Maybe it also depends on how big of a chain the store is. When I need "exotic" produce, I know to head to the one-store+one-store chain (they have a regular grocery store and another, different-named store that's smaller in size but wider in choices one town over) in the next town over. Their produce department doesn't have as much real estate as the larger stores around here, but I can find many different selections than anywhere else. Not just Hispanic (there are a lot who reside in that same town), but 6-8 different eggplants, at least half a dozen hot peppers, Hispanic foods I wouldn't even know what to do with - and I recognize more of them than not.

The regular grocery stores sell, well, regular produce.

Hmm. This post revival got me thinking, so I took a quick look around Amazon. They seem to have a nice variety of dolmates.

I love Dolmas. If I was on a desert island, they would be my one food wish. If I was on a dessert island, I would also want them.

Me too! If I was on a desert island, I'd want something savory, and tangy like dolmas.
If I was on a dessert island with cakes and cookies, chocolates, and sweets, I'd like something savory and tangy like dolmas.
I would, really I would.
