One of my favorite things to do in a foreign country to is wander through a grocery store to see what new products I can find as well as see which U.S. products or brands are available. In Lima, Peru, over Christmas break, I was surprised to see Jules Destrooper butter crisp cookies; we featured them in our March 2010 issue as a food to try. I thought it was funny that I could find them in Lima, but many times, they aren't even stocked at my local store. I found them in Vivanda, a local chain of supermarkets that we dubbed the Whole Foods of Lima. I love to serve these crisps alongside sorbet, or try them as ice cream sandwiches. Their 14.79 soles price tag means they cost about $5—about a dollar more than what you'll find them for in the U.S.
