Although we can find some of the same foods here that we're used to in the USA, there are many that are very different. You can certainly find Coke, but Peruvians also enjoy their own unique brand of soda, IncaKola, which all of the kids LOVE, but I think tastes like bubble gum toothpaste ;-). Peruvians also enjoy a kind of sauce that is made from a rocoto pepper, which is super spicy! It is used on just about everything, psrticularly starchy foods, which they eat a lot of - especially rice and potatoes. Scott uses it a lot, and the older boys have been working on their tolerance level and are getting to like it too. It's always a competition!
