If the refill was good for another dog though, I'd be all over that every time.

Just buy another*. Even at $3 you’re probably paying half what you’d pay at even a cheap fast food joint.

*You probably shouldn’t buy another, though. They’re large. One is enough.

Granted I'm a lot taller and wider than the average goon, but I usually order 2 because 1 leaves me hungry in 90 minutes or so. Case in point, it's been 2 hours since I had one and I'm already starting to feel hunger pangs again.

It is a ton of sodium though, so I know I should eat something different.

I too went to church today, just because I had some time to kill and was going to top off the tank. Nope, gas lines out to the road... first time I've seen that at mine. Then I remembered Snowmageddon was coming, tonight.

Sam Walton was moderately acceptable, most of his Sam Club ideas he stole directly from Sol Price and Price Club. Price Club is where Jim Sinegal got his start.
The Walton descendants can go gently caress themselves though. They suck.

Seriously if you ever want to read about the birth of warehouse stores and Costco, read the Sol Price book: https://www.amazon.com/Price-Retail-Revolutionary-Social-Innovator/dp/0988680602
Jim Sinegal wrote the forward. I am still kicking myself that I did not buy it while it was in the warehouse as Jim would sign it if you caught him out and about.

Actually Saint Sinegal started at FedMart you loving heathen. Costco and Priceclub operated independently of one another until their merger in 93'. Most of the original Costcos in Mexico and Canada were originally Priceclubs

It was delicious, as always. The pizza was a lot better than I was expecting, too. Might get one to go towards the end of our next trip. Everyone talks about how big them dogs are but the pizza slice I got was like 1/4 of an entire pizza for 2 united states dollars. When the total came up to $4.32, my girlfriend said "can we get a hot dog, too?" and the guy (Father Jeffrey, praise be) said "you want two hot dogs?" Food hasn't been this cheap since the early 90's.

I spent about 20% of the entire trip waltzing up and down the booze aisles, looking for that 3 pack of whiskey, but no dice. Either my local store Church didn't have them or it was only valid last week... BUT

the Baked Lays were on sale for the same price as Sun Chips. I am stocked for this next week. Now I am going to eat an apple pear, a fruit that I did not know existed 2 hours ago.

Pizza from the food court is pretty solid, not amazing, but incredible value. However, the Costco pizza you get in the refrigerated section is... not very good.
The pro move is to order a whole pizza from the food court to take home.

The amount of pepperoni they put on these pizzas probably makes it a better value than just buying pepperoni on it's own. There's a solid pound of pepperoni, if not more. You can take half of it off the pizza before cooking and save it for later and not miss anything.

I've never tried the Costco frozen pizza, but I can readily believe him when he says it's bad. I've never found a frozen pizza that was actually good, the best you can hope for is filling while tasting only slightly like freezer burn and cardboard.

Costco frozen pizza is actually very good. It's doubly good if you add more cheese.

I also really like their Shepard's pie for a not very healthy but quick and tasty dinner.

Nah dude, he's right, not only does it not taste anywhere near as good as the cafeteria, it just tastes completely off and terrible in general

I got that one that's covered in pepperoni and different types of cheese thinking it would be good and took it home and baked it and I think for the first time in a long time I couldn't finish a pizza beyond a single slice, it was absolutely awful

love everything else at Costco but their refrigerated pizzas are v bad

Correct, my mistake. He started at Fedmart, but was a VP for The Price Company from '79 until leaving in '83 to open the Seattle Costco.
Fun fact: Costco 401, San Diego, is the original Price Club store. Before that it was an airplane hanger owned by Howard Hughes.

Just bought appliance for my mom. Price was good, warranty (2 years plus 2 for Costco credit card) is good, delivery was alright but it’s through a third party. They dented the fridge door. Costco is replacing it at no charge, white glove service for pickup of the dented one and drop off of the new one, obviously also free of charge.

Remains to see if the appliances themselves hold up but they’re a “good” brand (mid-high end samsung) and have excellent reviews at other review sites as well as Costco.com.

We ordered them when we did because of a rebate FYI so it may be worth holding out until that comes around again.

Isn't the entire pizza from the food court $9.99? Seems like a no-brainer to just get that one instead. Go to Papa Murphy's if you want a take-and-bake.

Hah, no.

A machine-made pizza put on a conveyor belt is not a pizza oven.

Source: I have a pizza oven. The whole point is that it gets really, really hot in order to cook a pizza in under a minute, which also incidentally makes the crust delicous. Not that Costco food court pizza has a crust. It's more like a focaccia bread with toppings, which is fine for its purpose and delicious in its own right for what it is and price point.

If you tried to cook a Costco pizza in an actual pizza oven, it wouldn't work. The temperatures would burn it WELL before you finished cooking the giant piece of dough.

The food court pizza is miraculous for the calorie/dollar ratio, and for that it can be praised. Let's not go insane and start acting like it's good pizza.
