A little over a year ago, Super 99 opened its new store across the InterAmerican Highway from Plaza Terronal.
As I look back on that post, I was not all that impressed. What a difference a year makes. Recently I have made several trips to the new Super 99.
There have been a couple things that Rey did that caused me to take another look at Super 99.
The first straw was when Rey removed several products, that I always purchased, to make room for their “Rey” branded products.
The second straw was the lack of ice cream choices in Rey. Not only choice limitation, but I have picked up more than one container that had been thawed and refrozen. Yuck.
So I decided to take a second look to see if my missing products happened to be in Super 99. Son of a gun. My latest walk-throughs have found a very nice store. The isles could be a hair wider, but there seems to be much more variety than in Rey.
If you like ice cream, Super 99 has more brands and favors than in any other store in David. Not only that, but they have Friendly’s Ice Cream. You may not know this brand, but when I lived in Virginia, one of my favorite outings was going to a Friendly’s Ice Cream store.
Three Hagen Daz pints will run you close to $18. One 1 1/2 quart container of Friendly’s will cost you around $5. To me, the Friendly’s is every bit as good. I have had “Banana Split”, “Maple Walnut”, “Vienna Mocha Chunk” and “Fruit Swirl”. My favorite is Maple Walnut.
The only complaint I have, and the thing that prevents me from shopping there more, is that I hate the aggravation of having to cross The InterAmerican Highway.
Who knows where I will be shopping in the future. RIBA Smith?
