During flu season, not much :/ I've seen enough close call sneezes to like my samples sans snot.

Not much here either ... when I go to Costco, I usually already know what I need to get or look for, and the faster I'm in and out, the better it is for my sanity.

"and this is why i never eat the samples"

A+ on the snot factor

I never eat at Costco, but I will sometimes bring home one of their Pizzas. I would do it more often, but I tend to shop Costco pretty close to closing and their food court closes promptly while I am still inside shopping or checking out.

Not much yesterday. Holy cow..it was a freakin' zoo yesterday. Looked like a bunch of Mom's and Grandma's took the kids there to eat samples for lunch.

Usually just a bite here and there.

Did you taste the Pecan Pie yet? OMG..to.die.for.

Never. Too many people talking, breathing, kicking up dust when they walk by, too many kids with colds, it's just too much for me to even think about. I like my food cooked by me or served up in nice restaurants, which is a rare enough treat.

I do like Costco hot dogs, though - go figure.

I tend to avoid shopping during the hours that they offer samples, so fairly rarely, though mostly because nothing is available when I'm there (have I mentioned that I don't like crowds?)

However, I will watch the person preparing the samples for a minute or longer from a distance, so as to get an idea if they are using gloves, avoiding wiping their nose, etc...

Almost every time I go, but not the samples. I just can't resist getting the hotdog and soda after I'm done shopping.

Onions, ketchup, and hot pepper flakes .... tasty.

(Course, those lucky folks down in Florida apparently still have the Polish sausage option ... stinkers.)

luckilly, all the germophobes skip the samples, leaving more for me!

I used to love their hot dogs until they changed their buns. Now I only really eat there in the summer when it's hot to get their berry sundae.

I get a very berry sundae almost every time I go: lots of berries and frozen yogurt. Positively wonderful!

I guess I am the only sample hog there is but man do I enjoy my samples.

I turn the samples into lunch (still in the college student/peace corps mode).

@psaux: polish is available in california and nevada too. Always has been. Sauerkraut too.

I eat any sample that looks like I'll like it. Today it was Steak Jerky, Philly cheese steak, trail mix, blood orange soda. I don't worry much about cold/flu germs, you can eat those without any risk of getting sick, the cold or flu virus is usually transmitted through the eyes or nose.

I eat every sample available. Sometimes I go just for lunch. Best day to go for samples is the Saturday before Super Bowl Sunday
