If you've been here awhile (or happen to live in Tianmu), you've probably been to G&G, which is located in Tianmu, back behind Swenson's. It's a bit out-of-the-way, which is probably why I didn't discover this place until last year. Although G&G isn't a place to find cheap stuff, it does carry a good selection of imported products, and I think it has a wider selection of Jello, pudding, and cake mixes than Wellman's. And sometimes you just need to splurge and buy those things you are really craving...like Reeses Peanut Butter Cups! :)
G&G usually carries a variety of cakes and frostings.
One nice thing about G&G is that it has a deli inside the store where you can buy lunchmeat and cheese and freshly made sandwiches, and you can sit and read the newspaper while you eat lunch. Sandwiches run from NT$135-155, and you can choose from a variety of homemade breads. Bagels, soups, salads, and homemade yogurt are also on the menu.
And, of course, they have a good selection of cereal...but be prepared to pay the price! It's cheaper to buy cereal in bulk at Costco. If you really need Reeses Puffs, then this is where you'll have to go.
Nutri Grain Bars and Ritz Chips. Both are too expensive for my budget. You can make homemade Nutri Grain Bars...sort-of. And they taste much better---I promise!
1 package yellow cake mix
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup melted butter
12 ounces jam or other filling
1 T. water
Mix cake mix, oats and butter. Press half of the mix into a 9x13 greased pan. Mix jam and water and spread over the mix. Add the remaining mix on top and bake for 20 minutes at 375. Before cutting, cool completely.
Variations: Use a strawberry cake mix with strawberry jam as the filling, or use a chocolate cake mix with peanut butter and marshmallow cream as the filling.
