Costco “get it while you can” update

The previously mentioned and awesome Marie Morin crème brûlée is back in stock at least at the Dimond Costco in Anchorage. And I did find out from the clerk that it is a new addition to this store, which I had thought; though, some stores in the lower 48 had this tremendous delight for years.

Ground bison has jumped up in price from $14.99 to $22.99. Yikes! I’m glad I stocked up while I could, but this really quite the price hike, just like that!

Got them while I could: Moose Creek cotton-flannel lined jeans – $18.99

I’ve been waiting for Costco to get more, but they just don’t seem to be. There are only about 1 dozen pairs left, and they’re all 40 and 42 waist sizes. I bought 5 while I could in autumn, and will probably wear these every day this winter and next. I just love them, not being a big fan of long underwear unless absolutely necessary.

I’m surprised they’re not getting more in stock, since it’s only November, but if I see more I’ll let you know. They’re made in Cambodia by the way, and they’re fairly loose fitting and run a tad short in length.

Hershey’s Extra Dark Chocolate Assortment

Thankfully, they dropped the probably almost-void-of-nutrition milk chocolate pieces, so I thought I’d try them again. But these seem to have less of the rich dark chocolate that the previous ones had, and they are just too sweet to be extraordinarily healthy.

They don’t taste like “Wow!” — more like “Yuck.” Maybe they’re not made with the more unrefined, true dark chocolate. Or worse, maybe they’re made with the new GMO chocolate. I hope not. See:Chocolate’s Getting Jacked: 70% of World’s Raw Chocolate Soon To Be Genetically Modified. Not recommended.

The current brand of frozen blueberries — blahsville

Not worth getting. The antioxidant capability can’t be much, because their flavor is really blah. They don’t have a strong chemical flavor (pesticides?) like a previous brand. The brand before the chemical tasting brand was excellent, though. That’s how things roll at Costco. A lot of it is up to the buyers and how low the sellers are willing to go.

Organic frozen kernel corn — good!

I recommend the frozen kernel corn they’ve had for awhile now — grown in Oregon, organic, and tasty! Don’t overcook (it’s already cooked) or you’ll spoil the good-for-you corn oil. Good with some freshly cracked pepper.

That’s all for now, except, by the way, don’t go through the naked body scanners. Why not is thoroughly explained in my posts on this subject at ToBeFree. Click on the Naked Body Scanners topic in the Categories pull-down menu.

Power to the peaceful!
