Default Supermarkets

I've been to aruba maybe 7 or 8 times since purchasing my timeshare in 2005. My wife always likes shopping at Ling and sons. How are the other supermarkets right beside,Super Food and Kong Hing. I know Super Food has some discount card. Where is cheaper to shop with good quality food?

We prefer Ling. We were at Super Foods yesterday and it has alot of Dutch products. We bought some yogurt as they had a brand I didn't recognize but it was only 10% fat (we'll see). Anyway, the fruit did not look as good as Ling. DH went to the other store but we usually shop Ling. I do not like Certified.

We like Kong Hing and have found it to be cheaper than Ling & Sons. We also shop Certified, too, which is even cheaper on some products but is not organized very well (kinda warehouse-like.) We like to shop where the locals go (Ling & Sons makes us feel like we're in the U.S. which we don't care for.)

I was disappointed in Ling & Sons this most recent trip (Jan 17-31). They ran out of the basics quick, especially milk products. But they have what we like, so we'll continue to go. They also have the cheapest case of Amstel Bright- the best beer in the universe- $34 per case. I also use Super Foods and Kong Hing.

They always seem to run out of milk. I went to Ling's the other day and not one bit of milk. Went to Kong Hing, and they had plenty!!
