      The Cabot 3-year old cheddar at Costco has me hooked even though I'm a New York cheddar fan and distantly related to the cheese McCadams. It has a great tang and that tell-tale crumbly texture.

    2. The big wedges of parmagiano reggiano are good. Cheese selection varies a lot seasonally and at different Costcos, so it's hard to make a general recommendation.

          I've bought a bufala mozzarella there that was delicious. running over this week for the truffle cheese

      2. The best cheese I've had from Costco is the Cougar Gold, an excellent sharp white cheddar. The only problem is that it's not always available.

          Are you in the Pacific NW? My sister last year bought be a large tin-thing of the Cougar cheese and it was fantastic. I've never been able to find it here in nyc.

            I got this last week. I love it in an omelet, and on a burger. It's good stuff!

          2. I just recently purchased some wonderful Stilton at Costco. We also love the Tillamook Vintage White Cheddar cheese.
