For about 20 bucks you can get a pre-packaged treasure trove of carne asada under the Bill Bailey packaging. Please experience this package of extremely marinated flank steak and burn it with every fire you have available to you. I suggest cutting the fucker up with whatever instruments you have available before you burn it to oblivion.

Restaurants source from multiple places and Costco *is* a wholesaler. The guy in front of you with a dozen 25lb bags of rice on an orange cart isn't buying it for home use.
There are Costco locations dedicated just to selling to businesses.

As someone who regularly shops at BOTH Costco and Restaurant Depot, when there are items that are directly comparable, the Costco price is always better. When stuff is on sale at Costco, sometimes drastically cheaper.

The difference is the deeper selection at RD, as well as stuff you would only use in a commercial kitchen.

And for a lot of those items, go to a Business Costco. They still exist, carry a totally separate stock slated towards small businesses, and are usually pretty slow.

We decided on a last minute trip to Canada and passed not one but two Costcos after the border crossing. Costco extends across all nations, all cultures & creeds. We are all equal in the eyes of value.

A couple weeks ago, I took a train from Madrid to Barcelona. Passed by a Costco in Getafe on the outskirts of Madrid. Apparently this was one of the two Costcos in Spain.

Has anyone seen Atkins brand Lemon Bars at Costco, and if so, is it a good deal to get them there? Asking for a co-worker, and a bunch of crappy, stressful events have kept me from going by to check.

Shoyu Ramen w/ chicken they have in the frozen section of our Costco is loving great. I pair it with a croissant from the bakery and have a very good time eating them.
Costco switching to the plastic bins vs. plastic wrap cardboard has been aces.

Yep, that's where their Spain corporate office is. It makes no sense to be in the middle of nowhere, but at least it's so empty you can go shopping and never wait in line. The one in Sevilla is the same way, it was on the outskirts of town and completely deserted.

It's ok. As a former Catholic, it's just like taking the communion but skipping the wine. No big deal. You're absolved.

The onions are fully optional. They perform a similar job to the kraut.

The kraut, however is not optional

I buy my glasses there for very cheap. The brand selection is not as extensive as a specialty store, but since I don't really give a poo poo about what brand of glasses I'm wearing it works for me.

They're the cheapest glasses you can get in terms of price. I've always had great service whenever I've needed to get my frames adjusted or new nosepieces as well.

I'm wearing some Costco glasses right now, my third pair from the 'co over the course of the last 7ish years. I'm actually gonna go in and get some new ones and get a hookup for some prescription shades too.

Have been wearing Costco glasses for 14+ years. The same frame for the last 7 or 8. Richard Taylor "Scottsdale" is my gig. Also have 3 rx sunglasses from there.

I'm heading to the UK next week. I'm excited to try the cottage pie and jacket potato with chili in the food court.

Hopefully the chili isn't sugary anymore, I was so disgusted by it that I'm scared to try it again. The inside of the cottage pie is at a temperature roughly equal to the surface of the sun, so be careful. It's 90% potatoes, so it takes forever to cool off even after you cut the top open.

I just want to know who the hell puts tuna on a potato. The rest I can understand sorta (cheese, baked beans (?), coleslaw). Maybe I should just stick with cheese. As for pie temp, I have eaten Hot Pockets before. The skin on the roof of your mouth grows back eventually.
