I've checked gmarket (too expensive) and ezshop (not in stock) for cream soda with no luck. Anyone have any luck ordering it or getting it at Homeplus, Emart etc?

Thanks^^

I can't bother to read back through this to see if I wrote before. 

In Seoul, the basements of the orange BYC building and the pruple building next to it in Namdaemun Market on Mon to Sat from 9 to 5, you can get many things brought off US Army bases.  There's the grocery section of Shinsegye Dept Store (Myeongdong, Central City Bus Terminal, etc), Itaewon Foriegn Food Mart and one across the street, High Street Market, etc.  These are the ones, in person, you can buy from.  I just did this recently in Seoul.  Sometimes, the Dept Stores are expensive, but sometimes they have some surprises reasonably priced, or things on sale.  Don't underestimate them sometimes.  Namdaemun, has medicines, vitamins, toothpaste (if you're fussy about certain brands, etc).  Itaewon is already well known.

Online, there are plenty of options, G Market, I Herb, Amazon, etc.  Some of these will depend on whether you have a credit card or not.  But Visa Debit may or may not be an alternative. 

Photo below.  BTW, white Japanese noodles pics have a salty taste and are pretty good.  So, is the "Creap" coffee creamer - best I've ever tasted actually.  Red package up top has Indian rice meals and are pretty good too.  Just boil package inside in a pot of water for a few minutes and serve.  I bought from all the places mentioned above in Seoul.

IHerb, McCanns oatmeal is really good and reasonably cheap if that's your thing too.

Does anyone know if it's possible to buy Nizoral shampoo in Korea? I searched Gmarket and it's shipped from overseas and takes a long time to arrive. Is it available to buy in pharmacies here?

Has anyone been to a store in Seoul recently that offers a variety of foreign drinks? Specifically cream soda?

Shinsaegae department store supermarket section has loads of foreign stuff. They have waitrose from the UK for food and they sell quite a lot of different drinks including ginger beer, dr pepper, that Arizona ice tea stuff the Americans rave on about. Loads of variety in there.

Haha, didn't realize anyone raved about Arizona ice tea, and I'm from Arizona.

Have you seen any cream soda there? Thanks.

Hello, does anyone have a place (preferably online) that I can find wheat bran? I can only find out and rice bran on iHerb, and the few I can find on gmarket are either really expensive or labeled as animal feed.

You always have online giants that will deliver it to you globally at your doorstep. Amazon, eBay is there.
One essential information about it could be that you can look for the products on the company's official website. They might take some additional delivery charges, but at least you can be rest assured about the quality and can later avail the customer support without any issue.

I had a pretty ok time buying from Gmarket except for once. Is Amazon faster delivery? If you're ordering a lot is the international shipping crazy expensive? @.@

Good luck with Amazon, it seems completely random if they will ship stuff to Korea or not. There are shipping companies in the US that will accept packages you order then ship them on to Korea, but their websites are either only in Korean or too complicated.

If it hasn't already been done so, some links to the websites that offer the shipping you're talking about would be super helpful.

I know I've used Borderfree Shipping a couple of times, https://www.borderfree.com/ and had good luck with them.

I love Coupang's rocket 직구. They've really beefed up their offerings, imo. 30,000 won+ for free shipping and it arrives within 5 business days (personal experience), not too bad.

Oh really? Could you let me know what some of them are? I know some Korean or could have someone help me translate if I can't figure it out  :cheesy:

Has High Street Market closed down? Or will it close down soon? I noticed everything on their website is sold out.
