It's also suuuuuper calorie dense so be careful with it. I go a bit against the thread grain here and don't like it that much. However, once I start eating it, I feel compelled to eat more and more and I can't stop.

It's dangerous stuff. Beware.

The cans of Kirkland cold brew appear to have disappeared over the last month or so, making mornings hard, Iíve been getting the 12 packs of Colombo coffee which is a good local product but doesnt quite have the buzz.

Looking at the Winix air purifier for $130. Seems like a great deal, is it worth it?

Truthiness!

My Bitchin Sauce actually lasted a pretty drat long time before succumbing to mold. I second the calorie density warning, but I was limited by how many veggies I had for dunking so it was never too bad. All that said, it was yummy but one tub was enough.

I might give that a shot. The blurb makes it sound interesting.

I think my issue with American gins is how junipery they are.

Try Aviation sometime if you havenít (itís extremely good despite the recent celebrity endorsement)

I guess it is a bit juniper forward but itís extremely mild/smooth (enough that it can easily be consumed neat)

Iíd agree rando American gin can often be a bit rough but itís frequently because itís one of the first offerings new craft distilleries put to market while they wait for their bourbon (or whatever) to age, but there are definitely good offerings for it there

It was just on sale for $99 last month. I picked up 2 of them and they seem to react to things like incense and stuff so I think they're pretty good. A few people have them in here. They're probably still good at $130.

Dear Costco Thread,

I can't believe it finally happened to me.



This is the first time I've seen Bitchin' Sauce in my area, I've been going to Costcos for like eight years now? Was actually at the one near my parents instead of my usual as I had some other errands in the area, we'll see if the one near me has it when I next go there.

Tried some once I got home, it's pretty good!

use it on sandwiches/bagels and thank me later

I agree, I got the chipotle stuff too and it wasn't that great. Maybe if you're a dip person it's good, but I'm not. I don't dip chips or stuff regularly. I had it with plain grilled chicken and rice, and ... I'd rather eat something else.

Weirdly the $99 one was online only and not in stock at my local 'Co. The $130 was in stock in the warehouse but doesn't have WiFi or the extra filters which seems a bit back asswards pricing wise.

Yeah the extra filters were a big selling point. They last you like a year or something. I don't use the wifi poo poo because I have 2 of them and I'm too lazy to set up both of them.

Yeah you can buy those air purifiers from Amazon or Winx directly for roughly the same price but the point of buying from Costco is that they comes with 2 years worth of filters instead of one.

The "Air Loom"

Matthews believed that a gang of criminals and spies skilled in pneumatic chemistry had taken up residence at London Wall in Moorfields (close to Bethlem) and were tormenting him by means of rays emitted by a machine called the "Air Loom" or gaseous charge generator. The torments induced by the rays included "Lobster-cracking", during which the circulation of the blood was prevented by a magnetic field; "Stomach-skinning" and "Apoplexy-working with the nutmeg grater" which involved the introduction of fluids into the skull. His persecutors bore such names as "the Middleman" (who operated the Air Loom), "the Glove Woman" and "Sir Archy" (who acted as "repeaters" or "active worriers" to enhance Matthews' torment or record the machine's activities) and their leader, a man called "Bill, or the King".

Matthews' delusions had a definite political slant: he claimed that the purpose of this gang was espionage, and that there were many other such gangs armed with Air Looms all over London, using "pneumatic practitioners" to "premagnetize" potential victims with "volatile magnetic fluid". According to Matthews, their chief targets (apart from himself) were leading government figures. By means of their "rays" they could influence ministers' thoughts and read their minds. Matthews declared that William Pitt was "not half" susceptible to these attacks[3] and held that these gangs were responsible for the British military disasters at Buenos Aires in 1807 and Walcheren in 1809 and also for the Nore Mutiny of 1797.

In 1814 Matthews was moved to "Fox's London House", a private asylum in Hackney, where he became a popular and trusted patient. His delusions appeared to have stopped. The asylum's owner, Dr. Fox, regarded him as sane. Matthews assisted with bookkeeping and gardening until his death on 10 January 1815

Yeah, I love them too. They have a real fragile temp range when they're perfect though, once they start to melt it just becomes this sickly sweet juice. You can throw it in the freezer to try to recover a little but if they actually start freezing they'll get all these ice crystals and lose the smoothie texture. Gotta gulp 'em.

The vat of berry compote they use to make them is like my forbidden onion dispenser.

I've got like five pounds of baby carrots and some chips so plenty of stuff to use up the bitchin' sauce with. Had a reasonable amount today, while it was good I don't feel compelled to eat half the tub in a sitting so that's good I guess!

I also found thin mints dark chocolate covered almonds which are pretty decent.

I have fine-as-a-baby's hair and it made me all fluffy and adorable. The one I bought on amazon burned out after a few months, but it got shipped rough so I don't think they're normally that fragile. I'm going to get a new one if I see 'em.

No seriously it made me poofy. Dolly Parton poofy. It was fabulous.

We have the Dyson Vsomething and have for a year, the kids fight over who gets to vacuum the kitchen when dinner is over. Itís good to tackle quick messes or just give areas a once over.

Got it on sale off the web site. Between friends we all have V8-V10 models and theyíve all seemed pretty good. Would recommend.

We have the Hoover Linx https://www.costco.com/hoover-linx-cordless-stick-vacuum.product.100601429.html and it's been pretty great. It's the 'budget' Wirecutter recommendation; they recommend the Dyson if you have the money.

They disappear frequently at my Costco. Recently, they were moved from the coffee aisle to the canned/bottled beverages isle. My SO loves them for their cold brew concoction along with the Cafe D'avita that appears once in a blue moon.

After around 2 years of Costco being a 1x monthly trip, my wife and I made the decision to start doing the majority of our food shopping there. I am not sure how people raise two young kids while both working full time jobs and not utilize Costco.

Also their pre made meals are awesome. A giant tray of Mac cheese for like 10 bucks is amazing. Also ground beef was super cheap and now we have 10 lbs of it

I throw them frozen italian meatballs in the air fryer for about 7-8 minutes at 400 °F, they come out crispy but juicy. Nice to throw on some pasta or in with cauliflower rice.
