Some of My Favorites

Here are some of my favorite random treats. Feel free to post about yours too! I'd love to read about them.

From Costco:

-Great smoked salmon (I don't remember the name of the brand my family usually buys) but it's affordable and not artifical tasting.
-Fresh and moist rotisserie chicken
-From the costco "cafeteria" area, surprisingly good "Chicken Bakes". This is rolled up pizza dough with chicken, cheese, cesar salad dressing, bacon, green onions inside. I know it doesn't sound like the most delicious thing, but trust me it is. Especially hot out of the oven when the outside is so crispy.

Costco also sells these premaid and frozen at Costco. The one bad thing is that I found the nutritional information online and it's possible the worst single food item I've ever seen in my life! So I'm a little torn. As much as I'd like to recommend this treat, I don't want to wish a coronary on any of you!

Other treats:

Shari's Berries:
I was able to taste these because one of my roommates in college would get deliveries of these from her long-distance beau. They are so so so good. An excellent gift for somebody.

Also found online, salty caramels from Fran's Chocolates:

Actually, I guess you can say I stole this from Hil since she first discovered them. But they're divine! I love the contrasting tastes of salty and sweet.

  1. Costco is most definitely the bomb. Have you ever had the "Costco Tapas Special"? It's when hop on over there on a saturday afternoon, and go from food sample station to food sample station, tasting all their yummy delights. It's how I discovered Frank's Red Hot Sauce. Have a huge jar now at my place, if anyone wants to make buffalo chicken . . . . . .
