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.

Well, that didn't last long. Looks like Bravo has stopped carrying the La Cena brand of syrups. They have some other brand.....Something Poly or Poly Something....but either Bravo doesn't carry the passion fruit or Poly-something doesn't make it. Back to mixing my own from pulp.


Cruised thru the beverage section of Bravo the other day.....they now have the Poly Passion fruit syrup. Picked up a bottle, but have not tried it yet. I still have a half bottle of homemade to finish before cracking this one.

I planted a PF vine last spring and got a couple of blooms and that was it. This year the vine has covered most of a 40 x 6 block wall and the vine has produced hundreds of flowers so I am anticipating lotsa fruit.
