They were selling 12-packs of tp when I went today, that's a lot less then the 36-packs I always see. Also got some keto chocolate and caramel frozen lollipops. Avoid.

monkey business isn't profitable without monkey slavery

My wife told me about some place that trained some sort of ape/monkey to collect some fruit or whatever and i remember saying, "yo thats cool as hell"

I think the implication was that the monkeys were being forced to do so...

So it may not have actually been "cool as hell"

Costco realchat: now that I have committed to buying shrimp chips I no longer see shrimp chips. I swear that the local store is messing with me.

Same with that giant bag of frozen breakfast sausage patties. Yum yum, Dk needs some, and its discontinued. 1000 units at stores A and B nearby, discontinued at my location.

I have apparently angered the stocking gods.

I've personally never done it, but many people say Costco actually takes submissions to the suggestion box seriously so try letting them know?

I bought one of those huge tins of extra crunchy roasted salted peanuts, and finished the thing in five days. I thought eating them with chopsticks would be a good way to moderate my consumption as well as keep my hands from getting all salty, but it just meant I literally didn't stop eating peanut after peanut and now they're gone. I added around 6500 calories to my diet this week in peanuts alone.

Never again.

Tips for not inhaling roasted nuts (I have the same problem):
* Buy unsalted ones. Theyre far less addictive. I have a CostCo bag of roasted unsalted hazelnuts which Im vaguely responsible about eating. If they were salted it would be gone in two days.
* Get peanuts in the shells which will slow you down... a little. Sadly Ive never seen this at CostCo.

I worked at Five Guys for a couple years and would bring massive bags of in-shell peanuts home with me. Once you get the muscle memory down, it's just as fast cracking them open and tossing them into your mouth as it is just scooping the shelled ones into your mouth from your hand. It's a sickness, I swear.

If you need a little fiber in your gut, don't shell them first. One or two peanuts IN SHELL still taste like peanuts, and will clean you right out.

Get pistachios in the shell and revel in your high finger strength and callouses from all that shelling. Never, ever, EVER get the shelled, salted, roasted pistachios. Just... make pretend they don't exist. Costco should ditch all the pretensions and sell them in a feedbag you can strap directly to your face.

Roasted and salted pistachios sold outside of their shell are weirdly gummy/chewy in a way that roasted and salted pistachios sold within their shells aren't.

Why yes, I'm fuzzy on the "which one is shelled" issue, why do you ask?

Pistachios are so drat good, and the only thing that holds me back from buying more is how incredibly awful the family that control them is.

They were out of the good TP today and just had the see through stuff that you would expect to find in a gas station bathroom. Did get some of those hot chocolate bombs, hoping they taste as good as they look. It's nice that they are made with chocolate instead of just cocoa powder, looking forward to some churros dipped in them.

Its most effective to train animals with a pure reward clicker training setup, so if they were doing it competently the monkeys would be treated fairly well.

If they had a bunch of assholes who were trying to powertrip tho who knows
