Seeking Dulce de Leche in NH

Does anyone know a good Latin market that sells dulce de leche in New Hampshire? (preferably Argentinian)

    1. Sorry, If you can not find it it is easy to make. There are also versions that start with condensed milk or Goat milk.

        Thanks for the reply. I've made it before with condensed milk, but it's not for personal use. If you knew the amount of this stuff I go through in a week, you'd understand I'd never have the time to prep it out.

      2. I just found a can of this in my cupboard after reading your post, not even sure why I have it.

        It is from Nestle, and I'm sure I must have bought it at either Shaw's or Market Basket in Nashua or Merrimack.

        I have no idea if it is even close to what it should be as I don't recall ever having it anywhere, hence not sure why I have it, although I do like caramel.

        I'd gladly open it and see what is in the can. It does say it is a product of Mexico.

        I just tried to find more info on the Nestle website, but I couldn't, as I probably din't put in the correct search info.

        Next time I'm at either I'll see if I find it again, and let you know. I was at MB today, but wasn't thinking to check it out, sorry. Hope this helps somewhat.

        1. Hi Bewley - Butter's in Concord has La Salamandra brand dulce - you might drive yourself into the poorhouse though!

            Thank you hummingbird. Yes, I see Nestle now makes a squeeze bottle Dulce that may be easier to locate.

            And thank you wongadon, but you're right, La Salamandra is too boutiquey and high priced (tastes pretty good though).

          2. I just returned from NH. It looked like there are a lot of Latino markets in Manchvegas and Nashua. I don't know if they carry what your looking for but I would think that they carry it.
            You could also search for a Latino food distributor and see if they could hook you up with a quantity.

              Yes, probably the best idea yet. Thanks!
