Costco finds


#161

I prefer Montgomery’s but I wouldn’t eat it on toast with tomatoes.


#162

The Jasper Hill Cave-Aged Cheddar Costco has had for $10 /lb. is worth a try.


#163

Ooh, I LOVE Jasper Hill. Will have to look for it.


#164

The Jasper Hill is delicious. If I’m doing a massive cheese plate and all the cheese is from Costco, Jasper Hill’s cave-aged always makes the cut.


#165

Have you had any of their others? Their Winnimere (seasonal) is my fave and I love Harbison also.


#166

For a different kind of cheese entirely, has anyone tried Délice de Bourgogne? Really nice triple-creme. If you want to try a smaller chunk that what Costco sells, Trader Joe’s also has it, in small wedges.


#167

We love DdB!!! As do our little grand-kids. At least at our Costco it seems to be more holiday-seasonal and, yes, TJs has it also.


#168

We bought a chicken recently (in Seattle) and it was a lot juicier than I remember. (It’s been a few years.) But not a ton of flavor and I doubt I’ll be in a rush to buy one again.


#169

Costco Santa Clarita stocks Chef’d for $15. Turned out pretty well but 30 mins is a crock of shit.


#170


Enjoy those while they last.


#171

Now that you mention it, last I looked, I haven’t seen it at our Costcos either. TJ’s always has it, though.

#172

I might have seen it at WF but not sure.


#173

They were sampling little turkey, cheese and pesto sandwiches. Columbus turkey which we bought cause we frequently have a fridge full of food but nothing for lunch. The pesto is Kirkland and was really good. Never thought of putting it on a sandwich but we will. Today we had a couple of slices of leftover pizza for lunch and I spread a little of it on it. Quite tasty. It only has about a two month expiration but can be frozen. They’re so smart to sample things, aren’t they?


#174

oh I LOVE that stuff! I serve it with fig jam and water crackers and as one of my friends said “It’s like ice cream!” So rich and smooth.


#175

Costco now has back the big jar of Star capers, under $6. I bought two jars as I’d been out for a long time.

They also had honeycomb which they haven’t had in ages.

ETA: Forgot to mention that we bought a loaf of chive potato focaccia. Brushed with oo and grilled.


#176

Garofalo mozzarella di bufala campana DOC, $12 for four 125 g / 4.4-oz. balls. Got tipped off about it by an Italian. It’s not easy to find mozzarella this good in Italy. The Redwood City Costco has it sometimes but I don’t think my closest branches have ever had it.

They also had the Angelo & Franco ciliegine, $6 for 1 lb. We did a taste-off and there was no comparison. I had some A&F burrata in a restaurant that was great but have not seen it retail yet.


#177

The Marina del Rey store had it back in July. Pretty darned good as a Costco item.


#178

Where was it? I haven’t seen it.


#179

The MdR store has that aisle with cheeses on both walls, perpendicular to the meat dept case with prepared foods. The aisle’s north(?) wall usually has at least a couple of fresh mozzarella/burrata products. Not sure if the product is still there - I don’t recall seeing it last week.


#180

When I’ve seen it, it has always been near the other mozzarellas.
