Onions are pictured yet I saw none when I went to the new one in Waterloo. I was not happy.

at mine they started keeping onions and kraut beside the register in little pre measured cups with lids. guess too many people were sneezing in the condiment bins or something.

they also stopped selling the smoked meat sandwich last year and the baked turkey and provolone sandwich just doesn't fill it's place

They def still have the smoked meat here in Toronto. I can't confirm but I think they use the Schwartz's stuff that you can buy in-store, which is legit, OG smoked meat.

We should all post pics of our various localized food court menus and add it to the OP.

they still sell the Dunn's smoked meat pouches here, just don't sell sandwiches made with them at the food court, honestly they were great but a little weird because they made them with these triangular ciabatta buns.

i quite like the turkey provolone baked sandwich, although it's salty as heck and big enough for two people

looking forward to hitting the maui Costco when we're there in January, Costco poke ftw

How did they even know how much you paid for it?

I actually had no idea I'd had it for so long and felt kind of bad because it took the manager about 5 minutes of searching to find the record of purchase. When she said I bought it in 2012 I was like, oh sorry, is that too long ago? "Nope here's a cash card for the original purchase amount"

Sitting in $282 on my Costco Credit Card right now and it's not cashing out until February! Kinda just wish I could get it sent whenever, though.

Cut an onion in half and take out a bit of the middle. Put chicken bullion and some butter in the space. Wrap in foil and bake at 400 for a while (maybe 40m).

Cool. Now throw that poo poo away.

Again, what are y'all buying that's been mechanically tenderized? I've bought thousands of dollars of Costco meat and never ever seen that on the label.

Look closely at the bottom of the label next time.

When I went to Hawaii with my family, we went to Costco for lunch on the first day, we sat at the tables. I was very aggravated, because we were in loving Hawaii and eating Costco pizza.

Costco is always our first stop in Hawaii. Stay in a place with a kitchen and load up on poke and booze to stock it.

The costco CC in Canada is a Mastercard for some reason and I never use it because their website/app for checking statements is so terrible I hate it.

Website seems fine to me and offers free credit score checks. We use it for everything and just got our cashback cheque for $938 Canadian dollars :getin:

I’ve never seen this one, I’m in the Vancouver BC area and coffee selection seems pretty localized. Will keep an eye out though! Definitely prefer a medium roast.

I’m enough of a coffee snob to have preferences on where the beans are from with central america being my fav (and hawaii but I rarely get kona because $$). At least from the local good roasters anyway.

They carry this amazing Ethiopian in my local store that we go through pounds of monthly but maybe that's just a Victoria thing because it's a local company. When we go to Maui we always pick up some of the 100% Kona too.

Artichoke dip, peanut butter pretzel bites, a few pounds of pork belly and a Marmot down jacket, among other things today. Gonna get fat(ter) this winter.

A good autumn feeling is waking up early before the wife for work and going to the cold living room with my Costco Ethiopian coffee and laying on the couch on top of a couple of Kirkland sheepskins underneath an Kirkland Sherpa while I read the news and wake up. Truly blessed levels of coziness.

Minor menu change, they've added a chicken salad sandwich . I think I'll pass

I was really disappointed in that cheese from years past. I threw most of it out.

I'll have to report back, but I'm sure i can use them for cooking if they're not amazing by themselves.

Stroopwaffels and weed are a dangerous combination, friends.


We keep a jar of the Kirkland pesto on hand at all times and have a bunch of frozen pesto cubes in the freezer to dress up our 3 year old's Costco spaghetti, Normandy blend and various Costco stuffed pastas. It's good for lazy dinners too, or mixed in with tomato sauce.

The tubs of Tre Stella boccocini are also very good from Costco.

In Victoria they only have the mini-mini bocconcini, which im not a fan of. Too small to get that nice pull apart texture.

It's pretty good, more like a soft doughy style then the old take and bake crust which was... weird

Does it still come with 4lbs of pepperoni on it?

It's a single layer of pepperoni that completely covers the pie. I liked it but my wife took off about half to make it more like a normal level of pepperoni.

Not in real fermented sauerkraut, I doubt the stuff in the food court is that though.

Idk, cabbage + salt is probably on par with cabbage + white vinegar pricewise. :shrug:

Obviously, fermenting sauerkraut takes time though, I've got a big mason jar of purple kraut in the fridge and more doing it's thing in a crock on the counter. I'm curious how commercial type kraut is made now.

CostCo has a fancier sauerkraut that I think is quite good, Wild Brine or something like that? Comes in a big square container with a green label. Crunchy and tangy.

The limp and faded cheap sauerkraut is horrible.

I had a jar of that and used the dregs to kickstart my own kraut, it was really good

How is the Costco Ethiopian coffee? How quickly do you go through it? Do you notice it getting old before you go through all of it?

I get a local fair trade one in two pound bags of whole beans, keep them in an airtight jar. I haven't noticed any bitterness but we drink a lot of coffee. I really like it, very smooth and sweet
