MII- Made In India

HTemp:  38c
Rain:       0.0"
`-$:         44.67

One of the best things about visiting or living in another country is seeing what's for sale.  Not the familiar tourist souvenirs such as rugs, brass junk or wood tchotchkes.  We're talking everyday products.

Here's glue.  The graphic is great and so appropriate for India: Two elephants trying to pull something apart.  Fantastic!

You also discover regulation differences (or terms: 'calorie' now labeled 'energy').

Here, all items must include the max retail price, and for perishable items, the production date. Getting ripped off and buying expired items has been a problem here, so now there are regulations.

MRP stands for Max Retail Price.

This package was produced on May 7, 2011 and sells for a max `32.  About 71¢.

Finally, there's nothing more satisfying than buying local junk food.  Naturally, some Western snacks are here (Hello Pringles), but what's the fun in scarfing the same, when you can nosh the new?:

Both get our seal of approval!
