Spotted at Sultan Center (Souq Sharq Mall + Promenade Mall)

I visited both the Souq Sharq branch and the Promenade branch of Sultan Center on separate days during the month of September, but decided to group them together for this post.

Basically, I keep running out of either the Chunky Salsa (Medium) or Tostitos Hint of Lime Tortilla Chips (which is all I’ve been craving recently). As long as it’s not Hot (which makes my nose run, eyes water, ears turn red, tongue swell up and lips feel like they’re on fire) nor Mild (which is tasteless), I’m not picky about which brand of Salsa I get. My only prerequisites are that it’s Chunky (with veggies) and Medium (has a kick to it), which is generally easy to find at any branch. Sadly, the Tostitos Hint of Lime Tortilla Chips are less easy to find (they appear in and out of stock at random), which is why I’m always on a scavenger hunt of sorts (because I never know if they’re in stock or not) at Sultan Center.

With that being said, I’m happy to report that I spotted those delicious Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies (reviewed here) in all the branches! I didn’t get any, because like I said, I’ve only been craving Tortilla Chips and Salsa recently. However, it’s nice to see the Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies available in large quantities. Plus, Chips Ahoy! even partnered up with Microsoft to come up with a little promo featuring one of the games (Sea Of Thieves) on Xbox One. I’ve never heard of that game before, but still, what a fun idea!

Sultan Center Haul #9

About 2 months ago (August 31) I had the irresistible urge to stock up on some Cookies and Chocolates and Brownies (as shown). It was weird, because as I’ve said multiple times before on this blog, I am not a chocolate-lover. In fact, generally, I believe Chocolate is absolutely vile (too rich, too heavy, too chocolate-y)! However, for whatever reason that day, I was quite clearly (as evident by this haul) craving the stuff. Less than a week later, shark week was upon us (I say us because when it’s “that time of the month”, I make sure that everyone else suffers along with me), which shed light on the driving force (hormones) behind this particular haul.

Carrefour Mini Snack Haul

I’d run out of Chips and Dip from my previous Sultan Center Haul (here), so I figured I’d pop into Carrefour to replenish my stock, since I was at the Avenues anyway. Also, it was where I usually park my car. It’s been a minute since I was last at Carrefour, which is a shame because they have way better snacks than Sultan Center (just sayin’).

Sultan Center Haul #4

At the Souk Sharq branch of Sultan Center, I literally had them check every other branch (including storage) to see if they had any Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Cookies in stock. The guy informed that they did in fact have them in the Sultan Center branches in areas like Jahra, Fahaheel, etc… (so far out of my way and just plain far). He mentioned that they might have them at the Sultan Center located at the Promenade in the Hawally. After snagging my Souk Sharq haulage (here), I went back home but couldn’t quite let it go. I just had to get more of those Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Cookies and as I’ve learned the hard way, these babies go fast! So at the break of dawn, I hit up the Sultan Center located in Hawally (Promenade) as well!

Because that’s just how insane I am, I waited for as long as I could before setting out (at the break of dawn) to the Promenade (Hawally) branch of Sultan Center in search of my beloved Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies. I managed to find 4 packs (score)! I also picked up yet another Dip (for Potato Chips). There was only one dude manning the cash register and as luck would have it, the thing straight up malfunctioned. It took forever for them to get it fixed. While waiting for them to fix it, I decided to browse around the very, very small Sultan Center and stumbled upon Dove Oxygen Moisture Shampoo which sounded so interesting (Oxyfusion Technology lawl they’re making stuff up just like Bath & Body Works tend to do). I also grabbed a drink (Snapple) and some gum (Wrigley’s Double Mint Chewing Gum) at the cash register. Solely for those Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies, the whole trip was worth it!

Sultan Center Haul #3

On April 15 Sultan Center (Souk Sharq) beckoned me yet again with its siren call and I ended up getting even more snackage! Honestly, I just wanted more of those Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Cookies, but couldn’t find any. So, I kinda’ went ham and overdid it with the other stuff. In my defense, they just had so many (relatively) new snacks!

More Chips Ahoy! Chocolate Chip (Brownie) Cookies!

Naturally, whenever I go to Souk Sharq, I make a quick stop at Sultan Center. After my Aldo Haulage (here), I did just that, and managed to find more of those insanely yummy Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies

They had an entire shelf with rows upon rows of all kinds of Chips Ahoy! Cookies (everything from Oatmeal to Peanut Butter) and in all kinds of different textures too (Original – Chunky – Soft Chunky – Chewy – Gooey/Filled – Mini and so on), but I only had eyes for the Filled ones (Brownie Filled, rather). At first I wanted to hoard the entire dozen or so, but than it occurred to me that others might want some too. So, I just took 2 packs reasoning that I could always come back and get more, once mine had ran out. I did go back for more shortly after, but all the Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies were gone (you monsters)!

On my life, these Cookies (reviewed here) are the best tasting things I’ve eva’, eva’ put in my mouth!

The Sultan Center Haul #2

I hit up Sultan Center… while I was starving (big mistake) hence the haulage. You should never go shopping for food when you’re hungry because you end up buying way more than you normally would. Anyhow, I usually take photos for my blog during the daytime, because the lighting is atrocious at nigh (warm, fluorescent, shadows everywhere) but I couldn’t wait for the sun to come up (hungry hungry LuLu) and apparently the Kitchen has the best lighting in the house, ergo photos taken on the Kitchen Island (as shown).
