I bought a few imported food stuffs and just thought I would post the prices and see how they compare to the prices in USA.
3pound can of Butter Flavored Crisco $RD 340 (exchange rate $39 pesos to $1us dollar) $US 8.72
12oz. non-name brand Peanut Butter $RD 150 (exchange rate $39 pesos to $1us dollar) $US 3.85
16oz. Tahini $RD 260 (exchange rate $39 pesos to $1us dollar) $US 6.67
How do these prices compare to those in United States?

I don’t know about the crisco, but 12 oz of jif usually costs me about 2.50. I can get tahini for around 4.00. I really enjoy your blog. You prepared me well for my first trip to the DR.
Glad I could help
