I love going grocery shopping here. The first time I went it was challenging since, you know, most items are labeled en español and yo sólo hablo un poco de español. Of course, even going through the produce section was an adventure. (“I should google images of Costa Rican fruit and vegetables when I get home and see if that’s something I might like. Also, how to eat it.”)
The manufacturers are different. The packaging is different. And often, the products are just different.
That I can tell, Dos Pinos is the major dairy/juice product manufacturer in the country. I’ve even seen their big facility in the big city!!
And here I’d like to point out that everything looks okay with the bunny. Bunny seems normal. Doesn’t have any kind of noticeable anger issues. But these guys…
Maybe it’s just me. Maybe I’m finally going bat-sh#t crazy living alone in Costa Rica. Maybe I have too much time on my hands. (What’s that, Wilson? No, just let me finish… Wilson, let me finish thi… I swear on all things holy I am going to put a hole in you!!)
That’s it for now. Nothing crazy exotic here, but I do enjoy the shift in products before me. And even though I do have some very sugary items on display here, my diet is actually much healthier these days. It’s much easier to eat healthier here, really. And I make an effort. Which is good.
And in truth, I really did buy the cereals JUST to photograph them. That I devoured the contents of those boxes is beside the point.
