Shopping for Cheese in Muscat!

"Oooh, Kraft Singles Fat Free Sharp Cheddar, whoa! expensive!.. 2.790 OR (Omani Rials) = $7.24"

"Kraft Singles Fat Free SWISS! for 2.490 OR ($6.50).....CHEAPER!"

"Almarai Fat Free at .900 basia ($2.33)....CHEAPEST!!" (local-ish item) {from Saudi}

Then a hearty laugh from me and I look over and Amal is just shaking her head!

So, can anyone tell me if this is all that expensive compared to American prices???? Thanks!

I spend a lot of time at the cheese section. The trouble is the preservatives. I don't have my book with me but one is Am...something and it is in most and is a nasty. So now I get the Farmers one "Seriously" brand. Amal your mum is right to compare, you would hate to shop with me kid LOL.

Hey there!
Nola Again :-)
That is Crazy, I love cheese but would never pay more than $2 for cheese unless its the Fresh stuff from the Chesse bar!
I usually pay $1.50 for a package of 10-12 slices at Kroger, Of course the Kroger Brand. Kraft is about $2.25, give or take where you shop!
