Products of the West, We Welcome You!

Monday, September 25, 2006

In the past six months, a surge of Western grocery products have been flocking to the shelves in many grocery stores such as Safeway and Cosmo. While most of these products are priced extremely high, especially compared to standard American pricing, as they become more common-place, the prices will drop.

Just in the past week, a new wave of food products has found its way to the shelves of local supermarkets. Delicious breakfast foods such as Pop Tarts have dropped down to a reasonable cost. Other fantastic foods and condiments are suddenly available, such as Ranch flavor salad dressing, instance rice, Rold Gold Pretzels (which are far better than the crappy Turkish pretzels), and a variety of “new” sauces and candies. Other toiletry products are now available, such as Ivory soap and Right Guard deodorant. (I need to purchase some of this deodorant for my local dukaan owner; he stinks big time.)

Some may object to the amount of Westernization that Jordan has experienced over the past several decades, but I don’t see too many people protesting the use of satellite television, mobile phones, or DVD players. And where are the people burning their blue jeans? Trust me, the variety of grocery and other products that are on the way can only make life better. I admit that I am a bit biased, but I welcome our new Western overlords.

jordan is getting more gulf-ed..
Kuwait's TSC (the sultan center) the new owners of Safeway import every single american product you can think of, and if they don't have it.. you can go to the "ask for it" section and they'll order it for you, so Jordan's safeway stores are getting many goods from Kuwait now.
