The “fiesta packs” of coke were what we get here, mix of mexican coke/sprite/orange fanta, they rule.

do you remember when Costco sold 24pks of Mexican Coca-colas for like $20 buckos? Those were the days. :smith:

They still do at my store, although it might not be $20 I haven't checked the prices.

Had a taste of this the other day and it was great. I thought the same thing while eating it with a little eggplant parm, so you must be onto something. Very fluffy with an herb crust. Also, like most things at Costco, a great value for what you pay. I think 2 loaves were $6.

The cauliflower rice lemon chicken piccata is also very good if you want something a little healthier. Lots of chicken, little cauliflower rice, you end up with a very good balance that is surprisingly low carb. I wouldn't microwave though. I prefer the oven baked cooking method.

It was years ago, around 2008 or something. Before the whole, "HIGH FRUCTOSE IS BAD! But these Mexicans sodas still use cane sugar!? Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat" hype train. Any soda made outside the U.S is 10 times better than anything we manage to produce...even if theyre the same soda ( i.e coke )

Topo Chico is prob the best carbonated water also, especially for makin Italian cream sodas :discourse:

They sell it here in the summer sometimes, but now they are half-liter bottles. If you’re not paying attention and buying them for a cookout to hand to little kids, it becomes a problem because all that caffeine and sugar makes their little minds explode.

I would agree, but it drives the market prices up. :colbert:

If you're payin more than $1.50 for 1 bottle of Mex Coca Cola you're getting ripped off.

(I would argue if you're paying more than a $1 you're getting ripped off too)

I just picked up a 24-pack of the normal 11oz bottles last week. I would guess it depends on your store/region.

(there is definite variation between stores even in the same region! the suburban store here doesn't carry chest freezers (wat, how would that not be a major seller to the hockey mom crowd) and when I went into the one in town they also had big jars of kimchi that I definitely haven't seen at the suburban store either.)

I agree with you 100%. A cold, unflavored carbonated water is absolutely delicious and refreshing.
Yeah this, and the best part is, it doesn't even have to be cold to be really refreshing. even room temp it's real good. I used to not be a fan but think I really learned to love unflavored carbonated water back in college where I did a study-broad in Rome for the summer at an ye olde kinda cool but lovely apartment without a real fridge and even after taking a shower you'd just start sweating immediately as soon as you stepped out. so i'd just walk down to a local carrefour store and buying pallet of 2L bottles of sparkling water and just start chugging constantly all-day long and drat it was good.

i generally find most flavoring in sparkling water gross (there's something especially nasty about flavorings typically used in grocery-store brands, at least pre-2015), but waterloo and spindrift are pretty great and some la croix are decent. not worth the premium mark-up over buying a flat of crystal geyser or something, but tasty enough that either or is fine.

tonic water is the stupidest poo poo unless its in a cocktail, its just as unhealthy as a soda but tastes gross.

Whenever we take a trip to Mexico, we buy a big bottle of vanilla down there. For the price, you get real vanilla and not just vanilla flavoring for pretty cheap. The real stuff in the states is real, but also significantly more expensive.

Made the best wings I’ve ever made in my life by dumping some fridge cold chopped wings into a bowl with a dash of olive oil and random spices into the goddamn airfryer. The family loved them to and elevated them to the status of “birthday food” with a day and date request. My first ever batch. Amazing technology. I can feel years of cooking technique knowledge leaving my body, and I am glad of it.

Does anyone know if Costco still carries the 12oz cans of cold brew coffee? I’m down to my last 6 and my local store hasn’t had them the last couple trips I’ve been. I’m hoping it wasn’t a one time thing or just seasonal. It’s gone from their website as well. It wasn’t the best cold brew I’ve ever had but it worked out great for my morning ice coffee and was economical.

we always have some costco four cheese in the fridge. The only other frozen pizza I think is good is the target 'archer farms' brand, which is nice and thin.

I had to stop getting the streusel muffins because they were making me more fatter faster. Not that I’ve slowed down since then. Went to church today. Y’all need those frozen tempura shrimp in your lives.

If you don't mind some extra calories, sprinkle some brewer's yeast on top of the four cheese pizzas before baking. It's amazing.

We didn't like the KS Breadcrumb crust cheese. Through the crust was way too dry.

We do love the KS thin crust pepperoni pizzas. And holy hell they put a lot of pepperoni on there.
