YES!  It is true.  We finally have Vanilla Wafers and this...
That is right folks!  We finally after years have Twinkies, KingDongs, Cupcake substitutes.  They taste just like the real thing.  I am in heaven.  Junk food heaven I tell ya!

However as good as it is...There are just a few things missing that I miss from the states.  Here are the top 10 food items I crave but cannot get in Saltillo.
1. Dinty Moore beef stew.  Dad used to make this on thin pepperidge farm bread toasted and buttered.  Oh my was it good!  Yeah I wish they had this here in Saltillo.

2. Eggnog-  We do not get eggnog down here.  Boy I miss it alot especially at Christmas time.

3. Yeo´s lychee drink-  If you have never tried this it is like a little slice of heaven in your mouth.  It is SO good.  They do get lychees down here but not the full drink like above.  I used to buy it by the case in Atlanta.

4. Mello Yello- They have most of the soft drinks down here except this one.  I remember sugarhighed out of my mind watching HBO drinking these by the can.  Oh good times.

5. Overstuffed ravioli-  There is ravioli down here but it is the kind ya gotta soak in water and cook then add your own sauce etc.  Boy I really miss the Chef Boyardee Ravioli though.  That and the above Mello Yello and I could call it a day.  

6. Smucker´s mint jelly- We get the Strawberry, peach jelly down here but not mint.  Mint Jelly is an acquired taste mind you but I used to love it as a kid.

7. Smucker´s Orange Jelly- I cannot believe I cannot find this down here in Saltillo.  You would think it would be really common to get but it is not available so far.
8. Fanta grape soda-  The best.  I loved it when the Dreadnoks from Gi Joe would have this in the comic and cartoon.  I JUST found some Fanta grape at a little tienda the other day BUT it was in a bottle.  I need the canned version.
9. Entenmann´s chocolate donuts- These are so awesome.  Even better were the milk chocolate kind that came out a few years later.  

10. Peppermint ice cream-  Oh yeah!  Another Christmas classic that I miss was this spicy concoction.  

Well that is it.  Get crackin Saltillo!

  1. Can't miss the wonderful styling and interior at this place. As I walked upstairs, my eyes wandered about the brick wall interior and the overall décor. This is by far one of the best Chicago venues to organize event.
