The Old Dutch Humpty Dumpty recipe BBQ chips are back. The classic BBQ chip flavour. So good.

Time for a Christmas Cheese Surprise from Costco: The Lancashire "Bomb" from England!!

I stumbled across this unique "bomb" cheese at Costco, and saved it for New Year's Eve. It didn't disappoint! This Lancashire "Bomb" is encased in wax and aged 2 years. It's supposed to be eaten within 3 days of breaking the seal.

This one was a big hit with my family!
It starts off mild and creamy, but has a strong, spicy and complex aftertaste that stays with you for quite a while. The overall texture is closer to that of a real parmesan cheese, in that you can't really cube this one up. You have to dig it out with a spoon or knife and spread it. It partially crumbles and spreads.

We tried it on crackers initially, but it also paired extremely well at breakfast time on fresh baked bread with a drizzle of pure date syrup.
For my final attempt, I crumbled a bunch of this into a bowl of freshly cooked pasta, and also chopped up some Spanish chorizo. This was another winner, making the pasta slightly gooey, and adding a strong and delicious aftertaste. I loved it!

I don't know if this was a seasonal item (Christmas only) or if they will be carrying it regularly. Just remember it should be eaten within 3 days of opening.

Item Number: 1462002
Price: $12.99
Size: 450g

* Those black specs are just bits of wax that got carried inside by the knife. Make sure you wash the outside with soap before cutting.

Speaking of cheese there's a new manchego I spotted this week at C Mississauga. Don Juan manchego 12-month DOP - $13.49 (1511945) 500g, product of Spain.

FWIW, the Kirkland manchego is a 6-month age and is $12.99 for 500g.

I'll grab one next time I'm at that store and post a comparison.

I'm no foodie or chicken wing expert, but I'm very curious what makes these pre-cooked frozen chicken wings worth over $25/kg?

The most I've ever paid is probably $12 kg. Sure these come in a cooler box...but how do they get to $110 (or $130 when not on sale) for 4kg of chicken wings?

It says no injection and minimal ingredients.
If what they say is actually true, that might be it.
These days they use tricks like injecting chicken with sodium phosphate to increase weight.

Example... i bought a turkey $18 for 6.65kg! 15 pounder!
So cheap right...
After cooking , i got a sauce pot full of liquid! Made for good gravy. But the amount of liquid cooked out shocked me. And the meat retained so much moisture. It was for sure juice up. I actually over cooked it! But because of all that moisture it was ok.

Really bland - little to no flavour. I have to finish it so will try and spice it up but won't buy it again :( Total disclosure, I generally eat keto so no beans in my chili - maybe the beans made it boring?

I enjoyed the Rana Tagliatelle package with sauce and chicken. I don't usually buy much premade kit type stuff but tried the Rana because I like their stuffed pastas from WalMart.

None at my Costco this week but I hope it comes back. Tagliatelle was al dente, chicken well cooked and not spongy, sauce nicely seasoned. Topped it with fresh parsley, chives and grated parmesan.

Will buy again if it comes back.

Do they really need to import them from Germany? How can the cost make sense when you factor in the freight to get it here?
