      I’m not knocking Costco. I go there once a week and get some great deals on fresh locally caught fish, cheeses, wine.  But as I go through the store I see people crowding around the sample tables, sometimes making 2 rounds and quite frankly, a lot of people shopping at my local Costco are pretty fat. Last saturday there was a family grazing like nobody’s business. They were all big, even the young children. It makes me wonder if all the bulk food we buy just encourages us to eat more because it’s there. What do you think?

        • Down to the individual family....We buy from Costco all the time.  My husband divides food and vacumn packs them and freezes.

        • We must have been at the same Costco Cynthia. I saw the exact same family. And I’m not kidding. frown I do believe however, that it’s more about the kinds of choices we are making and not necessarily the bulk of something. For example, when we were there, they were handing out samples of a chicken enchilada casserole and while it tasted good, when I read the label, there were so many ingredients on there that I could not even pronounce...and if I can’t pronounce it...I’m not buying it. I know it is loaded with preservatives and all sorts of nutrition deficiency, not good for your body ingredients. It is one of the reasons, I mainly just pick up necessities, like paper towels, toilet paper, frozen vegetables, etc.

        • Rose LOL. Maybe they graze their way across the country visiting Costcos along the way. And on those ingredients, I heard someone say once that if your grandmother doesn’t know what it is, you probably don’t want to eat it.
