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.
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.
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 warehouse. 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
