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 #8

Of course I couldn’t leave Souq Sharq without making a quick stop at Sultan Center!

Sultan Center Haul #7

I popped by Sultan Center (Salmiya) to replenish my stock of Tortilla Chips and Salsa (both of which were repurchases). I also grabbed x2 Nesquik Chocolate Flavoured Cereal because I was still craving it since my last haul (here) where I mistakenly grabbed the wrong thing. Lastly, I picked up a few drinks, because I was getting sick of drinking Karak Tea (that came in those purple boxes).

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 #6

Like I said in my previous Spotted at Sultan Center post (here), I was hangry, hence the snackage. You know what? Looking at the haulage, it just occurred to me that I kinda’ do shop a lot at Sultan Center, so at this point, I might as well sign up for a Sultan Center Card (to benefit from whatever benefits that come with the Card). Knowing myself, the moment I sign up for the Sultan Center Card, I’d probably move on to Lulu Hypermarket or Carrefour or something, for good lawl Anywho, I picked up some Chips and Dip, some Fruits, a thing of of Caramel Popcorn, a tiny jar of Caviar and some Personal Care stuff (to qualify for the Scratch & Win Promo which I’ll be going over in detail, below).

Sultan Center Haul #5

Towards the end of Ramadan, I decided to check out the Salmiya branch of Sultan Center, for a change. Unfortunately, I got a lot of unwanted attention from the younger set (so thirsty!) which just reminded me why I so rarely visit the Salmiya branch. I mean at Souk Sharq, I pretty much shop in peace (bar one or two minor incidents). However, at the Salmiya branch, I’d end up with a few stragglers trailing behind me the whole time I’d be there and they’d be mumbling the most random things at me! Despite getting absolutely ZERO encouragement from me, they’d even feel the need to give me their input! When I grabbed the KitKat Peanut Butter Bar, one guy was like “No, no, you don’t want that. Trust me, go with the Original“, which despite my best efforts, actually made me laugh (because no one had even asked him for his opinion)!

In my efforts to, y’know, live to see another day (full deets here), I managed to snag a few of the more “healthy” snacks (lawl) as you can clearly see. They’ve actually got a ton of cool items over at the Salmiya branch of Sultan Center, but I avoid the place because whenever I do go, it always happens to be crowded, and I personally prefer to hoard shop in peace.

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!
