I got a jamon last year. It was amazing, but ultimately too much meat to take and I was unprepared. It was also $50 the day after Christmas...

Too Costco? Don't be. Just hit them up at you local time off hours. Before people get off work and not days most people have off

Alternatively I took off work on a Thursday to go in the late morning and there was no parking and the place was incredibly packed with people unable to stay 6 ft away. I will not be going back.

I think Google maps lets you see an estimate for how busy stores are before you navigate to there. You can even get estimates for how busy it will be in the future as well.

It took me 6 weeks to eat the ham last year, and I took some to both Thanksgiving and Christmas. I also lost a bit to waste. Will be saving up for my future ham -

Yeah, friday was definitely a bit busier than normal when I went.
Also, both of the people in front of me in the checkout line tried to buy more than one pack of toilet paper lol. I guess people are worried about the BIDEN LOCKDOWN

I love that Costco employees enforce that. You get one. That's it.

A few months ago I was going to buy two of those 12 packs or whatever of tuna and they said it was limited to one so I just said sounds good!

Costco programmed that poo poo into their registers. The cashiers don't even have to worry about enforcing it because the registers won't let them ring up more than one. It's supposed to be a limit of one per membership per day, but the machine only recognizes the limit on a per transaction basis. So technically you could buy the stuff that has a limit, load it up in your car, then go back in and get more.

That's cool though. So if some rear end in a top hat starts throwing a hissy fit they can just say "It won't even let me ring it up dude."

I tried to go to the Covington one at open today. At 9:45 the parking lot was completely full and there was a three block line back to the main road to turn in. I said gently caress no and turned around.

That was probably put in because of their instacart partnership. The runners use their own (or instacart company?) credit cards/memberships to buy poo poo for people. My brother bitched about this incessantly because he could see from the receipt they paid less than what they charged him.

Pro move would be to have a second person with you, and split the order saying half was for them and get around the 1 per person limit.

edit: BUT WHY THE gently caress YOU WOULD NEED 60 ROLLS OF TOILET PAPER IS BEYOND COMPREHENSION

My Costco has had these for about a month or so. Can confirm they are indeed very good (and correspondingly dangerous if you don’t want to gain a lot of weight very quickly).

It's the Milkshake Factory on the label. I'm excited for gourmet whoppers, but not nearly as excited as I was for tiny gourmet ice cream balls.
