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.
