Really dumb topic, I know, but I figured if anyone could help me, it's the various and assorted Trianglians that frequent this board...

Does anyone know where in the area I can buy one of those really BIG plastic containers of animal crackers? Besides Sams/BJs/Costco? It's for a kind of gag christmas gift for a coworker with a serious love for animal crackers.

Thanks all.

My fav topic! I can only think of the warehouse stores you mentioned above. You may give Walmart a try. I love animal crackers as well. So much so that I buy the large box of crackers from Sam's on a regular basis.

Yeah, I know the warehouse stores would probably have 'em, but we don't currently have a membership to any of them. I know you can still buy things without a membership, but don't you have to pay extra?

Walmart carries them in a bag and it's HUGE! Enough to feed an army and then some...cheap too!

You could use the one-day pass to BJs that they have on their website to go in, but they do charge 15% extra. Check around the office, chances are, someone has a membership and would get them for you or let you go on their membership just for that.

and the berkeley and Jensen brand is made by the ones sold at Wal*mart (my kids eat them all the time - can't remember the name but they are yummy!)

You don't even need the pass - just go to the front desk and let them know that you would like to check out their offerings - load up your cart with things you need plus the cookies and save a bundle at the same time!

ed: Stauffers is the brand I couldn't remember.

Thanks, all. I ended up getting the big bag at Walmart, and a big clear cookie jar to go with. I'll just give my coworker the bag + the cookie jar, and it'll achieve the same effect.

I believe non-members can go into BJ's and get a one-day pass. I think you pay 5% over the membership price for whatever you buy. Anyway, it's a possibility.

Edit: OK, it seems that someone beat me to it. I guess I should start reading the whole thread before commenting on a post.
