I saw where you listed Mike & Ike's as something you can't get there, and I was expressing my alarm and my sympathy for that fact ("No Mike & Ike's? Say it isn't so," that kinda thing).

This post just triggered a craving.
Oh! Hahahaha! Now I get it.

Yeah, no Mike & Ike's.

I did find some candy in the grocery store aisle yesterday that tastes just like Sprees. Only the yellow is pineapple.

If you have any extra room, there is always supplies needed for Playa Animal Rescue or Cocos. Cocos is need of clippers and some cat traps, and we are always in the need for vet supplies, medicated shampoo, crates, money etc.. hehe

Not sure if the gummy reference implied that you can't get them in MX. If so, gummy bears are available as Panditas in most OXXO's. My daughter thinks they taste better than in the US, but don't most thing?

Dont have a lot of room so no chance of a cattrap so we got Cocos the information of a chinese vendor and a donation for about 100 cat collars.

Will def bring in some medicated shampoo...please provide brand or type of shampoo needed.

shivors,

I have a small vest for my dog and an ID tag that I need to get my hands on down here. Very light and wouldn't take up much more space than a t-shirt. Can I have these materials expedited to you in the U.S. and get them from you when you get here? The materials are urgently important to me and I would be willing to compensate with a very healthy supply of cervezas.

If you can help, shoot me a PM with an address I could direct the materials to be shipped to, the date that you're arriving, how/where we might best meet-up when you get here, and any questions you might have.

Would hugely appreciate the favor.

Regards,

Cory

Not to hijack, but David and I are arriving the same day. We're bringing some supplies to CoCos and an ATM card for a lady that lives there and we can make room for the vest and tags if you need us to.

Looks like the candy is covered! Ha ha!

Hey Shivors, do you want to meet somewhere to get a taxi to CoCos on the 31st?
