Markelo's Guatemalan Tamales - FYI

AndreaOK | Mar 6, 200202:30 PM

Somebody asked about these a while ago, and then surprisingly it came up in conversation here at work. Our mailroom manager is Guatemalan and says that he loves Markelo's for their Guatemalan sweet bread (he has relatives all over the country who request shipments of it on a regular basis), but that the tamales are not made there. He says they are made by a lady in the neighborhood who is not too particular about the freshness and quality of her ingredients - he has tried them and he never will again.
