for the price of the #1 dog you could probably buy 5 Costco dogs.

I know we tend not to speak of Ikea here, but their big rear end blue bags work wonders here. I bring mine when I make my pilgrimage and once it's full, it's time to cash out. Because I can carry my 1/4lb hot dog PLUS 20oz drink WITH refill in my other hand :whatup:

What's this Gourmet Dog Japon? Some sort of fake Japanese hotdog? Japan isn't known for dogs at all and they're usually total dogshit when you can find them unless you just buy the imported ones, ironically Costco probably has the best hotdogs in the country (and even then they're pork, not beef).

Costco needs no "cultural appropriation", their offerings are universal and loved no matter which country you're in!

They're hotdogs with wasabi mayo, nori flakes, and tobiko.

There is a Costco not far from Safeco Field, so one could conceivably eat Costco dogs in front of this vendor while maintaining cold eye contact. It would require sacrificing refill access, but I rarely need more than one 20oz fountain beverage.

This is a loving feat. That man decided that he wanted to eat a quart of frozen yogurt in one sitting and did not want to pay more than $3.30 for it.

The American vodka tasted awful last time I had it, but maybe it's better now. The French stuff was so cheap that there was no reason not to just buy it.

Pro move is to grab all the loose carts by your spot and bring them to the corral/front door. My record is 7

Last time I only got like 5 items and went to just put my cart back in the front cart area and carry my box of goodies and I just handed it off to a nice lady who went right in with it. The cycle was complete.

Bought like $20 in ribs and pressure cooked them in a mango habenero marinade I made and they turned out awesome. Got just about every sample they had yesterday too.

Resisted the urge to buy some of that golden island kbbq pork jerky because I end up eating the whole thing in like 1-2 days.

ok seriously HOW do i keep learning about things that I am apparently just walking obliviously by in the isles at Costco.

I should just go down every isle sometime and look at everything.

Then again, I wish to not be completely broke.

How did you heat it up? If it's like the Montreal Smoked Meat I sometimes buy at Costco, you could try putting the whole package in boiling water and then reshred it after. Make sure the plastic is safe to be heated though, or repackage it with a vacuum sealer or in an airtight ziplock bag.

The Kirkland nut bars are good and only 7 net carbs if you're a low-carb boy. Wholeheartedly prefer them over the Kirkland protein bars.

For sure boil it, and probably add 50% more time than the directions say. The middle was still cool when I did it the directed way. Extra time yielded a hot mass of meat that with just a touch of prodding and helping along was perfect in every aspect.

Thanks for the tip. Their protein bars are the only ones that have fiber, which is awesome except it makes the bar inedible with the awful texture.

An unfortunate case of copyright infringement has befallen Costco.

Their lawyers should have caught this wording. Would "Tiffany-style setting" have cleared since the argument was that "Tiffany" was a ubiquitous/generic term, like Kleenex or Xerox?
