The first weekend home, my family and I decided to take a trip to one of my favorite cities in the U.S., Cincinnati. You just can't help but feel history when you go to Cincy. I have to confess that my primary reason for visiting Cincy was not a history lesson, but to visit one of the biggest grocery and specialty food stores in the country, Jungle Jim's. If you are a foodie, you will feel as if you have died and gone to heaven here. The selection is so vast I couldn't even fit everything I wanted into the frame of my camera, but I did attempt to, at least.
|Jungle Jim's truly is foodie land...|
|This isn't your ordinary supermarket. They even tried to make it look like a jungle!|
|One of my favorite sections, the olive bar...actually, this is only half of the selection available...|
|Attention cheese lovers! JJ's has a selection of cheeses from nearly every cheese producing country you can imagine. This section is devoted to American and United Kingdom cheeses. There is a whole other section on the other side full of even more cheese!|
|Part of the wine section...there were about 10 other aisles behind me, too...|
|The vast produce section|
|Some of the tropical fruits such as dragon fruit, lychees, and one I had never heard of before: longons. I wouldn't recommend them, they tasted like what I imagine would be a fruity, slimy eyeball. Yuck! But, it seemed a lot of other people liked them...without JJ's I wouldn't have even had a chance to try something new!|
As you can see from these photos, if you are ever in the Indiana/Kentucky/Ohio area, this place it totally worth checking out! This store is so vast, but I wanted to give you a snippet of the things I love about this store. I'm so jealous of the Cincy residents who get to shop here regularly!
