    going tomorrow (out of town) and am looking for must buy recommendations for non perishable items.

    I've heard the 100% kalamata extra virgin olive oil is a must. What else?

    I've been to that store a couple of times and always feel like I'm trying to find something worth buying. Don't get the appeal at all.

    They have great sales on wine. They also talk about it a little bit in their newsletters. 2 buck chuck is pretty bad.

    They have a lot of prepared food. Boxed and frozen. Probably some other weird stuff. Wine is the only thing I like, even then I don't really go out of the way to go to the place.

    I like their Organic Bolivian coffee. Not saying it's a must have but its good.

    I live walking distance from one so I buy a lot of groceries there. They have some interesting items and their prices are a lot lower than Whole Foods. I like the goat cheese with blueberries and the Wild Sockeye Salmon but obviously they are perishable items.

    coffee filters, rest of the stuff in store just makes you fat. Everything is better at other stores now.

    What's a pressed cunt? Is it that you become cunty when pressed? If so, that's a good term.
