Costa Rican Grocery Store

This post is not really a Costa Rica Highlight but it’s a short topic that I can quickly put up before I face plant into my bed.  You see, J passed his flu onto me and I, in turn, passed it along to Wildman.  Cutie Pie is proving to be the man with the iron immune system or our family’s Mr. Musculo.  Thank goodness!  We’ve been miserable around here.  I’m slowly starting to feel better but J is out of town so I’ve been struggling to keep it all together.  Wildman has missed the last three days of school due to a fever, runny nose and general crudiness.  It’s all I can do to make it to bed time and, of course, Cutie Pie (the well one) is not at all tired…

Enough of that.  On to the groceries!

Most of the grocery stores in the La Fortuna area are called “supers”.  There was the Mega Super, the Mini Super, the Super Christian (?), etc.  J and I hit the grocery store a couple of times to stock up on drinks for our room at the first resort we stayed at because it was not all inclusive.  I refuse to pay $6 for a bottle of water.  We were surprised to find that the grocery store prices were quite hefty.  They were certainly less expensive that the Tabacon but they were much more that US prices.

I really dug this little rolling shopping basket.  I wish our Publix had these.

And these I just found gross sounding.  Thought I’d share.

Wish me luck in the battle to make us all healthy!

    HEY! I can read and understand the items on the shelves! 😉

    Sorry you feel like crud. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Close your eyes and dream about Mr. Musculo!! Why would they use “Mr.” instead of “Senor?” This will bug me all night now!

      I thought you’d like that. I guess the SC Johnson people like alliteration better than accuracy…
