As if the giant Kroger in Harrison isn’t enough, we decided to check out Jungle Jim’s in Fairfield, Ohio. And let me tell you, it was definitely worth the trip.
Jungle Jim’s is the BIGGEST grocery store I’ve ever seen. But it doesn’t just have Doritos and Coca-Cola. There’s your typical American groceries, but it also has fresh seafood and bread, a candy store with old-fashioned candy and a whole section of the store is devoted to international foods.
We didn’t really need any groceries, but we couldn’t help ourselves. There were so many interesting things we just had to try, including building our own six pack of beer. Jungle Jim’s has a beer cave — a huge draw on a hot day like today.
Since it’s such a big store, there were thousands of things we passed up on, such as lychees and ghost chili salsa. We’ll definitely be back — maybe for a cooking class.
Jungle Jim’s, 5440 Dixie Highway, Fairfield, Ohio
Monday to Sunday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
