My friend B and I headed out to the mall the other day. I needed to return something and get some groceries for the week. I also offered her a coffee at Starbucks in exchange for a tutorial on updating curriculum guides. (Someone, a-hem, has sort of zoned out at staff meetings during those instructions, not realizing that, next year, she might need that information.) We also wandered into a store with unable-to-be-bought-here American products. I am firmly convinced that everything in this store is from the black market. I decided to find the most outlandishly priced item and take a photo for you. It had to be the buttermilk pancake mix.
Here's the price.
That's about US$50. I'll just stick to adding my own baking powder, salt, and buttermilk to my own flour, thank you very much.
