Toujours Mike's pizza SUPERSTAR pizza trip report.

Two for 17.99 CDN


After 17 minutes at 450 on the bottom rack of a gas oven atop the Toujours Mike's cooking sheet:


It was tasty and is very large by traditional frozen pizza standards. The mushrooms were a powerful flavour in the SUPERSTAR experience. Cheese was bountiful and very stretchy. I will probably buy this again when I want an upmarket frozen pie and not my usuals or the $2.50 per pie No Name bulk pep pizza.

Needless crust shot to see how the Toujours Mike's sheet did.


And no I don't ever use timg links thank you.

Same here. No sight of it over the past month. I checked their "Where to buy" page and the second closest location (right down the road from Costco) went out of business last year. I guess I'm done for.

I should stress that the pesto itself isn't bad but if you have some real pesto and then decide you want some more when you get home and remember you have some Costco pesto and have some you'll be unhappy.

I like it well enough. It's not going to come close to smashing your own basil and pine nuts and otherwise in a mortar of course, but for a pretty good meal that takes nothing more than boiling some pasta it's real nice.

Went to the pharmacy to get my refill of meds-cheaper with Costco prices and the GoodRX coupon (which they apply automatically) than with my poo poo insurance.
Got pesto and a rotisserie- gonna have a pasta feast.
Got the Kirkland brand aged rum for $14- a LOT of vanillin in there, but with soda and hibiscus syrup I am perfectly happy.
Got a mocha freeze (my first! I joined in the winter)- perfect pick me up while waiting for the bus.

PBUC, my brethren. PBUC.

E: forgot to add that for lunch, I had the AíSha ramen with some Normandy Blend and an egg (and more seasoning) thrown in. A Perfectly Blessed Membership day.

Food processor is a great middle ground but mortar and pestle is absolutely the best method to make pesto.

The sign said remodeling, back open August 3. By all means it looked like a regular food court kitchen with no reason to remodel, but perhaps a sign of a shift to fewer options.

Or an automated dog maker to speed it up?

How old is that location. They have to shut em down and remodel every half decade or decade to fix major equipment, replace flooring, fix any major malfunctions and the like. Most likely it had been scheduled for years and they might've moved up the time table to take advantage of slower food court sales.

Yes as of two weeks ago.

I also went to the brand new Business Center, and I see no need to drive to the RD ever again. Costco has the advantage when it comes to 55 gallon drums of olive oil.

Online still doesn't have the 4lb bags of Kirkland trail mix. There is a sale on metal prints so I got a 20x30 of a photo from my honeymoon and a 16x20 beach photo for my parents as a gift for about $140 which seems like a good price. PBUC.

Do you, or does anyone, know if they play the standard gently caress gently caress games with insurance, or will things just be cheaper there? Have a family member just diagnosed with diabetes and is looking at some painful expenses for supplies and insulin. Don't have a ton of experience with pharmacies other than the occasional painkiller and antibiotic, but from what I have seen prices appear to be largely made up when insurance is involved, I'm wondering if their retail prices are cheaper if their prices with insurance will also be cheaper.

Sorry to hear that. Insulin is indeed expensive as gently caress. Its worth it to see if you can get a discount on Goodrx like that other poster. Vials also tend to be slightly cheaper than the quick injection pens, so ask the doc to write prescriptions for those if you can. I use the vial when I eat carbs at home, just to save a little.

I think thereís something, legally, about their being a wholesaler that keeps their prices down, and that goes double with generics. If I was on the low level of insurance that I can afford, all name brand drugs, and was going to, like, CVS, I wouldíve paid anywhere between 150 and 700 dollars for the month on top of my premiums; the Ďco was $23 for all three meds, with coupons they just looked up for me.
Diabetes-wise, I have heard from a lot of people that their physical supplies (eg, needles/resting strips/testing units) are about as cheap as can be without ordering from a sketchy Chinese site, and the pharmacy is good at gaming the insurance code situation in the long run for chronic problems. Sorry about your family memberís problems! Hope they get better.
(Also you donít need a membership to go to the pharmacy, assuming youíre US! Honestly, I joined because (on the advice of this thread) I was already using the pharmacy and kept seeing things I wanted to buy on my way in)

I doubt you'll see much of a savings. If you have any prescription drug coverage at all your insurer will probably vacuum up any price difference, since you'll still be paying the same copays.

But what I found made a huge difference, was if they are in a government job or otherwise have lots of insurance choices, check every single plan's cost estimator for drugs, if you can, for both Novolog and Humalog (the big 2) - sometimes the site isn't good about telling you that the reason one medicine is $$$$ is because it's the non-formulary one, and the formulary is only $$.

I'm on my wife's insurance, who works for the feds, and we were bummed out because my insulin costs were going to be like $2k+ a year under all the big insurers. But one of the little random insurers that didn't sound like we were eligible (yes, everyone in the federal gov is eligible) had amazingly low co-pays for insulin, and just piggybacked on Cigna's doctor network, so never had an issue with doctor choice.
