anyone tried the kirkland craft beer variety pack?

first time I've ever seen it today and almost picked it up but still a little gunshy after kirkland light beer.

I like the Costco craft beer, and I'm the type of person who goes to beer festivals multiple times a year. Praise Costco

What's y'all's favorite premade deli meal from Costco? I like the pre-portioned salmon with the basil pesto butter a lot. I'm trying a new one tonight: the enchiladas.

There's a really good new snack that I just picked up: a big bag of toasted coconut clusters with seeds and honey. I also picked up some Tillamook mint ice cream sandwiches and the new kirkland little round cheeses.

Worst new drinker advice of all time dude, I mean seriously you are batting .000 on this one

If you are anywhere near newly into scotch, avoid these at all costs

I wasn't advising a new drinker, just stating what I like. Also apparently while not knowing how ardbeg is spelled

You don't have to be like A SCOTCH EXPERT who worked his way up from Johnny Walker through the Glen whatever's to like peaty scotch, Laphroaig was one of the first scotches I ever tried and I loved it but I'd been drinking smoky beers for years

Yeah, my first exposure to scotch was a tasting, and I liked the peaty ones best right off the bat. I should probably have posted the disclaimer that you have to like drinking campfire smoke though

That's nothing. My friend's dad is in the wine biz and we were staying at his house one week and someone had shipped a bone-in $1400 jamon iberico to the house as a business promotion. We (12 guys in our late 20's) absolutely loving devoured that ham. It's far and away the most delicious meat I've ever had in my life.

exactly, salting meat is normal.
calling it “dry brining” simply indicates you’re a twat.

Why would you need a receipt? The purchase is tied to your membership.

Even if you didn't purchase it, if they sell it you can get money back. I got a gift of BOTW for Christmas, already owned it, and the giver didn't provide a receipt. Costco took it and gave me a gift card reimbursement.

What's the best version of Bitchin Sauce? Only one I've tried so far is the chipotle which is great, but I saw there are like 6 other varieties now.

Where is this stocked in the store? I've looked a few times, but I don't know if it's by the hummus, with the non perishable condiments, or what

I can only make it to service once a month now in These Trying Times, I’ve got a list but what am I missing? Going for a bunch of basics, but not sure of what kind of jerky (I love the pork but it’s too sweet, I prefer my jerky as dry as possible)or what kind of microwave/frozen snacks will help the most. Also any arguments for talking my husband into smoked salmon would be helpful; he didn’t believe me when I told him I’d kill a flat of blackberries in an afternoon, so please help him believe in my happiness. Is there any good loaf bread by the bakery?
E: we also need a sweet snack, I will kill or be killed if the only kind of sugar we eat is what I make the next couple months.

Currently living on PB pretzels, send help.

2e: this is the Costco on Clybourn in Chicago; haven’t been there yet this month but will provide an update on supplies and staffing, scout’s honor.

3E, got us baptized at the end of December and the Roni has enforced my good decision ever since.

I like the packs of bread that are shelf stable and can be baked when wanted, they'll last months on the counter and are almost as good as fresh baked bread.

For a healthy snack, I always keep a bag of those streamable individual edamame bags in my freezer, so good. For sweet stuff, there's a lot to choose from? Get the muffins and freeze the ones you're not eating right away?

My Costco (Washington) brought samples back! All items in single packages: nutella crepes, gogurt, and chocolate covered cherries. All staff in these little plastic pods. I know samples are controversial but it did make my little heart flutter.

The chocolate covered cherries are my favorite! Now if they would also bring back the wasabi covered almonds...
