Yep, 100 lbs for Sam's.

Don't remember the price...but they are good.

I had a problem transferring/pouring out of this huge bag into
mylar bags in 5 gal buckets. I had to dip them out with a ladel
one at at time...what a pain! And it took forever as you can imagine.
The 50lb bags are much easier to handle.

Taste like beans to me...and make great music!

Locally, those bags are $49.95, so price wise, you're just about as well off buying their easier to handle Diamond prewashed 50 pound bags for $27.95. As far as quality, the Peak beans are just fine. Same as any premium beans you'd buy in the store in 2 pound bags. I have a bag of them open right now because they didn't have any 50 pounders when I went shopping for them. They also offer the same beans in 10 pound bags for about $6-7 if you want to give them a try before you commit to a larger purchase.

Probably because the price varies from store location to store location.

The only thing that gives me gas as bad as beans is jerusalem artichokes.

I'll be eating lots of these both after the TEOWAWKI arrives.

It won't be pretty.

I've bought smaller bags of the Peak brand.
The beans were good. The only issue is the fact that there were a lot of dirt clods to pick out. I probably had to pick out 8 or 10 per pound. Not a big deal if you sort your beans (which is always a good idea) before cooking.

Are you calling me a tightwad? lol

Sam's is about 5 minutes from my house, so I spend enough time there to memorize most of their prices. Sometimes I sneak over there to play around in their wine section or hit up their samplers.

I haven't had issues with Peak as far as dirt goes. It's supposed to be triple cleaned, but sometimes it sneaks through anyway I guess. They do offer another brand for about the same price, in more manageable 50 lb bags, that also says it's prewashed. I don't remember much dirt in that one either, but it's been a while since I used that brand.

Being right on the border of Mexico, we eat a lot of beans here. Your system actually gets pretty used to it if you eat them regularly for a while. Not that it still doesn't "generate methane", it just doesn't do it quite as much. Now wheat bran is another story! At least with me. I earned my nickname that way.

Sign into the site and pick a location to get pricing.

We buy peak, they are good quality.

I had no problem getting them into my 2 litter drink bottles, used funnels and a big coffee cup to dip and pour.

I have a Sam's membership, but they are about 50 miles away. I only stop there if I am close by.

I have bought 25# bags of triple washed pinto beans at Costco for $12.99 I think. It's a little more but easier to handle.
