For the past two days I have made a pit stop at Chedrui's to pick up ONE item, and have come home with arms loads of NEW goodies that we have all wished for.

Crisco Shorting in the can
Progresso Bread Crumbs (italian style)
McCormick, and Dunkee gravy mixes
Campbell gravy mix in cans
Kikkoman Sweet and Sour sauce mix, Broccoli-Beef Stir fry mix
TOLL HOUSE SEMI SWEET MORSELS (small and large bags)
Chow Mein Noodles
Bush's baked beans in the 28oz size cans (all flavors)
Gold Medal flour (small and med size bag)
Chex Mix (reg, sour cream & onion, and BBQ)
Paul Newman salad dressing
Hidden Valley salad dressing in pouch
Shake and Bake for chicken or pork
Manwich
All kinds of new spices from McCormich, and Spice Hunter brand
Skippy Peanut Butter
Betty Crocker cookie mixes in the pouch

That's what I found yesterday on a quick run through the store. Sorry to report, NO MIRACLE WHIP

I've also noticed that they're carrying lots of items from the US in the last few weeks. I was shocked to see several kinds of bottled El Paso salsa. I have to admit I've bought 2 bottles already. They make the mild kind that doesn't bite. (-: And it's so much quicker adding that to my recipies than chopping up everything and cooking it on my own when I'm in a hurry. The only thing that does bite is the price. 0-:

I found Heath Bars in the front of the store near the fake Christmas trees. Price is about double what you pay in Hawaii and if you've ever been to Hawaii, you know that sticker shock awaits you in any grocery store there.

American stuff is fine and a nice treat...BUT... I have long ago learned to enjoy the local products with mostly good dubstitutions and I can not bring myself to pay some of those outrageous prices. That said, I was really peeved this week when the ONLY flour I could find at Ched's was the American imports with prices 4 to 5 times that of the flour I usually buy here. I do alot of baking and the local stuff is the same.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Patricia...more for ME!!!!

Now, I have a question. What constitute being classified as a Hoarder?

Could it be any/all of the following things;

1. Your Monster truck looks like an LA low-rider when you leave Chedrui's parking lot?
2. Your shelves bend from the weight of what you purchased?
3. You buy yeast, and have NEVER baked bread, or made pizza dough in your life?
4. How many cans, bottles, jars, bags are classified as being a Hoarder, 4 is okay, but at 10 you get Hoarder alert?
5. People sit on your couch and cans roll out from underneath.
6. You have a HUGE can of Crisco, and you don't eat fried foods?
7. What to heck do you REALLY do with Molasses?
8. Manwich, is that really food? But, you gotta have 5 cans (hurricane season is coming)?
9. You run out of money at check out, and run to get more from the ATM and ask the bag person to guard with their
lives your stuff? BIG TIP INVOLVED.
10. Is a Hoarder similar to a Squirrel who stores nuts for the winter, or are you just NUTS?

there was regular flour there at regular price. next to it was the mountain of new stuff. gluten free flours of all sorts. makes me want a breadmaker for christmas. hint hint.
i almost got the hidden farms ranch dip packet then saw the price. turn around and another brand was there half the price. same with the mixes and beans and such. their new home brand, "springfield" is the cheaper version and so far, so good.
other items were yes, OUTRAGEOUSLY priced, and i just decided not worth it. like the sunkissed brand raisins. i am fine getting the bulk raisins when i want them. but good to know they are there.

paula, we are going to get oprah's guy to come over and de'hoard your house!

Not yesterday, or maybe it was Thursday, there wasan't. I know because the shelve next to it was empty with only one 20# bag. There were 2 local woman looking for the samething and we all said we would have to run to Megs.

Paula, you are quite welcome to most of it, you have a larger purse than I do. My budget does quite well with only the imported treat once in a while.

Treeson, you might consider using Chow Mein Noodles as a topper (available at Ched's). If that doesn't appeal to you, I did purchase in a foil package, tortilla strips which are used as salad toppings (same location as croutons, and salad toppings)

They where really good.

Nauticab, I like to horde, I must admit. Banana cream pie...oh my!

Coz_Aholic, my purse is small as well, but my taste buds are HUGE!!!

Does anyone know if K-Cups are available for Keurig coffee makers? My parents bought my wife and I one for Christmas. We are closing on our home in March and trying to go through stuff we want to import.


Thanks

we were lucky enough to see a small basket that fits in the coffee maker that allows you to use the keurig with any coffee. Cool deal. I do not believe they sell k cups there yet or even have the machine but I am not sure.
