nikad said:I confirm: Jumbo carries maple syrup ( look for it where they have all the american goodies or where they display marmalades, honey, cake icing )
...and from Harleygirlsteveinbsas said:100% Maple syrup is fairly common in the grocery stores. I've seen it in the Discos and Jumbo Palermo (who also owns Disco). Look in the imported food section. I have yet to see pancake mix anywhere.
....cranberry juiceHarleygirl said:I liked Jumbo in Palermo for awhile but I am so tired of the same ol,, same ol'd. Recently I went to the Disco Supermarket just down the street from Starbucks on Elcano. It's a much smaller store but I really liked their selection of food. I was even able to finally find maple syrup.

EvergreenGal said:Cranberries are grown in bogs of water....it would be very difficult to do that in BA...in the cooler regions of Argentina I would think you could ...
Cranberry Juice...saw it a Jumbo's, in Unicenter, they have it in the produce section near the wall with the unpackaged produce...and also when you first hit the "coffins"....meat coolers, where the pork is..right at the front on a corner end cap display...hope that makes sense
***they have the large liters not small bottles...

FYI- I just came from Jumbo in Palermo...they have no PB but expect a shipment in month or so of Skippy. Lots of Cranberry juice, decent mustard and pickles among other things...
Very true, when you find it you had to be quick and beat the competition so do not buy one, buy the lotnikad said:Things come and go, a couple of months ago it was easy to get maple syrup and cranberry juice at Jumbo, last week went to the Almagro store and couldn´t find any...I guess you gotta keep checking as they might be importing small quantities.
The one in Paseo Alcorta? We used to always shop there for a long time, but switched to Jumbo in Palermo because more often than not they did not have what we wanted (even basics like fresh produce, etc.). That Carrefour is just like all the other supermarkets; they will have a good selection of unique imports one day/week and the next time you wont find any. It pretty much the same everywhere, including Jumbo and Disco.diego7david said:the big carrrefour on i cant remember what big ave but in palermo near the airport in a shopping center seems to have everything anyone could want
