Last month I wrote about the most addicting drug you’ll find in Costa Rica. That article crashed the site because obviously Trits are THE most addicting thing here and everybody knows it.

But, there is another drug that’s even more widely available than Trits. This drug requires no refrigeration, it can be eaten alone or put on just about anything. You probably know the drug I’m talking about by now.

Salsa Lizano

This sauce was developed back in 1920 by the Lizano Company. The ingredients include water, sugar, salt, onions, carrots, cauliflower, cucumbers, spices, pepper, mustard, tumeric and crack-cocaine. Just kidding on the last one 🙂

You can find it at every restaurant, house, bar, and home in Costa Rica. Perfect for those of us with an insatiable appetite for this liquid drug.

Salsa Lizano can now be purchased in the United States which helps many a Gringo with their craving. It’s rumored that they import it by the container load!
