Food Shopping

Johnnie and I go to the commissary on base for grocery shopping once a week.  A commissary is a supermarket on a military base for military personnel and their dependents.  It has all of the typical groceries and products that we normally use with only a few exceptions (Coconut Water and Lemon Zest Luna Bars please). However, even the exceptions are easily ordered on the internet - I love technology!

There are two fairly large Korean grocery stores close to our apartment.  I love walking through them just to look at everything and usually only pick up a couple things if any.  Very few things are in English in these stores.  Even "American" products are usually packaged for Korea with Hangul writing.  I tend to go by the pictures on the products but still some things are completely unrecognizable.

It looks like a typical supermarket.

I have no idea what most of this is...

Fresh little octopuses!

A larger frozen octopus!

SPAM is recognizable in any language

Some familiar boxes... Special K, Fruit Loops, Frosted Flakes

And some familiar bottled drinks... Coke, Powerade, Gatorade, Vitamin Water
