Sundowner Ranch Freezer Meats

13051 Old Mission Rd, Lake Country, BC V4V 2H1

Have been going to Sundowner’s since my mum discovered this gem in my early teens! If you’re on the hunt for a place that has wide selection with amazing quality, THIS IS THE PLACE!!!! I come from a family of 8, and we’d always have another family or two over for thanksgiving, so being able to rely on their BIG delicious turkeys year after year is just awesome 🙂 Keep up the great work!!! Now I’m craving their dried meat sticks and pepperonis…mmm…

Costco Using Different Burrito Supplier Replaced with Nasty Knock-Off

I grew up eating Costco Burritos as ‘treats’ when we had to time to cook, those were dad’s easy lunches and we knew keeping for him was vital in ensuring some days when there was no leftovers, dad still got a decent lunch.

After moving out, I kept the tradition of having some easy meals on hand, but about three years my favorite kind of burrito, the hot ones, disappeared, and was replaced with more bean and cheese and beef and bean. It also appears that the quality of the burrito has gone downhill, as the tortillas don’t have those little brown spots that show they’ve been crisped up. Instead they were white powdery, the contents were dry, and seemed like half of it had dissapeared.

I went to Independent Grocer two weeks ago, (Loblaws) and they had no name burritos – WITH THE HOT ONES!!!! Curious to see if they were any good, as they were also 3 bucks cheaper, they ARE THE OLD ONES. Delicious, full of beans and chunks of meat, with enough sauce to chase away dryness!

I’ve been eating these for 20 years, trust me when I say Costco must have changed supplier and no name picked up their business.

So once again, Costco is buying products from companies using inferior ingredients and selling it at previous cost. (See my previous article regarding inferior ingredients in their ‘Organic cream of mushroom soup’, they really mean almost half potato!)

I’d also like to point out I’ve stopped buying most produce there, as well as milk, as within a few days it’s gone bad.

Costco used to be the go to for large families, a trustworthy place to get nutritious food, but if they continue replacing their products with low quality SHIT, I won’t be recommending them.
