--By Rebekah Godfrey Translated by Jean Huang

If you've been in Taipei for awhile, you've heard about Wellman's. It's usually the first import store new expats run to, besides Costco. Wellman's is located in a prime spot on ZhongShan North Road, near Taipei American School. It's a popular place for both foreigners and locals to pick up Western goods. You can find almost anything at Wellman's -- they have a large variety of cake mixes, cereals (the cheapest Grape Nuts in Taipei), canned beans, crackers, cookies, Pop-Tarts, potato chips, sodas and cheeses. You can also find butterscotch chips, corn meal, American-style brown sugar, Crisco, PAM cooking spray, tubs of Cool Whip, applesauce, tortillas, graham cracker crusts and Planter's peanuts. If you're on a diet, you will be happy to find Slim-Fast mixes, whole wheat flour, sugar-free jello and low-calorie snacks. For Thanksgiving, be sure to stop by for a turkey, some pumpkin pie filling, Pillsbury pie crusts and French's fried onions for your green bean casserole. Another reason to visit is to read the large advertisement board outside the store. Are you looking for piano lessons, a new car, furniture or for a domestic helper? Check the ad board; you just might find what you need!
