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)

interesting blog, and rather helpful - thanks. Where exactly is A-Mart located?

It'd be nice if you distinguished whether your "Chinese" friend was really a friend from China or from Taiwan. in which case "Taiwanese" might be more appropriate...?
