1. Too bad they don't travel well
One of the things that threw me into culture shock here in central New Mexico was a small grocery's selection of Wonder Bread white and "wheat," and that was it, next to a selection of over 20 varieties of corn and flour tortillas.

There are several makers here who do great ones, but like old wine and young cheese, they do not travel well.

What I can't find in this town is a real bagel. The closest is Lender's frozen.
