Asian Food Products at Amazon.com & Wegman's
Sometimes during this crisis the choices of how we're going to feed our families have placed tremendous pressure on us to create different meals for our family.
But the [rpblem is after reading the recipe they ask for certain ingredients not exactly readily available at our local supermarkets. I'm talking traditional authentic sauces. Don't get me wrong most supermarkets have an international aisle and the most common ingredients are available and catered to American taste. They are slow to introduce Vietnamese cuisine and sauces.
If you don't care if the availability is commercial american Asian sauces then fine.
At Wegman's, they see a potential market share by catering to the Asian Community. It's easy convenient and Asians have settled in the suburbs catering to affluent Americans who choose to buy authentic sauces and ingredinets. There is actually a refrigerated section for Asian produce like Baby Bok Choy, fresh ginger, Gai Lan, snap peas, snow peas, and Daikon to name a few.
Another company that may be very surprised at to offer Asian products is Amazon.com. Yep, Amazon.com. They offer a wide variety of Asian products and sauces and although you might pay more, various company vendors see Amazon helping them sell some popular products, so be careful and shop around.
The products are fresh and note that the rating system may be low may be from Asians that know they can pay less but when you need a prouct and this Covid-19 is creating stress shopping at these Asian supermarkets, I feel just click and you'll get your poduct delivered right away.
When this Pandemic is over, I will be doing a Vlog at a Asian Supermarket, introducing new vegetables, exotic fruit, pre-packaged frozen dumpling, varieties of Ramen Noodles, Asian table wear and cooking equipment to all types of sauces.
Stay in touch.
