    Yeah. Looks like I will need to buy a large freezer and ref and convert my second living room into storage. I didn't anticipate that this many grocery items would be requested.

    what's a duma based online store?
    are you thinking of stocking a few good sellers in a storefront and also taking orders for onesy-twosy items and you order them online and consolidate the items in the states, then bb box them to duma?

    good luck in whatever you attempt, wrye, if this forum is any indication, you're the guy that can do it!

    here's a few items i could do with:
    - Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Corn Grits, Polenta, 24 Ounce Packages (Pack of 4) large flake
    - sun dried olives

    - tubeless tire repair kit
    - 1/4-Inch by 18-Inch Bellhanger Drill Bit
    - Victoria Corn Grinder by Corona


    to the tortilla chip requesters:
    have you tried the Casa de Tortilla Nacho Chips at hyper and lee plaza. the unsalted chips satisfy my chip addiction and they've been ''in stock'' for at least 6 months. you can test for crispness by gently squeezing the bag to see if it collapses.

    That's the ones jack, water biscuits! We can get Danish blue but it just don't hit the mark like Stilton does. If I eat it here the Mrs locks herself into the bedroom hehe!

    Edited to say there is a couple of whole sellers in manilla who sell a lot that has been mentioned on this thread, obviously not as cheap as back home but far better prices than here. The last time I used was a few years ago now and think a couple of us spent around p20,000 and picked up at airport in styro foam box.

    Ah now we're Cooking but I reckon 1/2 s on that might be in order if yours don't like real cheese that is. Water Biscuits? or Jacobs Crackers they used to do several types in tins!
