A twenty-four pack of tortillas were also secured, once their freeze-ability had been confirmed. Vaccum-sealed cactus flesh was another item of interest, however the steep price tag of eight dollars prompted reconsideration, especially when fresh berries were retailing at $5 for 2 boxes the next stall over.
Pastel de Nata, more commonly referred to as Portuguese egg tarts, were a popular pick amongst patrons. Witnessed throughout our wait time in line were trays of tarts being delivered and re-stocked. We opted for four of them, sold at $1.80 apiece, along with a $2.50 slice of flan and oval-shaped (Brazilian?) pastry known as Tamboré, which admittedly does resemble a drum.
I opted for a total of thirty-six of the miniature specimens, as cookies were sold at a rate of $8 per dozen. A total of thirty-four varieties were present, or so we were told; the obvious objective was try them all.
Google results ceased to yield details on the conventional composition of the pastry; all I can conclude is contentment in its delicate, decadent profile.
Prior to this experience, I had never truly comprehended the concept of mint chocolate reeking of "toothpaste". However, upon sampling the layered mint green and chocolate square, I can finally confirm the plausible perception.
