What's the pizza like in the Japanese Costco? As I understand it, there is barely any cheese in Japan.

Its rice cake with eel for toppings and squid ink for sauce.

Z so good

I don't think I've seen Pub Mix in the Japanese version.

Actually the Costco here seems like it'd be really unpopular due to the large sizes and necessity of a car but against all stereotypes of Japanese tastes it's incredibly popular. The sizes seem to be similar to the American ones although they're a bit more expensive. I suppose it's mainly for families with houses or people with larger flats to store it all, I used to go by train but it was a miserable experience so now I just rent a car once a month and stock up.

BITTER POOR PERSON


Tried the two pack of flatbreads in the prepared foods section (was new at my local Costco), one is barbecue chicken (chicken breast, cheddar, red onion, barbecue sauce) and the other is pesto meatball (meatballs, mozzarella, tomato slices & sauce, pesto.)

Barbecue sauce was too sweet, meatball half was surprisingly good. Would only buy again if they changed the sauce or if I could talk someone behind the counter into making me one with two of the meatball variety.

Went shopping at Costco a few months ago and there was only a thirty cent difference between the Kirkland regular toilet paper and the Charmin ultra soft two-ply with twice as many rolls. It was amazing.

One day you'll realize it's because they just wrap Charmin really loosely on the spool so it 'feels soft', which means you get less paper and the rolls don't last near as long.

Yeah don't buy the charmin. You get much much more bang for the buck with the Costco tp and it's like wiping your fat goony hemmeroided rear end with silk too

Can confirm. It's excellent. I was skeptical at first, but it was easy on the ol' butt.

Charmin red is good, it's charmin blue that's bad. Unfortunately, costco doesn't always carry the red so it's one of those intermittently available items

You have a defective brain if you're not using a bidet and flushable baby wipes.
