Mexico: Land of Kranky!

Mexico is like Canada in many ways. But it's the differences that I appreciated on our second visit to that lovely country to the south. And nowhere are those differences more pronounced than at the grocery store.

Kranky never felt so good.


In the northern part of North America, Sugar Smacks became Honey Smacks, but the Mexican cereal industry feels no need to condescendingly rename its creations. Azucaradas: almost one kilogram of pure azĂșcar!

Yay! A Lovingly sarcastic (or sarcastically loving) cerealocentric sweets blog with a Canadian point of view. It was worth the wait.

I want to know what happened to the forlorn looking box of cereal to the right of the Chok Attack. Despite the smile on the happily anthropmorphized spokescharacter's face the box looks like it was run over by a tourista laden burro. Heavily creased, split at the seam, lid askew, did anyone buy this sad example of Maizoro brand Corn Flakes? Even in better times (http://www.maizoro.com.mx/flashsite/index.html) who would choose this unimaginatively named competitor over a slam dunking zebra ( with 15% more FREE! ) or a too cool for school shark? Maybe a ce-really big discount cleared this item from the shelves but I fear a worse fate for Senor Flakes.

I dont know if you have, I do not have the time to check all of your posts, but you guys should seriously try making spaghetti tacos. They are amazingly delicious, and very easy to make. All you do is make some pasta (small noodles work best). Then, when the pasta is done, put on the sauce (meat-flavored) and then throw it in a taco shell and top with grated parmesan and mozzarella cheese! then, you have yourself a weird, wacky and DELICIOUS meal! Enjoy!
