So I dropped by Brasil Legal today. Managed to tow away 2 - 12 packs of Guarana at $7 something each. Also packages of both white and regular chocolate BIS, Vigor cream cheese spread (over $4 yikes!), and Yoki tapioca flour (to make pao de quejo, which i hope was right if not it was manioc). Total bill was about 24 buckaroos.
I guess it makes the hubby happy. Oh I must note that the Guarana is cheaper buying there than online at Sendexnet which is $11.90 for a 12 pack. I completely forgot it was that expensive, but they offer free shipping if you order over $40.
I didn't get to go the other store as I was already in sticker shock. I just need to keep mumbling to myself that food is not the whole way to a man's heart, but damn near half way.
Also I did not order the feojada (which they had some ready to order), because it would've put a deeper whole in my pocket. I was told that it plated up with other trimmings was about $10. I need to hear from others first that its worth every penny before I go diving in. LMK.
