The best summer rosé is $11 at Costco versus like $25 at Kroger. Don't let the gimmicky bottle fool you from how excellent this wine is for getting rekt in a hammock.

Sometimes organic stuff does taste better but it's usually because of some other factor (like organic beef and dairy coming from grass fed cows, it's because they're grass fed not because the grass was fertilized with their poo poo instead of factory fertilizer).

What would you guys recommend in terms of meaty, potatoey (aka on brand Middle Earth) snacks? I am definitely getting sausages and maybe potato skins with cheese (hell yeah). I am going to ask the butcher if they sell cow femurs too, for bone marrow (loving yum my dudes).

Get the mini naan packs for use as edible bready plates and to absorb the delicious meat juices.

What's the price on a bottle of liquor at costco?

VA doesn't have liquor in supermarkets, gotta go to the ABC. ABC stores don't seem expensive but it's hard to judge since they're state owned and there's no competition.

VA's pricing is pretty decent (as a transplant from a normal liquor store state). You can drive to Kentucky if the mood strikes you I guess.

Chocolate twist? Yeah, that never happened welcome to the new reality where Costco serves a $5 bowl of bullshit berries.

Acai Berry Bowl replaces chocolate in the machine.

Acai Berry Bowl is five loving dollars

It's full of loving strawberries, almonds, bananas and acai fruit. Like, go ahead and line up all the poo poo I hate all in one loving product to replace my single favorite thing on the menu

I didn't even think to look for allergy meds there until last week, when pollen season was nearly done, and combined for the Kirkland Claritin and Zyrtec for 365 tablets each it cost me less than getting a month of the Zyrtec at Walmart.

I know there's variance by region but the Gerard Bertrand Cote des Roses rose wine is $11 right now at church. It's amazing and generally retails $17-25.

I got an acai bowl and it was good, but the woman at the register basically tried to talk me out of it. "We have the strawberry sundae again!" "No, I want the acai bowl." "50/50 with vanilla?" "...no, just acai."

I don't like the texture compared to froyo it's not creamy and smooth

I can see where that'd be jarring if you didn't know what to expect. Acai bowls are more like a smoothie texture. Had one for lunch when I grabbed my $14.99 sherpas.

anyone got costco red wine recommendations? cabernet sauvignon, zinfandel, pinot noir, that sort of thing. or bordeaux blends whatever. i'm on a red wine kick lately

Sometimes you can get the Ruffino Ducale Chianti Classico Riserva at the Co for like $12 (normally closer to $20-24 in a regular shop) and it is hella good.

You can also get some capicola from time to time in the cured meats packs and have a hell of a weekend.

You're better off heading into a 7-eleven and stumbling into their wine rack, then dropping to the floor and lapping up what you can before you get thrown out. Tastes about the same as these garbage wines.

Apothics generally rate in the mid-high 80s, which is perfectly serviceable for a $8-12 bottle. Not everyone's going home to crush Silver Oak every night.

I get pretty irritated with the DirectTV guys asking me every time I come to shop “Hey you want to hear what we got going on today?” You’re trying to sling cable that’s what you got going on, be upfront about it. Someone runs into them the first time they may think they’re gonna talk about something Costco has going on. Nope it’s just a cold approach trying to sale cable. They need to say “Can we talk to you about what DirectTV is offering?”

I think worse than this is the occasional as seen on TV-esque salespeople with a speaker doing demonstrations and "free giveaways" (of travel/sample size items) for poo poo like $60 bottles of hand lotion, because a crowd of assholes 45 deep will block and entire main aisle way for the chance at a .25 ounce sample of mushroom paste mixed with jergens.

They are like $15, sherpa on one side, fleece on the other (they had a couple of plain colors and a couple patterns when I got mine). I have a tan one and a white-gray plaid one. They are packaged with like, crossed ribbons and the product card.

It is late in the sherpa season - they may be sold out. Best of luck to you, Goon.

Side note: if you ever make basmati rice at home, I've found adding like a teaspoon of cumin seeds to at the start is really amazing and adds a nice aromatic to rice.

I do a big pinch of fennel, a small pinch of cinnamon, and a teeeeeny pinch of clove browned in 1 tbsp butter before throwing in the rice and water.

Fennel is pretty polarizing though so YMMV

Ooh yeah i havent considered that, I do love fennel. are you talking like whole clove browned or ground cloves?

i actually add a teaspoon of fennel seeds when making homemade pizza sauce, i'ts a nice touch.

Ground clove, but you could probably put in a whole one during the simmer and then pull it out cooking the rice.
