S and R membership shopping (July 7th, 2013)


Recommended Posts

Wolfpack

I was already in the city because of attending the Fil-Am Friendship Celebration Saturday night...so I hit S & R membership shopping before heading back to San Fernando...

 

No California Milk today...

 

Picked up some common items for us...the Angus Beef burgers, Miller Beef Franks, Johnsonville Italian Sausage...USDA Ground Beef (to make Manwich)...and some breakfast sausage (the patty type)...

 

Picked up some common drinks for us...Welsh's Grape Soda, Cherry 7up and a case of Snapple Variety Pack of Tea...Budweiser Beer in bottles (born on day April 2013), Budweiser Beer in cans (born on date March 2013)...

 

grabbed a couple packages of their local pork and chicken...

 

even this simple stop cost me 8000 pesos...

 

tried their "Southern Fried Chicken"...I likely will not be doing that again...if I am going to buy takeout chicken...I prefer KFC...

 

grabbed 4 French Breads from French Baker...and went home...been an exhausting few days of partying in Cebu City : )

Coffee isn't expensive. Robusta beans are usually 45 pesos a kilo. I think that shipping coffee to the US, processing it, packaging it and then shipping it to Cebu might account for the price.   I'm

Glad they have the Johnsonville italian sausage again This is the longest they have been out of Calif milk. Have to go to the city tomorrow and planned to go to S&R, but no milk, so no reason to go. Hope I'll at least find some Cebu Fresh in SM.

The Miller franks are pretty good,(grilled)

just wish they were a little thicker, like Ball Park.

Thanks for the update

maybe you can be the GREEN GROCER for the forum... So how much is cream of wheat and is it the box or the separate 10 pack deal , also why is brewed coffee so expensive ?

totally agree with the "Ball Park" wish...I have requested someone bring me those from the states...it is one item no one has brought me yet...

 

The Miller's Franks are better than any other options I have found since Ayala stopped stocking Hebrew National...

Ball Park beef franks were my favorite back in the states. Even their hot dog buns were my favorite. The had a bag of frozen precooked burger patties that were pretty good (I just couldn't get used to a microwaved hamburger) I didn't try them in a pan or grilled, I'm sure they were lots better that way.

Ball Park would be a hit here with the expats I'm sure. Are you reading this Ball Park? :yell:

I'm stunned about how you guys crave for products from your home country.

 

You really are products of a consumerist nation aren't you? Don't you think that the advertising companies might have got inside your heads a little too much?

I'm stunned about how you guys crave for products from your home country - what a statement.  Seems that I remember in Canada and USA and a LOT of other countries there are tons of ASIAN grocery stores, Vietnamese, Thai, Filipino, etc.  SO if the nationals of those countries living in "Foreign" countries want their home food why should not US here?  By the way when in North America i do shop at a LOT of Asian stores as I like the food.

All the good things are available here. Gin and tonic, Fish and Chips, Tripe and onions, Lard...

I'm sorry I didn't mean that to sound like I was chastising anyone. I'm just truly surprised that to cook "American food", you need to actually import such specific brands from your own country.

 

English cooking is probably codified in Mrs Beeton's book of household management. Using this kind of resource there isn't really a need for "supermarket" food.

 

So called "Asian shops" just stock a different kind of ingredients that aren't readily available in many places.

 

It is just the "brand loyalty" that I find so startling. I'm guessing that what you are all looking for is "consistency", and demand that every time you try a certain dish, you want it to be identical to the last time.

 

I hear people complain that they can't find a certain kind of bacon or ham, but I see plenty of pork and salt in the market, and don't really understand what the problem is.
