No room in the suitcase anyway-
but you can buy it in Australia

|Other Intriguing Drinks|
|Many Hello Kitty products|
|Way too many durian products|
|Lots of other exotic sounding biscuits|

Salt & Seaweed sounds so much more interesting than Salt & Vinegar - yum! I do love foreign supermarkets!
I love your supermarkets photos.
I never think to do it when I'm holidaying in foreign climes!
I know I've read a durian post by you before (at least I think I remember reading a post about durian before!) but can you remind me what it is & why you don't like it ?
If I was in a foreign country, I would definitely be in the grocery stores. So many interesting things. I do that when I'm visiting in a different city, too. Things are different in different areas. Have a great weekend, Louise!
Vicki- I really don't like Salt and Vinegar. I remember a (short) while back getting duped into trying Balsamic Vinegar and Salt chips. I thought "ooh that sounds nice", til I bit it and realised that it was just S&V backwards! You can fool all of the people some of the time. Enough to try a chip at least.
Well remembered Brona. I snuck in a link to my durian article under the second durian product. But didn't make it obvious. My problem with durian is that is smells and tastes of burnt vomit- thankfully I didn't get even a whiff on this most recent visit. Here it is again
Frances - We get a little bit of variability here, but not that much between towns.
Salt and seaweed Pringles! Oh my! So many things out in our big world.
I'm wondering about the coconut spread...I love most things coconut...and the Pringles are a blast from the past.
Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.
You are right...you can discover a lot by what's on the shelves.
Love the photos of the different products. I thought about doing that when I travelled abroad but thought I would get strange looks. I think next time I will just do it regardless.

I just love your photo journaling, giving us glimpses into worlds we seldom visit. Yes, a supermarket in Singapore! You know, your post reminds me of the Japanese supermarkets. Have you been to any? You can actually sample sushis and other food items. Another world.
Thats fun! I like looking at foods from other cultures too.
What interesting products and I spied the Pringles too.
My husband and I enjoy sushi. It would be an experience to try it in Asia.
I wouldn't mind trying the chocolate products. Chocolate is part of my sixth food group. :-)
When my step-mom visited her native Philippines, she brought back dried mango for family and friends to try.
I'd also be willing to try salt and seaweed. As a child, my favorite chip flavor was salt and vinegar. Does that make me in the minority here? :-)
Mmmm. Pistachio Magnums! I discovered that ice cream in Spain and ate a bar almost every day I was there. I hope the pistachio flavor is available here soon.
I was also surprised by the way the melons were packaged in individual boxes. Around here they're just piled in a heap! Thanks for sharing your grocery store trip. Very enlightening and fun.
Always love visiting supermarkets too, as does Whispering Gums ... And of course Ms Gums.
BTW Have you been to Glutton's Bay ... Upmarket Hawkers ... for dinner?
Anyhow, enjoyed the photos.
Some interesting products. The sushi look the most appetising.
I never think about visiting the supermarkets other than popping in to pick up some snacks. I had to laugh at the Pringles... we have those in the US, but I've never seen Salt & Seaweed.
Interesting to see the differences in packaging - they all look very bright and colourful. My Snapshot is at http://chriscross53.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/mushroomy-things.html
