New goodies at the Shihjr Costco

Low-calorie Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches are available---for a pretty steep price! You can also find Breyers fruit bars.

V-8 Fusion Light---another low-calorie option.

Instant Organic Oatmeal. (does oatmeal really need to be organic?)

Kirkland macaroni and cheese. (15 boxes in one carton) I took this photo of another person's shopping cart.

And we were so excited to see Anderson honey wheat pretzels---straight from Lancaster County, PA. Trust me, these are good.

I'm not even a fan of pretzels, and I really like these.

An "American" sale at A-Mart (formerly known as Geant)

A-Mart is having a sale on so-called American foods until July 13. You can find spaghetti sauce, salsa, salad dressings, Spam, and other various items for sale. The salsa is a pretty good deal.

And Wishbone dressings are down to NT$139 each.
Usually the only reason I shop at A-Mart is to buy peanut butter. This is the kind of peanut butter I buy---I don't even know what it's called, since it's all in Chinese. But one of my Chinese friends had me try it a couple of years ago, and I've been buying it ever since. It's locally made, and it tastes more like a "natural" peanut butter---and it has a nice crunch to it.
You can find this peanut butter near the dairy section at the A-Mart near the Miramar. There's a display with all sorts of things like peanut butter, jam, honey, spaghetti sauce, etc. It's not far from the checkout lanes.

And just for fun...have you tried the "Ice Cream" Oreos yet? They're sorta blueberry-tasting. I don't really like Oreos plain, but I often use them in desserts. (I like to make Oreo pie when I bring back pudding mixes from the States)
