What’s one thing that is essential to life in America?
Europeans might give you various answers, but I think one that the whole world would agree on is bulk products.
Well over here in Edinburgh, there’s only one place to get bulk products. Costco. And that’s where I went today.
Surprisingly, there were actually some American products there that I haven’t seen anywhere else. It was kind of surreal and very nostalgic, as I have been to a Costco (or Sam’s Club) only twice since I was about ten and going to the grocery store with my mom was cool (or mandatory). I didn’t ever go in my own adult years because I didn’t see the point of buying in bulk except for parties, and in that case I usually sent someone else to Costco for me. Haha.
Here’s what I found today:
Now, for some cruel reminders that brought me back to the UK:
And because this amuses me:
Unfortunately, the bus ride to Costco is almost an hour, and with all the stopping and going and round-abouts (because those are HUGE here), I got pretty dangerous motion sickness (yeah, I get that pretty easily). So my trips to Costco will probably be infrequent at best. But always a comfort to know it’s there. 🙂
