Quick Review: Food from here, food from there, food from everywhere!

An awesome array of food awaits at Jungle Jim’s. The mega grocery experience (it’s more than a store) is the type that one goes to not just to buy groceries but to get what is not available at other locations. From a walk in humidor to a hot sauce aisle large than most other stores regular isles this place has it all.

The first time one goes into the place it can be a little overwhelming but don’t fret. Grab a map. Yes, a map. What other grocery store needs a map? It will help you decided where to go and how to get there. We recommend just going up and down the aisles looking at what is available. Deciding on what looks good, and buying it. Don’t put too much thought into it or one might spend all day looking for good mustard (we spent an hour because we kept finding new ones in new locations.)

Unlike other places, which organize items by product type, Jungle Jim’s is organized by country. America, as a quick shop when you first enter, then by each region/country in the back (the “Back” is bigger than most stores….yeah for the last time it is huge). This works and it doesn’t. Great if you are looking for items to make an ethnic dish. Bad if you just want to buy a product but want to see what they have.

Besides the food Jungle Jim’s has a wide variety of “Attractions” or odd things hanging from the ceiling and other locations. A band of cereal mascots, a fish hatchery themed like a Russian nuclear plant, and the Nation Best Bathrooms are just a few of the things you can find.

Overall it is worth the drive to experience a one of a kind shopping extravaganza.
