I apologize if this has been covered already but without doubt way way better than anything even in the food court or the hot dogs that you all worship the best deal at Costco is the ginormous pumpkin pie that is six bucks.
I am getting three tomorrow and did you know that you can slice it up and put pieces in the freezer and pull them out and leave them on the counter for a couple hours and they're still wonderful!!!!!

They don't get like watery or separate or weird or anything.

I think it's just great and the crust is so light never like soggy so you have a lovely Costco or some are lovely and some aren't or something as far as the pumpkin pies are concerned.
However, absolutely I don't like my pumpkin pie all spicy with a ton of those warm spices no no no so I can see where those that do would find it bland.

What my whole family really enjoys are those tamales you can get, there's like three flavors but we just like the cheese ones. They're only available sometimes and they're wrapped in a corn husk and they microwave up in 2 minutes wonderfully. It's like a frozen bag of 18 for like 20 bucks maybe?

SO BAD

My mom bought a pretty big chest freezer from Costco like 5 years ago for $200 I think on sale. She kept it in her garage next to the always open entryway door in Southern California. It worked perfectly all that time till she finally upgraded to an upright.

Such a fantastic purchase because you can stock up on stuff when it's on sale.

Triggered! The “no bananas in the fridge” thing is nonsense from like 1960s Chiquita commercials. I have stored bananas in the fridge for years. The peel darkens a lot faster than normal, but it dramatically slows the ripening of the fruit itself. You can really freak people out with these nearly black bananas where the inside is perfectly fine.

This is an amazing coincidence I've been pretty unhappy with the flavor of the coffee beans from Costco. And the seeming caffeine content too. I have a grinder. I looked at that thread just yesterday and I don't know jack poo poo about coffee beans but I thought about trying to order from them what I like (and it's all I like from there so don't diss me)

Side note to my goon friends

Even though it's a pain in the rear end cilantro is one of the most important edible plants to not skip washing if you don't grow it yourself.
Cilantro and romaine

I love cilantro and if you give it a thorough rinsing and then put it in a glass of water in the fridge stems down and loosely cover it with an open baggie on it it will keep for about 5 days. From that glass you can just rip off handfuls and add fresh cilantro to everything. Then it's no longer a pain in the rear end at all :)

Okay here's another one trust me. Keep your receipts just pick a place get in the habit. If something goes on sale within 30 days of you buying it at a regular price you can go in and they'll just hand you the difference in cash or credit to Costco purchases. There's nothing wrong with doing this they do it for everyone.

Also take a look at Costco warranties sometimes they extend past regular warranties for electronic goods and that might make the difference on where you buy something. Other goons are going to know more about this than me.
