    Good luck with the canned pumpkin - I have been here three years and have never found it anywhere (and I've looked everywhere). I actually bring it back with me from the USA. Sometimes you can find canned pumpkin pie mix in import shops, but it will be about three times what you would pay in the USA. You can get the graham cracker pie crusts ready made at Soriana (I shop at the one near Antara Polanco and just bought one on Sunday). By the way, if you are feeling REALLY lazy, they are serving pumpkin pie at Barracuda Diner in Condesa. I didn't try it but it looked good.

      I have found it from time to time. If you are anywhere near Polanco, you can buy canned pumpkin at the upsale grocery store there. I forgot the name of it, but it is on Oscar Wilde inbetween Emilio Castelar and Masarik. You can't miss it.

      Canned pumpkin has been difficult to locate in many USA cities this fall, so you might have difficulty, also, locating an imported (from the USA) product from the USA in Mexico as well.
