So, those pretzel rolls... Has anyone seen them?

Not me and I was there last week but I never buy pretzel rolls so wasn't looking for them. Sorry about that.

Pretzel rolls? My local Emart carries frozen "Kim & Scott's Gourmet Stuffed Pretzels," cheddar cheese or pizza-flavored. Natural ingredients, lacto-ovo vegetarian-friendly, & an easy tasty snack. Or maybe you meant something different.

Of course, like every interesting import here, they'll just quietly disappear forever from the shelves one day.

I've never set foot in a Costco, having never lived near one. A store is a store I figure, just a place you buy stuff. On the other hand I do feel qualms about chains & megastores gradually homogenizing communities everywhere.

A person asks twice, it seems only polite to answer.

Thanks, guys. I don't really like the Emart stuffed pretzels. If you see the Costco ones, I recommend them.

As for chains, Costco is well known for paying a decent living wage. I think it's $15 an hour in some areas, which is double minimum wage in the states.

Anyway, happy new year, to all but Goldfish.

We made it to Yanjae Costco earlier today. Didn't see any pretzel rolls. It was very crowded, especially in the food court for the pizza sale. Upstairs they were going gaga for the winter coats. Downstairs it was the rotisserie chicken and cheesecake that seemed to be flying off the shelves. Who wants to cook on Saturday, anyway?

Sales the week of Jan 13-19
Downy Fabric Softener, Listerine, Poppies cookies, Sweet Potato Chew, Harim frozen chicken nuggets, and 907 G Finlandia Sliced Musenster Cheese.

Thanks dairy!

I've noticed the chicken is catching on. It's tasty, healthier than fried and the price is right. The quarters are good too, but once they started selling they raised the price.

The quarters are also kind of dry and overcooked. Yes, the rotisserie chicken at Costco is a great deal for Korea with a full bird costing 6,990. Look around at other large stores, and chicken restaurants, and find a better deal.

If some Koreans want to whip up aside plate of onions n mustard, more power too em and I wouldn't laugh at them over that, but ladies who are piling garbage bags of that into their purses deserve a well aimed impact to soil their accessory.

Anyways, whatever happened to sojusucks to give us inane updates on grocery items? I notice also that ontheotherhand hasn't been giving the usual 'death updates' over at Current Events. What gives?

I'll try to post the future sales as long as I can make it to Costco. It's a shame that the usual nimrods can't just either say thanks or find another thread to flame.
