Costco sells a little bit of America
I finally made it to Costco recently, as my mother-in-law has a membership. There was a buzz about it on a facebook site, I frequent, called American Ex-pats in UK. I needed to see how much of America they really stock here in UK. There were some nice surprises like finding Carters Clothing, pajamas and playwear for young children and infants. Other American items I noticed were Poppycock, Paul Newman's grape juice, various hershey chocolates, skippy peanut butter, chicken of the sea tuna and everything bagels. I was most impressed with the lunch cafe'. Probably the cheapest place I've ever eaten in the U.K.---baked (jacket) potato with tuna for £1.25 and hot dog with unlimited soda for about the same. Worth a scooch if someone you know is already a member.
