It is an amazing store!
We used to shop there 8, 9 and 10 years ago and it was ok.
It wasn't amazing.
It is now amazing.
It now has loads of gringo products!
Amazing loads of gringo products!
Red Hill bread products, Tabasco Chipotle Sauce, dill pickles, bleu cheese, feta, Lawry's Garlic Salt, English muffins, smoked gouda, pita bread, celery seed, dill, Skippy Super Chunk Peanut Butter, Cheese Itz, Starbucks French Roast whole bean coffee, blah, blah, blah.
Those "years ago" we would be thrilled just to find cheddar cheese.
With the mass of gringos coming here, CCC started carrying all these items we could never find before.
Every time I go I wander a couple of aisles in awe.
Awe aisles I now call them.
And yes, sometimes you pay the premium.
I learned on the peanut butter to check the price.
I thought it was a little over 40 pesos.
Turned out it was a little over 70 pesos.
Back to rationing the peanut butter.
Well, Wayne of "Capricorn Cat" (the "CC" of the post title) went down the awe aisle of wine.
And didn't check the prices...
Price checking machine was broken (which is why I did NOT buy those Starbucks coffee beans yesterday...)
So he ended up with a couple bottles of wine that were over 330 pesos!
$33 US dollars!
So he opened one last night as we were saying our goodbyes...
They are headed across to the mainland today!
And a little inside joke for "Capricorn Cat
Wayne, work on not saying "shit" so much.
Or I will officially change your boat name to "Cat Shit".
Bye Guys ~ safe and fun trip!
