Goldilocks Longanisa at S.F. Costco

Was on a Costco run today and noticed, for the first time, Goldilocks label Longanisa in the packaged sausage cooler; it was 2.5 lbs for $9.99, I think.

Was at the new San Jose Costco on Lundy yesterday, and Goldilocks had quite an operation there with seven different tasting stations including spring rolls, abodo, a noodle dish, a chicken dish, and several pastries. There were other Goldilocks items such as the Longanisa in refrigerated cases nearby, I assume they signed a big deal with Costco recently.

      Not necessarily. I've seen vendors have big show-and-tells at Costco and their products were only sparsely seen therafter, if at all, at Costco. But there's probably a market for Goldilocks products that will give them some staying power at Costco. It also might be a good way for Costco to expand its market (not that the SF store needs it!)

        Now if they would just sell Goldilocks' lumpia. I don't know what I'd do with a whole CostCo-size package on a regular basis, but these would be a great addition to a superbowl party or the like.

          Are they the so-called "Shanghai" lumpia? I love the finger-food size of them.

            At the SJ store they did what I thought were eggrolls -- they looked too small/thin to be lumpia but if that's the Goldilocks signature, then bernalgirl, you have your wish :)

              hmm, that could be it. I've had lumpia the size of a cigarillo. That was some awesome lumpia
