Various groceries found since moving to Spain that suddenly stop being available in all the local stores

Matutano/Frito Lay (Cheetos) Bits


Imagine my surprise when they launched this product, small bags of mini chips/munchies. Matutano are the subsidiaries of Frito-Lay part of Pepsico etc who make Doritos and Cheetos etc. They launched the "BITS" line with several different flavours, most of which were ok. I prefered two of the five I encountered at the beginning. the barbecue "twisties" and the "cheetos crunchits" I think they called it. While there are several types of Cheetos on the market here, I didn't care much for the flavour of any of them. Add that I don't really want to eat a large bag of them either...

Mountain Dew!


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.
