1) Are you also against the hot dog/drink deal and the pizza? 2) Would a square pizza make you happier?
3) Do you buy products produced by prisoners and child labor with tiny fingers in China?
Numbers added for clarity.
1) Yes -- unless that drink is "water" and not malted poison. And the hot dog simply isn't very good. I make my own. Sausage making is one of my favorite culinary tricks. Nothing like the snap of a real weiner in a real casing made with ingredients you sourced yourself. I also make my own jerky, corned beef, pastrami, smoked salmon and barbecue. All of that is in the same culinary ballpark. My way costs a little more and takes considerably more time. But the results are worth it.
2) No, a square pizza wouldn't make me happier. I like pizza made from 00 flour, fermented for at least a couple days, hand stretched and fired in a stone oven at 320c. The closer it tastes to pizza in Naples, the more I like it.
3) I don't buy many products at all. Mostly agricultural products. (For instance, my coffee pulper was made in Columbia and I bought it from a farmer who was getting out of the business. Most of what I buy is similarly used/upcycled. I don't like being part of the problem if I can avoid it. The last new thing I purchased was a Chevy work truck because it made the most sense for tax purposes.)
There is plenty of great food to be had at Costco. But none of it is frozen pre-cooked (like the cases of corn dogs and similar) or found at the food court. Do you think the CEOs of Costco, or Darden Group, or Yum! Foods eat their own products?
