Bag of La Boulangère Hazelnut Chocolate Filled Crêpes from Costco
La Boulangère Hazelnut Chocolate Filled Crêpe from Costco

It isn't often when we see crepes at Costco -- I haven't seen their Belgian Boys or La Creperie crepes in a long time now -- so when I saw these on-the-go chocolate filled crepes at Costco this past week (in the nuts/peanut butter aisle), I decided to try them out.

The bag came with 15 individually wrapped crepes, and the first thing I noticed when I tried one was that the crepe/"pancake" part was a little dry. However, the added hazelnut chocolate filling made that dryness OK. A random thing I noticed was that on each package, it reads "This Product has been frozen... never refreeze after thawig". (yes, thawig... or maybe "thawi9")

Anyway, the filling was on the sweet side and tasted similar to Nutella. I liked the sweet chocolate filling - it went well with the crepe. One crepe wasn't very filling, but it still makes a good, quick snack or dessert that you don't have to warm up or prepare yourself.

Bag of frozen Perdue Popcorn Chicken purchased at Costco
Perdue Popcorn Chicken cooked

My boyfriend and I bought some of the frozen Perdue Popcorn Chicken from Costco to have as a snack every now and then. The instructions on the bag state the preferred cooking method is using a conventional oven or toaster oven, but we just used the microwave instructions. The microwave instructions don't state how many pieces to microwave for 3 - 3.5 minutes, so we just tried microwaving 8 pieces.

Although the breading was thick, it didn't turn out very crispy. It was kind of doughy and a little too thick for me. The chicken underneath the breading was OK, but it was a little dry, and the overall taste of the chicken was a little peppery.

It was fine as a quick snack, but I don't know if I'd get these again.

Tub of Pub Cheese from Trader Joe's
Pub Cheese from Trader Joe's

Last time we went to Trader Joe's, we decided to try a spreadable cheese. The Sharp Cheddar Pub Cheese (aka Pug Cheese) jumped off the shelf. Some other spreadable cheeses have mayonnaise, but this didn't have any, which was good. I'm not usually a big fan of spreadable cheeses, but this Pub Cheese had a nice cheddar cheese taste that wasn't weird or too salty, and it was delicious!

I had some with bread, but it's delicious enough to eat by itself directly from the tub. We finished the whole tub in about a week... so we just bought some more. Too bad the Pub Cheese doesn't come in a bigger container :(
