One of my favorite lunch spots, La Moon Restaurant on 8th Street, opened a small store of Colombian goodies adjacent to the restaurant last week. It’s not too hard to find Colombian foods in Miami; many Publixes actually carry a good selection of it, but somehow it’s always exciting to find more. Aside from the coffee and frozen arepas, La Moon carries lots of candy and snacks that you don’t find at Publix. I was happy to find a few childhood favorites: Sparkies, – the Colombian version of Skittles – Mani Moto, Gudis, chicken and lemon-flavored potato chips (Papas Margarita), ChocoRamo (a type of chocolate-covered pound cake) and others. The store will also be selling wraps and salads to go.
