I think they sell Sikorski stuff at T&t on Yonge and 16th. If you can't find it there, I would go get debrecyna at Yummy mkt on Dufferin and Finch.
You can get that sausage at any Polish deli. Great from the BBQ / grill and nothing else really.

On our next trip to Florida, it will be a few bottles of liquor and Cholula.

Cholula was about $6 USD/2 pack for the large bottles, 360 ml / 12 oz. Got them at the Business Costco in Orlando. They will also individualy vacuum seal your steaks there.

Also the liquor. The cognac is $46 USD and the 1.75l bottle of scotch was $15.99 USD. They also have a 12 year old for $38ish.
I know Costco Liquor sells the Cognac and the Scotch pictured in Alberta. I haven't seen the Cholula though.

Some nice clearance and sale prices this week.

Frozen bag of lobster arms (usually sold at the road show) were $21.99 ($5 off). Mmmmm..... lobster.

Turkeys were $20 off (roughly 1/2 price), lots of fish and beef on sale too ($5 off striploin steaks, $15 off whole striploin)

Only $20 off? Glad I skipped Costco this week! I was feeling I should go because last year there was a huge sale on fresh turkey after Christmas. Don't remember exactly but I recall it was like $35 off

The one I got was reg price $19.99

The cake has a big bourbon flavour, but also I find a bit of a wood taste to it, which I dont care for. Its a dense cake, the topping is yummy... glad that I bought it for the holidays but would not buy again.
That's my 2cents worth

I've been buying the 1kg frozen raw shrimp (16-20ct) for $19.99 for as long as I can remember. Never see it go on sale.

Last night it was down to $16.99 at Brampton, no sale indicated.

Yay?

The topping look great. I expected something more than just a vanilla chocolate swirl cake. I also will not buy again.

They are lobster claws, with a bit of the leg attached. Good amount of meat in them, we buy them often when the roadshow is in town.
That's my 2cents worth

Unless I'm misremembering, $27 was a jacked up price for the holidays.
I'm like 90% certain they were $20ish before Christmas.

death_hawk! You're back! You've been missed.

I haven't had any luck with the lobster pieces at Costco...doesn't seem to be much to eat for the price.

Indeed. Spent too much money. Turns out I also spend too much money without RFD too.


There was this literal one time where they were selling claws by weight. I snagged a couple claws off a 6lb (estimate) lobster.
TL;DR I was in a lobster coma after 3 claws whereas I usually eat a whole bag of the current ones.
I've never seen the singles since.
