--By Rebekah Godfrey & Matt Gibson Translated by Annie Liu

Hidden in an alley close to the intersection of JhongShan and JhongJheng Roads lies an import foods store that you need to visit. Walking through the door, this writer met Steve Hsu, the jolly owner of Box Store (also known as 'ABC Box Store'). Steve has been operating the Box Store for 25 years. Most of his products come from California, via a distributor in Taipei. Although the store is small, there are plenty of products on the shelves. Most of the foods are Western "comfort" foods like Campbell's Chunky Soups, Tuna Helper (NT$135) and Liverwurst (NT$165). Although you can purchase some of these items at a wholesaler like Costco, many people don't want to buy such large amounts of items at once. Therefore, Steve offers smaller serving sizes of foods like cheese, sour cream and meat. Other popular items include the Couscous mixes (just add water), potato chips and sausages. A variety of sodas, including A&W Root Beer, Dr. Pepper and Crush are NT$30 each. Diet sodas are also available for people who want a break from Diet Coke! Corona and Guinness beers are also on hand.
