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 #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!
