The Philippines has been known to be a tingi-tingi market hence the popularity of sari-sari stores in villages and provinces; and growth in number of convenience stores in cities. Honestly, I prefer supermarkets as I get to see more things there and I always get excited whenever I see a new product (and believe me, you do not want to see my super giddy self in a supermarket). But I guess it has been quite a while since I last visited a supermarket. (Then again, it was just a few weeks ago.)
Look at what my mom bought from our local supermarket!
Mini Meiji products!!!
Hello Panda may not really look that small so here’s a pencil for scaling purposes. It’s only 18 grams.
Yan Yan also has a mini version (Yan Yan Kids). It’s only 30 grams!
I guess I need around 5 of each to satisfy my grumpy tummy.
