Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken Spotted at Costco

Bacon-wrapped anything more often than not is a banger. A savory, salty robe of pork belly is usually the answer to plussing up any food, and applying it to chicken that’s stuffed with melty cheese is pretty much an ideal.

That’s why Costco customers are loving Real Good Foods’ Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken. It comes in two varieties, Three Cheese and Pepper Jack, and could be a must for fans of this delicious trio combining as one formidable target for their cravings.

Real Good Foods’ Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken is now available in the frozen foods section of participating Costco locations.

Tearless ‘Sunion’ Onions Now Being Sold in the UK

Photo: Sunions

‘Sunions’, the onions that are triple-tested to ensure they won’t make you cry, have been available in the US now at select retailers like Costco, Aldi, and Kroger. Now, the ground-breaking innovation has jumped the Atlantic and made its way to the United Kingdom, as it’s now being sold at Waitrose stores throughout the country.

The science behind how Sunions remain tearless is explained via their site:

“Sunions are not a genetically modified product and were grown through an all-natural cross-breeding program. Unlike all other onions, Sunions become sweeter every day. Volatile compounds in onions are responsible for tearing and pungent flavor and the amounts of those compounds in other onions remain the same or increase over time. In Sunions, these compounds do the exact opposite and decrease to create a tearless, sweet and mild onion.”

Sunions will be available in three-packs at all Waitrose locations in the United Kingdom starting January 18 for £1.50 GBP, or approximately $2 USD.

Viral TikTok Shows a Massive Haul of Food From Whole Foods Dumpster

Reply to @celester The same WF that throws out enough each night to feed a community😔. ##dumpsterdiving ##freegan ##usa ##dumpsterdiver ##AEHolidayForever

♬ original sound – Dumpster Diving Freegan

TikTok user @dumpsterdivingfreegan recently posted a clip that went viral to the tune of over 3 millions views, which highlighted a massive haul of seemingly fresh food that she obtained dumpster diving through a Whole Foods market.

The account’s aim is to use dumpster diving as a way to expose the problem of food waste in America. In the clip above we see what look to be a still packaged and still frozen whole turkey, dozens of what seem to be fresh raw meat and Beyond Meat, juices, sauces, milk, yogurt, fresh cut fruits, salads, and packages of guacamole. It’s a sobering visual, really, knowing the disparity between the amount of food being wasted and individuals in need.

This whole account has numerous clips that show the mass amounts of still good products and food that’s being wasted by markets and stores in the US, and hopefully with its sizable following of 347k+ followers, can further shed light on the problem that can lead to solutions.

Is it Ranch 99 or 99 Ranch?

There’s been a great debate over how to properly say 99 Ranch Supermarket. I’ve heard it both ways: 99 Ranch and Ranch 99. All my life I’ve been saying ‘Ranch 99’ with my whole chest. Why? It just rolls off the tongue a lot easier, the flow is just much better when said that way.

Alas, the actual supermarket finally weighed in on the old debate today via an Instagram post, and well, Team Ranch 99 takes the L.

And so, 99 Ranch it is. Ah well, I’m still getting all my Asian groceries from there anyways.

Costco Is Selling 5 Pound Servings of Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are a surefire top 3 Thanksgiving side dish and I say that with my whole chest. Simply put, there’s a mass of folks like me who can’t get enough of it at every Thanksgiving feast. If you’re of that lot, know that Costco is now selling 5-pound ready-to-eat packages of mashed potatoes and mashed sweet potatoes, as spotted by Instagram account @thecostcobuys.

The ready to heat and serve packages are the perfect compliment to a brimming gravy bowl and our hungry appetites. It’s nice to have a mashed sweet potatoes option for those looking for a less savory option.

Because every Thanksgiving feast is naked without some proper mashed potatoes, Costco should be the move to snag the 5-pound packages.
