Dakota Boots

Hey construction friends,

Did you know that Dakota Boots are made by a different company than Dakota Outerwear?

In the past four years my boyfriend Todd has gone through three pairs of $250 quad-comfort Dakota’s, and all three have had the sole separate from the rest of the boot. He wears Dakota jackets and rain-gear purchased four years ago that are are in great condition (besides one broken zipper due to him shoving a nail-bar in a pocket that isn’t meant for nail-bars).

It was news to both of us to find out that Dakota boots are not made by the same company. After Todd couldn’t find a website for the maker of the boots, and upon further investigation, it seems that they are made by Mark’s Work Warehouse to break about a month after their 100 day warranty is up.

Only bright side I see is go ‘Lease’ yourself a pair of these puppies, and bring them back in before the 100 day warranty!

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.
