stopped by the downtown store on the way home today, and was pleased to see a big shipment of stuff from the States up front... PopTarts, Bisquick (been out of that for a while now), blueberry muffin mix, brownie mix, etc..

from experience I know that the other two stores, Mega Khinki and Toply Stan get the same stocks as the City store.

cake mix? bisquick mix? blah, take the extra 10 minutes and make it from scratch, it's a lot better for you in the long run, don't ya think?

betty crocker mixes are quite tasty...

but you do have a point there, hommade is always good...

being more familiar with THAT brand i use at home dr.oetker...
and add butter and into the chocolate cake throw in 100 gr real chocolate or in the lemon cake some finely chopped lemon and lemon peel ( tricky because many lemons are treated with herbicides).
for emergency, why not..

Can you be more specific?

I'd like some Hellmann's for the weekend. If you can point me to somewhere that has had it on the shelves in the very recent past (i.e. you saw it no longer ago than yesterday) I'd appreciate it.

..any, not only hellmanns.
very few are now imported, to much hassles and problems. companies have set up shop here. also mayo is made local.
hellmanns traditional and provencale, super quality. only adapted for local taste, mayo is a little bit more 'tart' or 'sour'.
can find it even at the smallest kiosk and supermarket.
was at Stockmann today,customs must have relased at leat 2-3 containers, lots of new stuff and items that were long since out of stock. unfortunately with (many) of the prices rather high..
but found one thing, and that is needed for making jam now: SUGAR is 19 rubles a kilo.no supermarket sells that cheap...
and BLACK liquorice(and red) thick like a finger, just YUMMMMMMMM

went back for some more pop-tarts... most of the original batch of stuff is gone, but now there's some new stuff like brownie mix and little marshmallows (got to have those for proper hot chocolate)
