Where to get a mangonada in MSP?

Any suggestions of good Mexican grocery stores you recommend? I looked in the more authentic section of Cub, but the sauce I thought might be chamoy didn't contain apricots as one of the ingredients, so I think it was just a salsa/pepper sauce.

I did go the Izzy's tasting contest this year...I was also thinking mango django would be a good substitute! Next idea: find chamoy at a Mexican foods grocery store.

Ha ha, yes - it is a not a 'mango-nada" mango-nothingness. It is like a mango ice cream/sorbet, and then it is topped with chamoy (spicy sour sauce with apricot, chilli, sugar, water, vinegar, and salt), and some ground chili pepper and a squeeze of lime. So it combines a lot of flavors - spicy, hot, sweet and a little sour. I had it in my hometown (whiting, indiana) at a new ice cream place that features mexican treats, paletas, elotes etc. It was so good that I had it three times in as many days. I could probably fudge it with some mango ice cream.

Man Vintner - Cabernet Sauvignon

Does anyone know where in town to purchase this wine other than Solo Vino? (Looking for a west-side location).
