I went shopping for Pearl River and Maggi yesterday and couldn't find either!

I didn't go to any of the Kroger, Walmart or Publix SUPER marts though because they are so far from the house.

As usual, the smaller markets are over-run with Kikkoman and unknown (to me) other brands of Chinese and Japanese sauces!

Gonna have to hit the BIG markets I guess!

Is this crazy: With all this talk about soy sauces, I get this 'urge' to run to the fridge and get me a teaspoon of the stuff .. all by itself!

Rural people get used to shopping on the internet. You can find anything on the internet.

There are advantages to low sodium. At 71, I do not have high blood pressure, do not retain fluid, and my doctor never mentions limiting my salt intake.
People who eat what might be called a typical American diet, with 4 to 10 mg. of sodium per day, would lose about 2 to 4 lbs. of water that is retained in their bodies, if they reduced their sodium to no more than 1.5 mg. Eating a lot of simple sugar and taking ibuprofen regularly, will also cause water to be retained. The reason is because those things are toxic above a certain level and the body's defense is to dilute it with more water.

I do unless I can only purchase stuff by the case!
And the shipping charges are usually more than what you purchase!

I do a lot of my shopping on eBay where the shipping charges are usually free.

My better half loves Curve Crush perfume which use to cost $54.00 in the store but on ebay I pay $16.00 with free shipping.

I buy from this one company with over 100,000 positive feedback ratings and have never been ripped off!
The perfume is in the original, unopened package and is the real deal.

Same goes for my printer inks.
I get original unopened 12 packs for $6.00 which use to cost me over $100.00 in the store.
(Again, from a company that has over 100,000 positive feedbacks and free shipping.)

The most important thing is .. I will not purchase from anyone that doesn't allow third party payment ... like Paypal.

To put my CC in some unknown sellers hand is not a gamble that I will take.

Been using PayPal for over ten years and have never been disappointed!

WOW!
Sorry folks!

I've strayed from the topic quite far!

And you wonder why my pantry is so full.
Don't forget mushroom soy sauce - a jug like this costs around $5.00 at the Asian market.

I have heard of it but >>> never tries it. Right now, I have so much in my pantry that I am staying out of supermarkets until 2019.

"Maggi is a dark, hydrolysed vegetable protein-based seasoning sauce, which is very similar to East Asian soy sauce without actually containing soy. It is used most often in soups and sauces."

You might want to try it. It comes in small bottles as described here:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0041...1SPBRCY5ECSMS3

This is also acceptable product:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00FN...ID=81JM-5hBrSL

If you like it hot:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0052...CH0KMN0NHCKF6A

You can get it much cheaper in your regular store if you have German or Imported section there. If not try World Market or any place that also sells continental food. Here I get it for ~$4. It's concentrated and last for a while.

Pay attention to the label. It has to be original Maggi, not that awful substitute Made in China called Jugo.
So, do NOT buy this: (well, you might like it, but I think it's awful)

Wow, I grew up with Maggi. At least I think so. There was always a bottle of it in the pantry, though I never saw how my mum used it. I wasn't allowed in the kitchen while she was cooking.

Since it's wheat based, it should taste more like Japanese than Chinese soy sauce.

I learned about it when my favorite Chinese restaurant burned down. I was hankering for their chow fun so I looked up how to make it. I even got an outdoor propane wok to make it. Some dishes are so good, it's worth going the extra mile to make it the right way.
