Dulce de Leche in MSP?

I have a daughter that spent six months in Argentina recently and really liked Dulce de Leche. I would like to get her some for Christmas, but I have not been able to find it here. Does anyone know where I might purchase some in the Twin Cities?

  1. I've purchased a jar at Williams-Sonoma, it was a bit pricey. I'm not sure if Trader Joe's or World Market might have it?

    1. I would try one of the many Latin American markets in Minneapolis. MGM, Mercado Central, et al.

      1. I bought a jar a few months ago at the linden hills Co-Op on 43rd. Don't remember the price though.

        1. It used to be easy to find it at Morgan's Lebanese & Mexican Deli in St Paul, but i believe they have closed.
          I've see it once at Bill Imported foods on Lake & Bryant in Mpls, you'd have to call and confirm.
          Other options: the Brazilian store in Eden Praire usually has dulce de leche (or "doce de leite", the brazilian name for it (same thing)(their info is on-line - http://www.brazilianconnectioncompany...)
          William Sonoma, as mentioned above, also has it.
          good luck!
