It's not easy being drunk all the time. Everyone would be doing it if it were easy.

What aisle was that in? At that pricing, it's making me reconsider some life choices.

Also, nice avatar.

Had it when a buddy of mine bought it around Christmas time. Not the greatest quality Serrano, but for $99 you can certainly do worse.

I'm guessing this is a regional offer. Was at Costco yesterday to grab some copper river salmon and didn't see anything of the sort (I also wasn't looking for it).

FWIW, the pickles at the very top of the photo are Grillo brand and they are really really good.

Probably.

I didn't see any CRS today. Boo

I cut it off the bone and vacuum sealed it in a few bags. Seems fine but I'm not trying to make fine shavings from it. I've tried an extensive amount of Country Hams--but this was my first experience with buying a whole leg of Serrano ham. My brother thought he could tell the difference in that it was more tender and milder than country ham--but I didn't think it was better than Edwards, which uses Berkshire hogs to start with. On the bright side of climate change, I think I'm solidly in the ham belt now:
