Complimentary Costco

Last weekend I had a Costco trip for the books. Just listen to the free samples they were offering around lunchtime, and the number of times I visited that booth:
  • Red velvet cheesecake (2x)
  • Banana nut bread
  • Butter loaf cake
  • Salmon on crackers (2x)
  • Brie cheese on crackers (2x)
  • Lobster dip on crackers
  • Chicken and bean burritos
  • Vitamin water (3x)
  • Kettle corn popcorn
  • Veggie meatballs (2x)
  • Spicy BBQ chicken wings (2x)
  • Anjou pears (2x)
  • French onion soup
  • Clam chowder
  • Coffee (0x)
  • Cheesy Rice soup
Honest to goodness I walked into the store hungry and left full. I almost felt like I should leave a tip at the door or something. The service was spectacular and I would recommend it to anyone. In addition to the mind blowing meal I was served I also got to try out a 3-D television. Perhaps the only thing greater than Costco in this world is the Indian Ocean. I just love that salty body... of water. Speaking of salty water, did you know that I am really tired? They didn't have any energy drinks for sample at Costco, but that didn't bother me because I don't drink them anyway. I don't like to associate with red bulls and since I have a rock star for a roommate I don't need to look any further than my own fridge for energy. I think maybe there was something weird in that French onion soup. Like rusty paper or burnt wire ends.

Samples save me (well, Matilda) at Costco, especially when they have something like cake. Brie samples are some of our favorites, too. And the 3-D television is pretty amazing. I was skeptical at first, but I would totally buy one if I magically had money.

I think the red velvet cheesecake would have made me happy by itself, but that feast sounds like bliss! I try to plan my Costco trips around sample time, even if it means the traffic in there will make me a little claustrophobic :)
