Man it's hot....in Chinandega. Ahhh...a frozen Eskimo Leche con Avena would be nice....


On a really hot day in Chinandega, Nicaragua, I wanted something to curb the heat. What does leche con avena taste like? Well, it's a combination of milk and oatmeal in a frozen ice cream like bar. To me it tastes like milk, vanilla and a slight hint of graham cracker taste. It doesn't matter. It's umm umm good. I have eaten quite a few of these guys since they were first marketed a few weeks ago.

I can't believe these little bars are so cheap!!! They cost a whopping $0.15. Hey, I have even invited strangers to eat this strange cool sensation here in Chinandega and all the rest of Nicaragua.

I imagine they are even eating them in cooler climates like San Marcos, Matagalpa and Jinotega.

I would love to take a cooler full of them and climb the San Cristobal or Cosiguina volcanos. Anyone care to join me?
