I'm not that much a fan of the costco jug of hummus. And the spinach artichoke dip is so-so . Bitchin Sauce is forever highly recommended to everyone who hasn't tried it yet.

This was a long time ago but I was young and still tried to cook that fucker with the oven partially open.

It did not go well.

Why didn't you just cut it in half? Too dazzled by that massive pie?

Maybe not as exciting as pizza, but kudos to those who recommended roasting the Normandy vegetables. I stuck them in the oven with salt/pepper/olive oil at 500 degrees until they got nice and caramelized, then just stood over the pan picking out out and eating pieces of nice browned cauliflower/carrot/broccoli.

The giant Sabra roasted pine nut hummus? I like it but I always get sick of it before it runs out.

I donít think we have Bitchin Sauce at our CostCo but there was some kind of cashew spread. It might have been Sabra too?

Just so we're clear, hummus is absolutely not comparable to bitchin sauce, the latter is far worse for you. Which is fine, just don't get into it thinking it's hummus.

In that thereís an insufficient amount to produce a good density when thoroughly mixed-in, or because you just eat the stuff off the top like some sort of goddamn animal?

home made beats store bought any day and is really easy to make (if you have a food processor) once you figure out your preferred ratio of tahini to chickpeas. I find that a fixed ratio never really works and it always needs a bi of tweaking to taste, but you can figure out a rough guideline after a few tries. You can also use, uhh, fava beans insetad of chickpeas? I like chickpeas.

How Canberra's Costco can afford to undercut the competition

It's the petrol station with prices so low its nearest competitor drops theirs every morning when it opens.

But the head of Costco's Australian operations says their ability to offer such cheap fuel in Canberra comes back to their members.

Analysis from the NRMA showed the average unleaded price in Canberra was 8.1 cents per litre dearer than Sydney last financial year - though the average operating costs and margins accounted for 19.4 per cent of Canberra's average unleaded fuel price, compared to 15 per cent in Sydney.

However, unleaded fuel cost 131.7 cents at Costco's Majura fuel station on Wednesday - about four cents lower than the next cheapest petrol in Canberra.

Costco Wholesale Australia managing director Patrick Noone said the bulk discount retailer's strategy was to drive high sales with the lowest margins they could, with margins that "generally don't go above 12 to 14 per cent". Their Canberra station ranks in their top three for petrol sales in Australia and more pumps will soon be built to keep up with demand.

"The more sales we drive, the more value we drive into members pockets, which means when the time comes to renew your membership you've got value from your membership," Mr Noone said.

"That's our core strategy on everything we do - on the hotdog at the food court to the hearing aids to the champagne."

Costco also saves by buying only three grades of fuel in higher quantities to "maximise our buying potential and maximise value", and by having customers pay at the pump for their fuel, Mr Noone said.

But the $60 membership also helps to subsidise Costco's wafer-thin margins.

"The membership income helps us with our profit and loss for the whole company, it's a very important part of our business," Mr Noone said.

Mr Noone was speaking at an ACT parliamentary inquiry into Canberra's historically high fuel prices.

The NRMA's senior policy manager Carlita Warren said Canberra's fuel could sometimes be up to 30 cents more expensive than other capital cities.

The company said the ACT should introduce real-time fuel monitoring, but also prioritise independent retailers when approving fuel stations near current or future land developments.

However Caltex's head of retail fuel strategy and pricing Prasad Kholkute told the committee 85 per cent of fuel prices came down to the strength of the US and Australian dollar and government taxes.

He said Caltex's 20 ACT stations operated as competitively as they would in any other market but planning restrictions meant Canberra had a lower number of petrol stations per capita than Sydney or Melbourne - 7500 versus 5500.

"We welcome competition and we welcome price transparency," Mr Kholkute said.

"Different businesses have different business models [but] we believe in our product."

It was some other brand of hummus. I can't say forsure what it was but it wasn't Sabras. Atleast at my local Costco. Maybe I didn't look hard enough.

That's pretty good. I would recommend to anyone if you get these get a size bigger or get a long size if you can. That way any overhead exercises doesn't make your shirt come up over your stomach.

The only thing on sample today was a not very good veggie burger. Not a "vegetarian burger," like a tasty bean burger, it was a burger of like shredded vegetable scraps.

OTOH, the place was loving empty because of the massive snowstorm (e: 10" so far) and high winds, so that was a win. Food court was a freaking zoo because it was noon though. Found a table and enjoyed a brat anyway.

Thanks! I'm interested if so, i think the Kirkland uses sunflower oil instead of palm oil, which is preferable to me both ethically and because my wife is allergic to coconut and coconut products. So far the only nutella-ish product I've found that doesn't use palm oil is some poo poo from Lindt that costs way too much to buy on any regular basis.

Every time I'm on Kauai I fill up there, along with every single other goddamn person on the island.

Still worth it though, since I can just drink a jug of pog while I'm waiting in line.
