Has anyone seen or knows if a packaged hard candy called Coffee Break (Carmelo Cafe) made by de la Rosa is available in any stores in Zihua?

I've had a request to pick some up for a friend during our pending visit to Zihua in a few weeks and haven't seen them during our previous visits.

Gracias.

Roberto!

It's been a few years, but there was a candy store across the street from the Mercado, and most of what was sold were single-wrapped hard candies packaged in bags. I was looking for something once, and they didn't have what I was looking for, but called someone and they brought it right to the store.

I wish I could be more help, but I got a ride from a friend and didn't pay much attention to where I was. It's in a block of small storefronts across a narrow street from the Mercado, but that's the closest I can get you.

There is also one in the Mercado, across from the one you just mentioned. They have different stock. There are also several more in the general vicinity.

Also check Bodega Aurerra and Mega Soriana. They have a decent selection too.

Gracias for your suggestions.
I checked on Amazon.com and.ca but they weren’t advertised.
Will also check a small tienda close to home and if not successful we’ll see what we can locate in Zihuatanejo.

Gracias for the link.
Looks like the product is similar, however, my amigo wanted the brand "Coffee Break" by de la Rosa.
I tried a couple of small Mexican tiendas locally and wasn't able to find anything even close.
Will see what I can find in Zihua and am forwarding your link in case they want to give those a try.
Roberto!
