Grocery Shop With Me
Landers Superstore | Balintawak EDSA
Landers Superstore is a new superstore along EDSA Balintawak. Check out more details on www.landers.ph
Leave me at a beauty counter, I can spend an hour or two just swatching and checking out what’s new. But leave me at a grocery and I can do much more damage with my time and wallet, lol. Add to that a selection of home decor and not the usual grocery items, you can leave me to my business first if you’re not up to comparing, computing savings, etc. True enough, as I perused through the new Landers store the other day, I took a good 2 hours to finish up (add eating and a little chika time, photo-taking time which I don’t usually do but did so for this blog entry). If you’re wondering what Landers is, it’s very similar to S&R membership shopping – where you have to pay an annual fee to be able to shop and be able to dine in the store. Just like in S&R, they carry imported goods that aren’t usually available in local supermarkets. While it is easy to dismiss Landers as just another S&R, it’s not. They offer a much wider variety of brands – even products I haven’t encountered before! Vaginal deodorant powder, anyone? If you missed following me on Snapchat during this day, let me tag you along now.
I dream to have a lanai bed like this in the future. Maybe even put it indoors and make it a reading/breastfeeding/cuddle nook/siesta bed…anything goes.
They have a really neat home decor selection. I saw select IKEA furniture (like the red laptop stand and the white and black shelves in the photo above) as well! The oversized tufted cushion was so comfy, I got one for myself. Guess who loved it more than I did? Seleneypie.
People of the world, spice up your life! Their spice selection is so extensive, you don’t have to skip recipes anymore ‘cos you can’t find the certain spices needed in the local grocery. WOOT.
One of my favorite finds.. Tim Hortons French Vanilla!!! I got a can of it even if I didn’t know how it tasted but as I turned the corner, they were doing free tasting of it. I got another can as a backup.. Free tastes are really effective… on me. Haha!
I took so long in this aisle because President’s Choice is the devil. I’ve been craving intense sweetness in this pregnancy and this brand just had everything my tongue was craving. WHY! No doubt, I got one of the Chocolate Covered Raisins (one of my guiltiest pleasures). The others, I really had to exert self-control not to put in the cart. Haha.
I badly wanted to try this… two of my favorite things together! Who could go wrong with wine ice cream? Mercer’s, you are another devil. I, of course, held off until after my pregnancy – which I will then hoard these three above and just indulge. Hahaha!
I dub these Mommy Finds. Dove Baby isn’t available here in the Philippines – I actually didn’t know they had a baby line. I knew about Johnson’s Baby Naturals during the Johnson’s China excursion as they’re not available in our market as well. Glad they brought this in for those looking to go the more ‘natural’ route when it comes to baby care. Lastly, Band-Aid antiseptic!!! You know that situation where you/your child get wounded and you just don’t know what to put/how to treat it – alcohol (no-no! it further dries out the wound), betadine (usually), just soap and water? THIS IS IT. No more panic moments, moms. LOL
Dry shampoo and sea salt spray from a brand called Not Your Mother’s (grabbed these! Will share thoughts soon) and different makeup removers!
Vaginal powder deodorant, friends. I didn’t know there was such a thing! To remove odors and such. Playtex wipes and lastly.. hemorrhoidal wipes. Can you say this grocery is complete.. or what?
Cleaning finds. I was in cleaning heaven, you guys. If you follow my Snapchat (smariemac) or Twitter, you’d know how I’ve been obsessing with cleaning materials. I’ve been in full nesting mode (even bought a sofa) and cleaning the house like crazy. They have different brands of fabric mists from Lysol to Pledge to Febreze (my fave!). They also have carpet powder!!! I’ve been looking for this for a long time to clean the carpets/rugs at home.
Checking out their wine selection…. they have an extensive one! I think wine connoisseurs should check out their unique offerings. I was scouting something to try after I give birth, lol. You know, for those times both kids are sleeping and I would want to just unwind and have some Me-Time.
Their deli… no words. Best paired with the wines above. Will have a go at this after I give birth as well. Their cheese selection is something worth checking out too!
Landers Membership Card is priced at Php800/year but they have a promotion now that slashes it down to just Php640. Visit the store/Facebook to see more details.
After grocery shopping, one of the best things the superstore has is their delicious Landers Central food court. They have Brooklyn dough pizza which is super soft and not so flour-y as the competitors’. I love their hotdogs as well – the Turkey Beef one is my favorite! I would go back often just to eat here because their food is good.
I would definitely come back and do groceries here (as well as home decor shopping lol) more than S&R, where we usually go because it’s super near our house in QC. Landers is 7mins away from us too (no traffic), so it’s quite convenient as well. Let me know what caught your eye and what you’d like to try! Or if you’ve been, let me know your experience.
