Costco
« on: October 09, 2012, 03:39:23 PM »
I am a Costco addict. So are a few of you.. Let's share the Costco love on this thread  8)
Special items I bought this week are:
1. Starbucks hot chocolate. Not super sweet like Nestlé, and richer taste. Seasonal item.
2. Chateau Dollhouse. After years and years of dreaming that I will build a custom dollhouse, finally gave up, and bought this. Spent an hour last evening, an hour more today should do it. Comes with an elevator and will make a pretty bookcase for the kids room once they are done playing.

Share your 'special/ seasonal' Costco finds..

I like the rotisserie chicken there, the protein bars and the bottled water.

I just picked up some Samuel Adams Autumn Beer.  Haven't had any yet but probably will soon.  :P

The chicken salad from the deli section is awesome - spread some on a couple of slices of orowheat potato bread, sprinkle a lot of crushed pepper with some doritos - that is a tasty dinner right there.

Was that from a demo qwerty?  Sounds good, learned a lot of "combos" from the demo people.

@Homer

Let me know how that Sam Adams taste... kinda of a splurge for me to get a whole case and not usually fond of "Autumn beers"  Are they like Oktoberfest style beers?  One of the few things you can't return at Costco.

You should take your business to the Kwik-E Mart instead.
