Guacamole dip and taco sauce at Carrefour

Lo and behold, I saw guacamole dip at Carrefour last night for the first time. I haven't tried it yet, but I bought a jar for around NT$100. It looks like there's some salsa in the dip, too.

And I also saw taco sauce! Happy day!

I was shopping at the DaZhi Carrefour, and they have several new "Mexican" products on their shelves. I also saw some tortellini for the first time.

Strawberried Peanut Butter M&Ms at Family Mart

The other day I was at a Family Mart and saw these new M&Ms. Since I'm a big fan of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, I had to try them. They do taste a bit like a PB&J. I'm not sure if other convenience stores are selling them or not.

Also, Carrefour is having big sales on "American products" this month. I got a bunch of cake mixes at cheap prices. Most were NT$72 or less. I got one box of Duncan Hines chocolate cake mix for NT$20 because it's "expiring in a month." I can't pass up a cake mix for NT$20!

Coconut M&Ms and Snickers Nougabot Bar at 7-11

I've been pleasantly surprised at the variety of M&Ms that have made their way to 7-11 stores here. Now, for all of you coconut fans, you can try the new limited edition flavor.

And if you dare, pick up the new Snickers bar, insipired by the Transformers movie. It has yellow nougat inside. I'm not sure yet if the nougat tastes differently than the normal nougat, or if it was just created by yellow food coloring. I'll have to give it a try and find out.
