Oh, Good Lord, no! I'm the furthest thing from a connoisseur; talk to Rich One if you need a sophisticated palateThanks for the explanation - you sound like a real connoisseur. Have seen many posts about "American" bacon but never knew the difference.
I shopped at Trader Joe's for the past three decades - it is my idea of grocery heaven.
A giant Whole Foods opened in my town, not a mile from Trader Joe's, but I'm happy to report it hasn't made a dent in their faithful customer base.
As to DHL, service in Uruguay is dismal. Once they took a whole week to deliver my next-day letter to the US. When I complained there was no apology, no price adjustment, nothing. Let buyers beware...!
Customs regulations there are as bad or worse than in Argentina. A friend received a bread-making machine as a gift from a Swiss relative. Taxes due were 1.5 times the value of the machine, so he refused delivery.
I just remember when I was a boy, waking up at Grandma's house on winter mornings, and smelling that aroma of frying bacon all through the house, along with that unique smell of coffee in an old fashioned percolator, and oh, I have no words. Bacon is tied up in many of my earliest and happiest memories, back in the mid to late 1960's when America was something to be proud of, when we had no doubts and actually trusted our government.
But of course that world, that America, is gone with the wind, nevermore to return. Sic transit gloria mundi.
