If you’ve ever shopped at a warehouse store like Sam’s Club, you know that while three-pound cinnamon rolls and nine-pound buckets of frosting are amazing, truly the best part of having a membership at the club is all the free samples.
While you can find a few samples on most days, Sam’s Club really goes all out with its biggest sampling offering of the year right before Thanksgiving at its “Taste of Sam’s” event. This year, you’ll find at least 12 stations of samples each day of the event, and the samples vary daily, so you’ll be able to try new foods each time you go!
You’ll find everything from classic Thanksgiving dishes like turkey, mashed potatoes and mac and cheese, to some foods you may not be used to having for the holiday, like lobster bisque and La Croix sparkling water. Of course, you’ll also find sweet treats like pumpkin pie!
Sam’s Club estimates they’ll be giving out a whopping 1,500 tons of food during the six-day event, which runs Nov. 16-21, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.
Take a look at some of the items you’ll be able to sample during the Taste of Sam’s event. Keep in mind that the samples vary per day, so the foods below will not necessarily be available on any given day.
Member’s Mark Raspberry Chipotle Dip
Taste test this Member’s Mark raspberry chipotle dip, which is available in a 24-ounce tub. Made with cream cheese, sour cream, raspberries and jalapeños, it sounds like the perfect party-starter!
Member’s Mark Spanakopita
This Member’s Mark spanakopita is made with feta, cream cheese and spinach, all wrapped up in a crispy phyllo pastry. It would work well as a quick appetizer for holiday parties — all you need to do is throw the little bites in the oven!
