MNL TTD/Eats: Landers Superstore

Here’s a secret: I actually love shopping! But my favorite kind of shopping has got to be grocery shopping because food, duh. Landers Superstore has been open for a while but I just never got around to going there because traffic after work is brutal. Until last week because someone else drove and I was able to catch up on Pokémon Go in the car :3

Landers is giant! Just going in and it feels so much bigger and brighter than S&R (aka local Costco). Nothing against S&R because I still love them but it’s nice to see something different in a long time. It’s got the similar concept of the wholesale club so we got membership (it’s still at 20% off!) and galavanted around inside.

They sell some brands similar to S&R’s like Skippy, Nescafe, Coke, Swiffer, Tide, etc. (even some Kirkland Signature stuff!) but they also sell stuff that I always enjoyed in California and can’t seem to find in Manila. For example:

There were a few other things I’ve never seen such as wine flavored ice cream and individually packed and ready to eat fancy desserts like creme brûlée, souffle, and other sweets. I was looking for some apple cider vinegar as a natural remedy for my cough but instead found one already mixed with honey and ready to drink!

I also found a giant and inordinate amount of Napa cabbage in a bag. Probs only useful for a giant hot pot party, making a lot of homemade kimchi (yum I should try doing that!), or having a restaurant that has Napa cabbage in every dish. I love Napa cabbage but who seriously consumes that much without getting sick of it?

Aside from groceries, Landers also sells pizza, hotdogs, rotisserie chicken, and ice cream ready to eat. The pizza was so so and I think I still prefer S&R pizza sorrryyyyy. The rotisserie chicken was good though and I really like how they don’t use plastic for their packaging! Aluminum foil and a cardboard box will keep the chicken warm and is recyclable! They also have a Caltex gas station on the premises like Costco! (Caltex is essentially Chevron)

So right now it’s a toss up between the two for me. My OGs didn’t really like Landers cause I guess they like the familiarity of S&R. I happen to like both so I’ll keep going to both :]
