In our regular back & forth trips from USA to Argentina, we have always brought peanut butter, hard to find except for hit & miss in barrio chino. In 2005, we brought only a jar for ourselves, but each year we seemed to bring a little more for friends. Last time, we brought 9 jars. Then we started seeing it in our neighborhood chinos, and thought we might not need to keep packing it in.
In the months we’ve been unable to return to Argentina, I’ve wondered if peanut butter and other imported foods have, once again, become harder to find?
