Interesting Foodstuff At Costco (moved from SF)

oakjoan Apr 26, 2007 05:54 PM

We went to Richmond Costco yesterday and I spied a couple of interesting items for sale (didn't buy either). One was quart plastic tubs of "Korma" which was made in NY. They looked beautiful - sort of a fiery coral color.

The other was pomegranate ice cream bars - round bars of pom ice cream covered with chocolate.

Now I wish I'd bought the bars.

Anybody tried or heard of either or these?

Richmond Costco is also the first place I ever saw and bought those mochi ice cream balls that I love so well and everybody I know thinks are disgusting. Never saw them again, but they have em at TJs and BB.

    If it was Sheer Bliss pomegranate ice cream bars somewhere in the linked thread someone liked the a lot. I like the pomegranite ice cream, but haven't had the bar yet.

      I checked those out at Nob Hill -- pomegranate is supposed to be healthy, but the calorie count on the Sheer Bliss was sky high. I guess they need lots of cream and sugar to balance the tartness/astringency of the pomegranate.

      i have! they are wonderful. they use a dark chocolate which goes great over the tart pom ice cream. very refreshing...i had them after a dinner of grilled salmon and chinese broccoli sauteed with garlic.

        In SF they have the fancy organic mushrooms. I think they are labeled royal trumpets of something like that. You can also find them at Whole Foods as well.
        They are really good.
        I also found duck confit, again the same brand as Whole Foods but way cheaper. They keep for a while in the fridge so you can stock up.

          Our Costco has tubes of pomegranate sorbet with vanilla ice cream and orange sorbet with vanilla ice cream. I haven't had them but my family loves them.

            ours has tropical fruit sorbets in the fruit shell (like what I remember getting at north end cafe's for dessert years ago) -- quite good. they always run out very quickly.
