So they had this little display set up at Sultan Center (Salmiya). People kept walking into my shot, realizing I was trying to take a pic and stopping halfway through with the deer-in-headlights look on their face. It wasn’t the prettiest display in the world, but it was enough to set off my cousin’s wife who had gone from being a happy-go-lucky Lebanese cutie pie who used to dye her hair regularly and wear jeans and fitted tops, and smoke sheesha in public, to now covering her hair (wearing a hijab) and wearing super loose clothing and being uptight and judgmental about literally everything (after she’d gotten married).
I tried explaining the concept of “live and let live”, but she jumped down my throat and said I was turning my back on my religion so I lost interest in the conversation and instead pointed out other stuff at Sultan Center that she’d find more interesting (to distract her so she’d back off). I really like her, but dang, this us vs them mentality bugs me so much! Moving on to something much lighter…
Heryshey’s Christmas Milk Chocolate Giant Kiss 12oz.
Never really like Hershey’s Kisses. If you don’t count the ones baked into cookies and cakes and whatnot, I wanna’ say the last honest-to-goodness Hershey Kiss I ever had, was either in 2nd or 3rd grade. I just don’t like Chocolate.
Lindt Chocolate Santa 125g
Man, those enormous Chocolate Santas make me feel so nostalgic! They remind me of Christmases abroad as a kid with the family. I think it’s more the artwork on the foil though.
Alicafe French Roast Salted Caramel
Alicafe French Roast Skinny Latte
Hi, my name is LuLu and apparently I’m addicted to Instant Coffee.
More Instant Coffee!
Jacobs Cappuccino Milka Specials
Wait, what? I thought Milka only made Chocolate Bars.
Torabika Cappuccino Instant Coffee
Rich Foam Coffee with extra Choco Granule! This is the stuff that my uncle’s wife served me when I was visiting with her! Guys, it smelled ah-mah-zing! It tasted even better too! Basically, you got the large pouch of Instant Coffee and the tiny pouch attached to the back of the larger pouch that had chocolate powder that was meant to be mixed in and together, the whole thing was so yummy!
Ramzy Licorice Drink
Coco Mojo Pure Coconut Water
I can always find this stuff at the Salmiya branch of Sultan Center! That being said, I’m kinda’ over it lol
Oh man! This stuff is my be-all-end-all Hair Conditioner, to the extent that I wrote up an entire post dedicated to its awesomeness (here)! In that post, which was years ago, I stated that they’d revamped the line. I continued to purchase Cream Silk Conditioners (but stopped blogging about it because I didn’t want to bore you by showing the same product over and over again), but they were always in the old packaging.
This is the first time I’ve spotted the newer packaging being sold in Kuwait! … and it only took about 4-5 years lol It’s not exactly mind-blowing news, but I’m pretty excited about the newer packaging!
Sara Lee Cakes
Old-school, baby! These make yummy treats on their own with a glass of cold milk or chopped up into tiny bite-sized chunks and tossed into bowl with some other stuff (for example, ice-cream) to create a more intricate dessert!
I can’t ever look at Eggos again without thinking of Eleven lol Regardless, I’m more intrigued by Aunt Jemima Lil’ Griddles Mini Pancakes (red packaging, click on pic to enlarge)!
Why am I, all of a sudden, starting to see Milka everywhere now? Also, you can see a crumpled up tissue in my hand because Sultan Center is always uncomfortably cold, regardless of the weather outside!
KitKat Mocha Mini Moments
KitKat Desserts Mini Moments
Nope! I tried these before (here) and they were pretty bad!
KitKat Chunky (Halloween Edition)
This was in December so I guess these didn’t sell well or they brought too many over.
Cadbury Screme Eggs (Halloween Edition)
These made me lol
M&M’s Glow-in-the-Dark Trick-or-Treat Packs (Halloween Edition)
Ooooh, Glow in the Dark!
Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies
Hello, my old friend! I’m over you (at the moment), but we did have some good times together, didn’t we?
I was looking for those awesome Hershey’s Dipped Pretzels that I randomly found at Souq Sharq last time (spotted here), but all I could find was this display of basic pretzels (tsk, so basic).
Mickey Snax Funny Faces
This reminded me of my conversation with Sonia (Hey, girl!) so I had to take a pic.
Mickey Snax Mickey Mix
Same. I’m pretty sure these were the ones she was referencing earlier.
Hershey’s Popped Snack Mix
I spotted this lil sucker peeking out from behind some random Chocolate Bars and snatched it up immediately.
Hershey’s Dipped Pretzels
Further digging uncovered something even more precious, Hershey’s Dipped Pretzels! I had to go on a mini scavenger hunt to find this stuff, but… worth it!
I knew these would go fast (meaning I’d inhale them as soon as I got home) so I stocked up… and begrudgingly shared a pack with my brother and a pack with my favorite cousin and a pack with the kids. Despite all said sharing, I managed to put on some weight (which I completely credit to this stuff) lol I’m now no longer dangerously skinny (I don’t look like a lollipop) but still considered somewhat slender (bumped up from an X-Small to a Small). Like I said, my weight yo-yo’s and if I keep this up, I’ll be back to X-Large in no time, but whatever.
