Thumbs down Costo Samples

How right your are.

My first trip to Costco - first time ever in my life - was about noon on a Saturday. I ate about ten samples, mostly mediocre stuff, but the worst was a sample of Chef Boyardee canned ravioli. CANNED RAVIOLI. And even so, to get mine I had to jostle two little old ladies fighting to get ahead of me in line. In real life, we have ravioli about once a year which we get, that day, from a place that makes it in house - favorite being Pumpkin Gorgonzola available only in the late fall.

I can feel in my bones what the sight of the string of sample tables does to me when I walk in the door of that place. If I were an honest man, I'd attend Costco Anonymous.
