Mother Earth (a.k.a Corinthians Store) Knows Best
I’ve always been a sucker for PX goods. Ever since I could go out on my own, I remember spending a few minutes at the imported goods section of Victoria’s Supermart, ogling the six packs of Hershey’s choco (Oh the simple desires of childhood. I’ve since moved on from Hershey’s cookies and mint to Cadbury Turkish delight to Lindt truffles – although, this one, you can get mostly from airport shops – an elusiveness which makes me want it more ^^,) and the jars of cherries (where my strange habit of snacking on ingredients, as my brother refers to it, was probably born). If I wasn’t at Victoria’s, I was at Benguet Supermart and yes, I’m a statue in front of the PX rack again.
As I grew older and cable made it possible to look further into the life that the US/other countries had (We just had a single channel on TV before – FEN-P…a great channel, the best channel, the only channel we ever needed. I miss you, Sesame Street at 3 p.m., Newton’s Apple, Cosby Show, Thundercats and a cartoon marathon on Saturdays), I remember feeling exactly the way Miranda did standing in front of a Krispy Kreme store dreaming of taking a bite or two out of the glazed donuts going their merry conveyor belt-like way (Sex and the City, season 5 episode 4). Only for me, I haven’t the foggiest notion what Krispy Kreme tasted like then. (Starbucks changed all that, didn’t it? =D After it opened its stores in the country, everyone else followed suit.)
My world continued to grow and I started spending hours at the CJH commissary. Let’s face it though, there’s more to imported goods besides chocolates…and giant bottles of shampoo. *heeharhar. There’s more of these (also, from other countries) to be found at a place called Corinthians Store (more popularly known as Mother Earth. Yup, they sell Mother Earth products here, and this store’s even more accessible).
Chocolates, trail mix, canned goods (Delimondo corned beef- the best corned beef ever!), bottles of sparkling beverages I’ve never heard about before, meats and seafood (like lamb chops. Whoa, lamb chops! Chilean seabass, veal bratwurst, etc.), bottled pasta sauces, pasta (capelinni, rigatoni, ravioli), baking ingredients (ready-made pie crusts, sprinkles, syrups, candy beads), cheeses (appenzeller, gruyere, raclette, provolone, blocks of emmental). Haven’t seen extraordinarily oozing cheese yet, but I’m sure we’re getting there), kitchen essentials (scary sharp kitchen knives, serving accessories, pro chef accoutrements), they’re all here!
I could live here. (God knows I’m trying my best to make that happen, stopping over every free moment I get. ^^,) Our resident chef, Karla, could live here. Beth already lives here (in a manner of speaking). =))
So if you’re looking for that special ingredient that will make what you’re cooking a masterpiece (Chef Vicky mentioned the caper berries used in our favorite course is available here – at times), if you want some wine bottle holders that will make your collection look as if they’re defying gravity, or if you want to try new things/new products just like I do…eating ingredients on their own, not necessary (without taking a trip out of the country or even the city), visit Mother Earth/Corinthians.

X Marks the Spot for Good Baguio Foods is a personal blog. Everything posted in this blog is PERSONAL OPINION DERIVED FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE and since TASTE can be pretty SUBJECTIVE, should NOT be taken as THE NORM or the LAW OF DINING around in the City of Pines.
Its (prosaic =b) contents are meant to help with the question “san tayo?”/where do we go? in relation to eating out in Baguio, to ENCOURAGE EXPLORING (eatsploring) and TRYING NEW THINGS offered in the City of Pines.
By all means, eat where you want to eat and eat what you want to eat. May you have a great experience with all the places you visit and may all the restaurants you go to deserve a ton of treasure chests! (“,)
(Also, if you have any second thoughts about a certain place you arrive at, please DON'T LET THIS BLOG BE THE REASON YOU ARE FORCED into ending up anywhere. If the restaurant doesn’t have what you want, please FEEL FREE TO WALK AWAY.)
