Maybe the most "smuggled" item by gringos, to our town, is butter from the US or Canada. Lots of smuggled Costco butter.

The closest Costco to San CArlos Sonora does carry Costco butter...............but ONLY unsalted. Very strange, in a country that loves salty items.

A couple of lines from a song I learned as a kid;
.....where the sopa is not soap,
the ropa is not rope,
and the butter is 'meant ta kill ya'!




If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

Yes, Baja dairy butters have a high level of moisture that makes them hard to use in baking. Lala, etc.

But both Walmart and Soriana in Rosarito also have high quality imported European butters in the refrigerated cases, it you are willing to pay a little bit more. Low moisture, good taste.

They also sell some great locally made tequila with the SANDRA'S label on it. You have to ask for it from the bartender.:bounce:

I could not find "HALIOTIS" in the Mexican dictionary. So what does "ABULON" mean then?
