Costco Nuts = Obsession

Every year = same obsession.  Well, every year since becoming a Costco member.

Nuts. I lurvs them. Cover them in chocolate and I want to marry them.

Need a new obsession?  Here’s mine:

My love affair with Costco products shamelessly continues.

Look at their pic on the container. You know how most products don’t live up to their deceptive marketing photos? Well, Costco does it right. No trickery involved as they tempt your salivary glands. (yes, that empty jug should be your first clue)

The almonds are crunchy and big, but it’s really the chocolate coating that is impressive. It’s thick and totally delicious.



These bad boys are fat and delicious!

The saddest part is when only a few remain. I try so hard to savor them…slowly…but, who am I kidding? I have little self-control when roasted nuts and a generous layer of chocolate are involved.

Only four left? Oh, I’ll just have one and then put them away (I store them in the fridge because I like cold crunchy chocolate).

Soooo good. Maybe just one more, and then in the fridge they go!

Did you know that almonds are really really really good for you? One more. Then, I’m done.

Just one left?! How can I leave it in there? That crunchy nut luring me into its chocolate-covered web is too much to bear.

Dang it.

3 pounds of chocolate-covered almonds gone!

Now y’all get why Grandmama runs, right?

Runs right back to Costco…

If you are the saddest sack of all because you don’t live near a Costco, quit yer cryin’!  You can order a bucket for yourself by clicking HERE.

      They make me smile too! I’m trying really hard to be good enough so Santa will bring a couple of jugs…

  2. I love this post! I could never buy that thing…. I’m not as disciplined with the work outs! =)

    Thank you for spreading JOY and sharing at the Oh What a HAPPY Day party.

  3. Hilarious! And the bad thing about Costco is the ginormous sizes! I’m visiting from the Just Us Four link party.


  4. OK– if they have those in dark chocolate like that it would be worth the membership price because I don’t have one!

  5. Too funny.
