99 Ranch Market

As you all know, I like love grocery stores.  A few months ago a 99 Ranch Market opened up in Plano, TX. We now have several Asian markets within a 30 minute drive from our house.  Now we have a choice between Asia World Mart, Ko-Mart, Hmart, and 99 Ranch Market.  Apparently there must be a lot of Asians living in Dallas because to support all these stores. 
Wooo..wooo.woooeeee!!! I told Mike that it was just like we were back home in Hawaii (except 99 Ranch is no longer in Hawaii). 
After looking around the store, I've concluded that this is the Asian market to go to for natto (fermented soybeans), tofu, meats, and seafood, and sauces. For the most part, the prices seem to be cheaper than Asia World Mart (another close Asian market). 

Oh my goodness, it's Hawaii in a box.  Not really, but it's Hawaiian Host Chocolate covered Macadamia Nuts!  Can you see the price of that box?  $7.79!!!!
And look, other Hawaii sightings.  Aloha Shoyu. There were at least three different Aloha shoyu bottles there!
I thought this danish looked neat. It's a "Teriyaki Danish." It looks like a pastry on a stick with bonito flakes on the outside.
This 99 Ranch location houses a bakery, a sushi stand, dim sum station, a Chinese food station, and a noodle bar.  It's one stop shopping. One day after work Mike and I checked out the dim sum and Chinese food there, and then ended our night shopping for groceries.

the price of those chocolate covered macadamia nuts worries me. . .there is no way they can charge so little unless the candies inside the box were previously on the production floor. but for $7.79 i will eat some floor spice.

Isn't $7.79 expensive for a box of Hawaiian Host chocolates? Are they whole mac nuts? Gotta check out the price at Longs. Will get back to you.
