I’ve always liked to have the odd one. For some reason I’ve been craving one these last few months and I finally got a hold of a bottle 🙂 This is a regular sized bottle, 591ML, not the big 2L ones and it was 35.99 pesos as you can see. Which is approximately $2.75 CAN. It was a wonderful $2.75 spent.
SPITZ!! Oh how I love thee. These babies were about $2.40 for a small bag. I bought 2! These remind me of camping with my sister and family. We would both stay up late playing cards and eating spitz until our mouths were raw and we couldn’t eat anymore.
These are some of my favorite crackers that I first tried on the plane to Mexico. I could only find them when I grocery shopped in the USA but I was horrified to see the price of just over 7.00 CAN for one box of crackers! Needless to say, I did not walk out of the store with these.
The international aisles are pricey, but when you live thousands of miles away from *home* and don’t get to visit often and enjoy the things you loved, it’s worth the splurge every now and then.
Until next time…
