Jentiki, you're not the only one to feel that way. I hesitated to mention the dreaded WM word, however there are a number of things which they are very well stocked up on. Fruit pulps is often one of those things.

We have a supermarket here in Port St. Lucie, Fl that caters to the hispanic and caribbean ethnic groups, Bravo Supermarkets. They have the passion fruit pulp (a number of brands) and I usually pick some up here. Today I was in the soda isle and what did I see on the top shelf? La Cena brand syrups. Found this one and picked it up:



Haven't had a chance to try it yet, I usually make hurricanes and pieces 'o eight with it.

La Cena has a slew of different syrups (
http://lacenafoods.com/Products63.html ) and Bravo carries most, if not all of them. I'm kinda wondering how the coconut syrup stands up to Coco Lopez (probably not well) or TV's KoKo Creme (never found it here, so wouldn't know if I tried). The sugarcane syrup looks interesting but is black as hell....probably has some mollasess taste to it.

forgot to list the ingredients:

Filtered Water
Sugar (Yay! No corn syrups!)
Passion Fruit pulp
citric acid (for tartness)
Xhanthan gum
1/10 of 1 percent sodium benzoate (preservative)

JenTiki, I feel the same way about Walmart. Maybe I need a couple of strong drinks at home - then go to Walmart and look for passion fruit pulp? (with a designated driver of course....)

Yes! The La Cena tastes exactly like the passion fruit syrup I make from the pulp. It's only about a buck or so more than the pulp...saves me the trouble of making my own. I'll be buying more.
