When we first moved to Spain there wasn’t a whole lot of products that made me feel a bit closer to home despite being on the other side of the atlantic ocean. So once we finished cleaning and painting the new flat, we discovered that one of the local grocery stores had Mountain Dew. They never stocked it in larger quantities like other soft drinks, but they maintained a somewhat normal level of about 18 cans… which for an uncommon beverage in a smaller supermarket is quite remarkable. I regularly bought about 6 cans every few weeks or so. One day they didn’t have any. That situation never changed.
