The slow Search…


I have stopped at different Co-ops over the last three weeks, and I have been searching for this gum and for the life of me I can’t find it! They keep telling me its sold out or they don’t have it! I couldn’t find it at Sultan Center, Yarmouk Co-op, Mishref Co-op, Dhahia Abdulla Al-Salem Co-op, Khaldiya Co-op, and De’eya Co-op. The only place I managed to find it is at a random baqalah in the Shuweikh Industrial Area! I was so happy I found it that I had four in the same day, I couldn’t get enough of the taste! Now I’m keeping the box with me at all times!
