The weenies are gross, but our dogs eat one each morning before their workout. They love the cheapest ones. I'm not a fan anyway.... Deli meats??? Shaky, but if you are here long enough, some are OK to fill the need. A smoked Oaxaca cheese, Sabori extra fina pavo (with tomato and pickles) makes an amazing sandwich!

Extra sharp cheddar is unavailable here in Zihuatanejo, but when someone actively contacts us and asks what we want, we ask for a small, about 8 ounce bar of extra sharp, not frozen if possible. It lasts us about a month in small slices that we savor!!! Other than that, Taco Bell, Burger King and Panda Express, we want for nothing.

Playaboy, Thank you for the list. I have an appointment with my lawyer to decipher it for me. Thanks, again. I didn't see eggs, but I know I can get them there.

Tallyho, I am hesitant about the hot dogs, cheese, cottage cheese. Not sure about the milk, cold cereal, lunch meat, and unable to identify most cuts of meat when I have been there. It will be an adventure. I like to cook outdoors and carry a 22 inch Weber and charcoal with me.

Hot dogs in our opinion aren't great, but the dogs love them!

Milk, any type you want is readily available here, and in the ultra pasteurized form, including almond. Great stuff! Cold cereal (I can't eat that stuff) all of your brands are here.

Lunch meat, many types and brands are readily available, don't know for sure, we aren't close to the US border.

Cuts of meat? Learn them!!! We grill on our Weber gas BBQ probably 4 nights a week, and are always exploring what is here. Just finished some great filet mignon, we buy them whole and used to take them back to the US with us, they are so good.

Cottage cheese is now available, and from several brands including the low fat versions. (That's what we get). It's not the same as the US version, larger curd, but after a year or so without it, we keep it in the refrigerator all the time and love it.

Cheese?? OMG! Except for cheddar, we prefer the Mexican cheeses, and fortunately we are close enough to Oaxaca to get the fresh version of their cheese, not the commercial ones. We always have Oaxaca, Mancheco, Chihuahua and ground cheese (panela) in the fridge along with imported parmesan and local produced bleu cheese and brie. We LOVE our cheese!

Yes, we are foodies and at least Playaboy can attest to the fact that we work out hard enough that we aren't fatties to go with it. Sure could be though!!

Food is wonderful stuff. In a foreign country, better, because you can learn, eat, taste and explore it.

Just remember the rules as to what is legal to import!!!
