Brazilians like their breads freshly baked,so,twice a day,early morning and at the evenings,they will make a track to the closest "padaria" ,and bring home all sorts of hot rolls and baguettes.
Brazilians have a lot of packaged cookies,the most popular and a must try is the famous "biscoitos(cookies)Maria",also the coconuts ones called "Calipso".
My favorite wafers are the chocolate flavor "Sao Luis".
Also freshly baked arrowroot,coconut and cornstach cookies(biscoito de polvilho)are marvelous!
Bakeries also sell sodas,cheeses and cold cuts and a variety of other foods.
Many padarias will also sell grilled chickens,so if you're a busy person,you can pick up your dinner together with fresh bread!
Don't forget Brazilians use the metric sistem,so 100grams of ham will be around a quarter of a pound.
