Costco portion sizes arenít that large. It should fit inside of any-sized passenger vehicle.

I think that's why they are so good. People like to say "well I just have water at home" but it's like a perfect flavor that can't really be replicated. The water is really clean and you get a slight taste of flavor, but nothing overpowering like many other flavored waters. Even if you were to make it at home, it would taste stronger. You'd have to do something like leave pineapple in empty bottles for a few days, drain them and then put really clean water into those bottles to even come close to replicating the taste.

I picked that Hint water up from a suggestion in here a while back and I don't like it. It's weird, the flavorings they add are great, but the water itself tastes like municipal city water out of my tap. I know water doesn't taste like much but you can absolutely tell the difference in types of water.

I've never had a bottled water that I didn't like the actual water before.

We have good tap water here in the bay area and I tried it. I'll second the flavoring was v good, but I also didn't think it was anything special at all, especially not for the price. If i'm going through the effort of buying bottled water, then I'm doing like crystal geyser or kirkland plain sparkling water since the plain carbonation just makes stuff taste a lot more refreshing and you can crack open a warm bottle of plain sparkling water on a hot day and it'll still be very nice. and it isn't something you can do at home easily

I think it was about $12+tax for a 15-pack @ 16 oz each, almost $1 for every pint of water.

The super premium ice cream is indeed the best, especially when you pour some Kirkland oraganic peanut butter over it.

Got the food court toys for my dog on Saturday, and a Kirkland soft shell men's jacket for $19.99.

The 'co is my shepherd; I shall not want.
It maketh me to walk by the electronics section: it leadeth me beside pallets of clothing.
It restoreth my refrigerator: it leadeth me on the path to ravioli lasagna for goons' sake.
Yea, though I walk through the aisles void of samples, I will fear no evil: for thine gold star membership card be with me; thine hot dogs and refillable sodas they comfort me.
Thou preparest a warehouse near me in the presence of thine big box competitors: thou anointest my receipt with highlighter; my shopping cart runneth over.
Surely bulk purchases and coupon mailers will follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell within a reasonable radius of a Costco location for ever.

I never get the last word, and it makes me very sad.


Can anyone confirm whether the Kirkland super premium vanilla ice cream is just rebranded Humboldt premium vanilla ice cream? I got the premium Humboldt stuff at Costco in NJ a long time ago for just a few months, but then they took it away and I've always suspected the Kirkland super premium was that rebranded, but I couldn't be sure and I didn't want 2 giant tubs of it if it didn't happen to be that lovely Humboldt stuff.

Anyone have any experience with the Lovesac that Costco sometimes has as a special event? It's back on until 9/13. I've been looking for a decent option for reading/lounging and they seem like a fun choice. I'm 6'4", do you think it will be comfortable for someone my height?

I'm 6'3" and we actually have a couple of them. Bought a gigantic one back in like 2003 or something, and got a slightly smaller one when we bought our couch through them earlier this year.

The giga-sac isn't in their catalog anymore. It's got a corduroy cover and can seat two adults who are intimately familiar with one another, or like 5 small children. It gets warm fast, due to the corduroy and I think the memory foam absorbing heat. It's not good for sleeping, as you settle over the hours and you wake up with your hip bone on the floor and covered in sweat. For lounging around fiddling with a phone or reading a book, it's great.

The other one is a CitySac. It has a faux-fur cover and springier foam. It doesn't get too warm somehow. I like to not so much sit on it as kind of sprawl across it while playing sudoku or whatever. My daughter is 5'4" and regularly spends a couple hours in it reading or playing video games.

So the one you have is what they call "theBigOne" on their website? The LoveSac website lists sizes in some marketing bullshit which makes it hard to determine which one corresponds on the Costco website. It looks like Costco is selling the 3 smallest sizes, with the biggest one only available on their website. I was gonna buy the large, which is 5' wide and 3.1" high. The only one bigger than that is the one not available anywhere but their website, which is 6' wide instead.

The cord one is TheBigOne or maybe bigger. Like I said, itís ancient. We must have picked it up 2001-2003.

The new one we have with faux fur is the CitySac. Itís big without being obnoxiously big. Itís oddly pleasant to pet and even a big person can sprawl across it in comfort. You wonít be curling up in the fetal position like itís a big furry nest or anything, but itís perfectly functional as a chair.

One warning: you slowly go from ďthis is nice, I could stay here all dayĒ to ďthis is nice, I canít get up without assistance. I suppose this is my life now.Ē Exiting a LoveSac is an exercise in humility. Nobody does it with grace.

Yea this is kind of my fear, so i'm gonna pass. I want a big rear end comfortable chair I can sink into, but I want to be able to get out of it and not get out of it 2 hours later with a sweaty back. I'm trying to find a perfect chair for reading and so far have had 0 luck. Was hoping the LoveSac would do it.
