Day 22: Costa Rican Foods We Will Miss

Click HERE to check out the days you’ve missed!

Today is 12/12/12!! Crazy! Just had to make a note. I’m just glad we will be home on the 18th, before the world ends on 12/21/12. That is, according to the Mayans… πŸ™‚

Like I have mentioned before, Peter and I love food. Actually, we love good tasting foods and trying new foods! Once, we even tried cow tongue here! And it was actually good!!

Some of the natural foods we will miss include pineapple (it’s SOOO sweet and delicious here!), mamon fruit, pejivalle, fresh honey and Chicken.

Pejivalle. Food of the ancient people, boiled in salt water, dipped in mayo. Yum!

Some of the cooked foods we love here include gallo pinto, plantain maduro, plantain chips, chicharrones, $5 sea bass platters and margaritas at our pool restaurant (they are delicious!!).

Products we have grown to love here and we will most likely go to extreme lengths to seek out in the states include Tona (a Nicaraguan beer that’s light and crisp and delicious), Coca-Cola (it tastes way different and WAY better here. Peter and I rarely drink soda back home, but we did get down on some coke here. Also, the Coke Light is way better than Diet Coke, too), Lizano Salsa, and this Jalepeno sauce that we put on our eggs at breakfast!

Here they are! If you've seen any of these in the U.S. (minus the Coke) tell me where!

We are going to have to hit up the Fiesta grocery store in Texas while we’re visiting over the holidays…
