Mary Ann Made a Mistake

Last night we were watching television. A commercial came on for Haagen Daaz ice cream. I lamented “I have never seen Haagen Daaz in any of the stores I have been in.”

She replied, “You have not been to Spinneys.”


“Spinneys is the ‘Gringo’ supermarket. It is a British chain, they import stuff from everywhere. But don’t be disappointed if they do not have Haagen Daaz.”

Needless to say, I set off to find a Spinneys.

I have been quite happy with the UAE chains here, and finding different foods has been a big part of the adventure.

But Spinneys, OMG! They had everything from Peach Chutney to Grits and even fresh out of the oven BAGELS!

But the biggest thing I did not believe until I ate the entire quart I bought…are you ready for this…no Haagen Daaz, better…

Ben & Jerry’s CHERRY GARCIA!

Think I was happy here before? I am now in a state of euphoria.

    Used to be a Häagen-Dazs place 5-6 years ago… guess it went out of business..

    You can get Häagen-Dazs in ADNOC stations,
    But they always run out of the Strawberry Cheesecake, i guess its the best flavour by far 😉
