Cool Finds at S&R – October 2015

I visited S&R again last week, saw this little Christmas village diorama and thought it was nice! Having the stations show the different S&R branches was just witty

Christmas will be upon us soon, sooner than I can keep up with! It seems like time is moving so fast these days!

Halloween is also just around the corner!

Anyway, here are some cool items I found at S&R during my trip last week. I think now is a good time to start buying gifts and stocking up on items for Christmas!

Various bath sets were still on sale – I already showed some of them on Buy 1 Take 1 during my previous post.


Cetaphil is on promo – it’s time to stock up if you are a Cetaphil user! It is P200 OFF, from P679.95 to only P479.95!

Various Pantene shampoos and conditioners were also still on sale. Discounts are significant! For example, this Pantene Ultimate Conditioner was P599.95, but is now only P399.95, discounted by P200! That’s 33% OFF!

This tiny, portable hair dryer from Severin is also less P100. It’s less bulky to bring this along during your travels!

Towels and bath mats were also on sale. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw some towels on sale for only P199.95! Stock up on some now, especially if you plan to replace towels for the New Year!

I also saw this La Filatella Mozzarella that was on promo (less P80, or about 20% OFF, now only P319.95 per kilo). What intrigued me about this mozzarella was its white color. I am not a mozzarella expert, but the La Filatella Mozzarella looks like a fresher, more natural-looking mozzarella because of its white color. It’s just that whenever I see fresh mozzarella being used on TV, it is usually this sort of color.

Anyway, it looks like fresh mozzarella – I imagine it will be great with sliced ripe tomatoes, tomato salads, or on its own. I think they will work very well with tomatoes though!

Some of you have been asking me if cream cheese was available. Here are the various brands of cream cheese:

There’s even a wholesale box of cream cheese (2 kgs) available for only P799.95!

New discovery! I saw these Hiland ice cream pints for only P99.95 per pint! I haven’t had a chance to try them out yet, but I plan to try them soon. I am going out of town so put off buying some to try. P99.95 for a pint of imported ice cream? This is nearly 1/3 the price of other premium ice creams. Hiland is a dairy company, and they use their own milk to make these ice creams. If this is as good as I hope, and comparable to other brands’ ice creams, but at 1/3 the price, it will seriously become a household staple.

Craving for some steak? These Meltique Beef Striploin Steaks, Karoubi, and Ribeye cuts are also on promo!

I also saw these frozen squid rings on sale – I think they will make frying up some squid rings (calamares) so much easier. Only P269.95 for a kilo, and all you have to do is bread and fry them.

In case you want to try to eat healthy before Christmas season non-stop eating happens, I found some Red Mill Muesli and some Red Mill Steel Cut Oats. They are not on promo, but health-conscious people always talk about Red Mill products, so I thought I’d give it a mention  It’s nice to see them available at S&R too, and not just exclusively at health stores.

I also saw these GH Gracious 3-pc Serving Set that were discounted by P180, now only P649.95! I immediately thought that they would make a great container for TV marathon parties! Halloween is right around the corner – some of you might be planning a night of scary movies with friends! Imagine everyone huddled together on the couch, with this bowl in front. It would be so convenient to have some nacho chips in the bowl, and 3 kinds of dip easily accessible to everybody! There would be no need to pass around bowls of dip – everything would be together in one self-contained package.

The bowls are placed on top of a wooden bridge-like thing, and it all just rests on top of the bowl, but is easily removed.

And what would a get-together be without a little buzz? These Lindeman’s Shiraz and Lindeman’s Merlot bottles are Buy 2 + 1, so 3 750 ml bottles for only P549.95! That’s less than P200 per bottle!

According to some reviews I read, they taste better than what you would expect for the price 

These Johnny Walker value packs give you a free luggage when you buy 4 Johnny Walker Double Blacks (P6,559.95 for 4 1L bottles), or 5 Johnny Walker Black Labels (P4,194.95 for 5 1L bottles):

These bottles of Hennessy VS with the colorful silicone sleeves caught my eye. These are P599.95 each (200 ml).

Halloween is just a few days away. In case you haven’t prepared anything for your Trick or Treaters, easily grab some Halloween candy!

Hope you enjoy your Halloween weekend! 🙂
