    Are you 65? Do you shop during the day and clog up the aisles with your cart while you wait in line to get the samples instead of paying for lunch?

    I love trying samples at Costco, I've found a few of my new grocery staples that way.

    The hotdog deal is still the best nitrate laced lunch you can find for $2.

    Nope, they didn't sell food at the ol' Ikea in Burnside.

    But, Ikea has hotdogs?? Swedish hotdogs?? They HAVE to be good!

    ...but how long do they take to assemble??

    I remember they did have a ball room though, I was young when it left.

    Dana and I discovered one day that they sold beer in Ikea, and the cafeteria didn't have a no alcohol beyond this point sign so we walked around with them.

    Hotdogs at Costco are not quite as good now. No more hot peppers. :(

    They absolutely did sell food at the Dartmouth ikea. The canteen was against the back wall next to the ball room.

    Hot peppers and sauerkraut are available in small carry-out containers on either side of the check out cash register.

    I saw that for onions and sauerkraut. Maybe they were just out of peppers when I was there.

    I prefer their sausages over the hotdogs.

    * Insert gay joke here *

    Sample time at Costco rocks! I bring disguises.

    I tried their "gourmet" potato salad for the first time last weekend, at a friend's BBQ. It was so good, I picked a container yesterday. It's only $6.99.

    "Costco Crack" aka Chicago Mix is really good, if you've never tried it before.

    We buy most of our meats from Costco. We picked up some great sirloin grilling steaks for a BBQ last night. We got four good sized steaks for ~ $28.00.

    Their stuffed salmon is to die for, but it's a little pricey.

    We buy a chicken pot pie every time we go.

    I really like their kale salads

    I have had those pre-cooked boxed ribs. They're great too. They go on sale every once and a while for $9.99.

    Costco has all kinds of good eats.
