I'm pretty sure you can find mac and cheese at the Ipanema branch.


What's the exchange in US dollars for the bottle of Canadian maple syrup? I'm very curious to know...


R$45 equals $20 US or $23.60 Cdn
What is the size? 350ml? 12oz? or 375 ml (12.7 oz)?
A note about Hershey's chocolate. (I know, you did not mention it) I live in Canada. My UK friends always said the US raved over their Hershey's and they wondered why, as it was inferior to British stuff. I actually thought Hershey's was pretty good until I learned that the Canadian recipe that is made in Canada for Hershey's for the Canadian market is different than the US one,. We like more milk.


If I had some gurantee that I could wrap a bottle of Cdn maple syrup up safely I'd mail it to you...


Rachel, if you can wait till june i'll happily bring some mac & cheese in my suitcase.. hehehe.. about Canadian maple syrup, it's way more expensive than jemima's one. I'd say that 350ml at cotsco for CAN15$ maybe?(haven't been shopping in a while) but it's costco.. the ones for tourists are wayyyy more expensive.
I wish here in Vancouver we could find brazilian products.. it's available in Toronto, but Vancouverites go shopping at the market in Seattle.
Feliz 2009


I was reading the list to Alan when he suddenly jumped up: "Aunt Jemima is *not* maple syrup!" Hehehe, as a Canadian and a Quebecer, he cannot accept any sort of syrup that is not pure maple syrup ;)

PS: for those of you buying &15 maple syrup - the best stuff is the ones that come in cans (that's right, cans) and hail from Quebec. It cost about $5 for a 500ml can in Quebec (here in Toronto I found it for about 7$ at a local health food store). The fancy bottles are for tourists...


cool to find all of that in one store. I have been able to find just abouot all of that list (except the Junior mints) at Carrefour or Extra, but it is spotty. Zona Sul supermarket usually has a lot of that stuff too. Supermarkets discontinue or run out of stuff a lot, so where to get such items always changes. I used to be able to get mac 'n cheese at Carrefour, but have not seen it in a while. Have you checked out the WalMart in Barra? I bet they would have some of this stuff too.


I noticed today that the Zona Sul on Rua Gois in Leblon has Skippy Peanut Butter, both regular and crunchy.

hey go to Carrefour--they have all that junk there too! not that i've been to your carrefour, but im making an assumption. :)
