I started drinking sparkling water when I was in the US. Back then my friends started a trend to switch away from high sugar sodas. I remember they used to buy Dasani sparkling water, which was really great. Then they started to try other brands such as La Croix and Kroger which we liked as well. Our favorites were Dasani Lime, La Croix Coconut, and Kroger Tangerine. Coming back to Kuwait, I suddenly lost all my favorite options until I found Perrier with flavors in cans. Since then I started drinking Perrier and always have it in stock. I remember finding La Croix at Sultan Center, but it was over priced. Each can were selling for 500 fils, which was a lot for sparkling water. Two days ago, I found out that Tons App is selling La Croix Coconut from City Center Shuwaikh. There was a great offer of selling each can at 300 fils, so I stocked 120 cans plus my current inventory of Perrier. Check out City Center Shuwaikh on Tons App.
With the Corona Virus issue spreading all over the world. Most businesses are losing big time. On the other hand, some businesses are thriving and becoming very attractive for investors. In the past there wasn’t a business as attractive as Talabat and Carriage for investors. I don’t think this is the case anymore. The beauty about online groceries is that it works during good times and bad times. During the good times, it provides convenience for the customers. During the bad times, it provides the essentials and it cater for the needs of the customers. For all investors, keep an eye on Tons Online Grocery.
iOS App: TONS

TONS the ultimate grocery app in Kuwait has improved since the last time I posted about it. The latest update is a great one, which is adding the Chabra, which is the vegetable market in Kuwait. When I went to the vegetable market in Kuwait, I was really surprised to see the fruits and vegetables very fresh. I am 100% sure that this isn’t what we get in the local supermarkets. The freshness and quality of the groceries is abnormal, and the main reason people don’t go there as much is due to the distance. The Chabra is very far away, and the location isn’t convenient for those who live in Kuwait City. From now on, I will be using TONS Fresh to order online from the Chabra.
You can see a sample from the products in TONS Fresh, and you could tell that the quality is different than anywhere else in Kuwait. I honestly believe that businesses will start ordering from TONS Fresh more than the normal consumer, because the way to place an order is very simple. Simplicity is key for any business, and old way of doing things by either phone calls or fax is gone. The new way of doing things is all online.
Try ordering from TONS Fresh today, and let me know about your experience. The day you order from TONS Fresh will be the day you change the way you buy your groceries from now on.
TONS my very favorite grocery app in Kuwait finally launched an Android app on Google Play store. The past few months I was using my wife’s iPhone to order from TONS, because I am an Android user. After testing the Android app, I realized that it doesn’t have all the features that the iPhone have. The features will be released in the upcoming updates and eventually it will match the iPhone app. TONS is the most advanced app in terms of coding and design in the Middle East. The moment you use the app, you could tell that it wasn’t programmed or designed in Kuwait. The most impressive features are shopping by force touch, product replacements, and push notifications. I believe that TONS will be the next Talabat or Carriage in terms of success, so lets see how that turns out in the upcoming future.
I used TONS to order my groceries from Mishref co-op, but I recently switched to Shamiya co-op. For some reason, it is much more efficient than Mishref and I get my orders really fast and always on time. I also heard that Yarmouk co-op is a very good option, so try either one whenever you order from TONS.
TONS is the most innovative grocery app in the Middle East, and specifically Kuwait. Most of the time I don’t feel like driving to the supermarket, so I order everything online. Most of the apps and websites were very basic, and have a very limited selection of products. When TONS was released, it was a game changer, because they shoot their own high resolution pictures, and write down the nutrition facts of most of the products. There are 2 supermarkets as of now, which are Mishref and Shamiya, and more are joining soon.
The coolest feature in TONS app is the force touch where you can buy everything using one hand. To use the force touch feature, just choose a product and hold your finger until you see the sliding bar. When you push up, you increase the quantity of the product, and when you push down, you decrease the quantity. If you continue to push down, you can delete the product from the cart. This feature made shopping extremely simple, and I have never seen it in any other application in the market.
The most interesting thing is that their domain is www.tons.com which is a very rare domain to have since it is only 4 letters.
When you buy from TONS, they will assign a personal shopper to get all the products and groceries from the supermarket. They handpick the best groceries in the supermarket, but sometimes the groceries in the supermarket isn’t good quality. Overall, I really enjoy using the app, even though there is so much room for improvement.
The most beautiful thing is when I receive TONS bags and have my products and groceries inside them. The demand was very high for TONS that they sold out of all their bags, but more are coming soon.
Update: Tons currently have lots of supermarkets on board such as City Center, Carrefour, Jabriya Co-op , Yarmouk Co-op , Shamiya Co-op , Mishref Co-op , and more
