Hi again,

What food/beverage/snacks/cookie/candy/bakery/fruits/vegetable goods are the most scarce or expensive in the VI? As some context, that is compared to in the mainland U.S, the kinds of items which could be used to fill in the blanks below.

You just can't get good ________________ here.
On the mainland I'd pay $ for _________________, but in the VI it is at least 3x that.

I just realized the above two fill-in-the-blanks are fair game for adult mad libs, but let's just stick to the aforementioned goods, please! 😮

Thanks,
Ted

Turtles in Frederiksted makes great bread. Also Blue Water Terrace.

I don't like chains like dunkin donuts or Panera - they use packaged mixes and often contain corn syrup, bleah. 🙂
