As boats congregate in San Diego, preparing to head south to Mexico, it seems timely to comment on provisioning in Mexico.
Update October 22, 2014: Surprise, surprise, we found plenty of (small size) Tillamook Aged Cheddar (pretty decent cheese) at the Mazatlan Gran Plaza Mega store.
Update: November 3: Unfortunately, no more Tillamook cheddar! And our hopes are dashed.... Aged Cheddar is very hard to find (even harder in La Paz)
Maple syrup (the real stuff): (for Canadians) once you have real maple syrup, it is rather difficult to accept "Log Cabin" or "Aunt Jemina" "maple-flavoured" syrups. Only place we've found real syrup was at Costco.
Molasses: Still have not found molasses in Mexico.
Update October 22, 2014: Another surprise, we see new varieties of dental floss at the Mazatlan Gran Plaza Mega store. (Did they read our blog post?)
