Where to buy Cajeta in Broward county or North Dade?

I live in SW Broward and I'm looking for Cajeta, Coronado is one brand, but I'm not picky. I'm looking for something close to home, not online for $13!! This is a carmel topping/sauce type item.

I think I may be seen it at the market next door to Dona Raquel in Pompano, but it's a little far to drive.
I also checked a few mercados near Johnson and 441 that sell Mexican items, but did not find it.

Anyone?

    Did you try Bravo Supermarket? Don't know if they do but they might. There is one on Johnson just East of 95 near Memorial Hosp

      You can always go to La Estancia Argentina in Aventura, just a hop across the county line from Broward. Any Argentine market would carry it for sure. And Latin American markets *should* also carry it, whether it be Sedano's, Bravo, or any other.

      Cajeta (Central American term) is the same thing as dulce de leche (southern South American term) and arequipe (northern South American term). Just different names in different countries for the same product. Some bottles are labeled with all three terms to help others with familiarity.

        I tried Foodtown, on Stirling west of 441, it's mostly latin and carribbean, but not there. Also tried Sedanos on Pines and palm, not there either.

        I have a Bravo on Flamingo and Pembroke Road, i think, will try that. Hubby works in Aventura, will try the Argentine market also. Thanks for the alternate names of the product, did not know that!

          Cajeta is actually quite easy to make at home. Take 1 can of condensed milk, remove label, put the can in a pot and cover with water. Simmer for 2 1/2 hrs. Remove from water and let cool. That's it! Way better than anything you will get in a jar and cheap. Hope you give it a try!

            update, found the Coronado at Walmart in Cooper City, of all places. Near the peanut butter on the shelf. They also had the Vina type flavor cajeta also.

              Sorry I noticed this just now, but I bought some (Coronado in a plastic bottle, no less) in the Mexican market just next to Taqueria Dona Raquela on Dixie Highway in Pompano....

              I usually use dulce de leche but had a hard time finding this anywhere in the Boynton/Delray area. In NYC I buy this at Whole Foods but they did not seem to stock in at WF in Boca or Wellington.
