Cookie Monster

03Mar12

One very important aspect of our missionary work has been learning about Argentine and Paraguayan culture. So when we read that Argentina is the Western Hemisphere’s foremost consumer of galletitas (crackers and cookies), well, let’s just say that we’ve done our best to fit in.

Galletitas

The extensive cracker aisle at our local supermarket. Each packet of approximately 75 crackers costs about $1.33.

According to the newspaper La Nación, the average Argentine ate 22 pounds of galletitas in 2011, two pounds more than the average U.S. snacker.
