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 (Shuwaikh) Collective Haul

It was towards the end of summer…

I was starving and I was in a spend-y mood (deadly combination). Now, despite the huge haulage (as evident by the photo above), I was actually very, very, very disappointed with the Shuwaikh branch of The Sultan Center! There were bugs having a party on all the exposed fruits and veggies, fridge doors were left open (meaning the frozen food items like burger patties, seafood, and whatever else were just left to melt), every single tub of ice-cream I picked up was sticky (gross!), the seal was broken on a lot of food items, other food items (an entire row of Lay’s Forno Lemon & Black Pepper Baked Potato Chips in the smallest size) had expired months ago (yet still remained on the shelves), the whole place was a mess! Some areas (with the most traffic) were relatively alright but for the most part, the entire place looked like a scene from Mad Max… lol imagine how much larger this haul would’ve been if I hadn’t been grossed out.
