...we all scream for ice cream...

And Costco has some yummy ice cream right now! Try the Chocotal Dominican flavors...

Or you can opt for the slightly healthier Sharon's Sorbet (which comes in Passion fruit and berry flavors).
Get 'em before they're gone for good.

Rocky Road ice cream is here!

It's labeled "Rocking Black Forest," but it's really Rocky Road. This ice cream comes with marshmallow bits and almonds and chocolate pieces, and it's pretty tasty! The Duroyal Super ice cream varieties are far better than the regular Duroyal flavors. I found this at Carrefour, and it's the first time I've seen this flavor.

And these are a few of my favorite things...

I don't have a lot of new products to share with you, but I am going to start posting some of my favorite imported goods and where you can find them at the best price. (to my knowledge). Enjoy!
I highly recommend Veggie Wash, which is around NT$250 at Jason's Marketplace. I use this daily!
O Organics Roasted Garlic Pasta sauce is one of the best I've tried. You can find it at Carrefour for around NT$150/ jar.
If you want some REAL high-fiber, whole-wheat bread, you need to go to the Adventist Hospital on BaDe Road, not to far from the Taipei Sports Arena. They have a little bakery on the first floor where you can buy the bread. It's very tasty and makes great sandwiches.
The cheapest refried beans I've found are at Florida Bakery for NT$63/ can. And you can buy great homemade salsa, tortilla chips and pita chips at this bakery, too. Florida Bakery is located on Jhongshan N. Road, near the Filipino grocery stores.
Cheap garbanzo beans at the EEC Filipino Store on Jhongshan N. Road! Only NT$50/ can.
