I just tried some gelato at a new stand in the food court at my Costco, great flavor, smooth and creamy. Oh yah, a buck fifty compared to $5. at gelato shops.

      So. CA, it's a Kirkland stand you may get lucky if it takes off. I can see this as a test market, 3 scoops in a large waffle cone for 1.50. Can you say deal!

          Morena Boulevard, San Diego/La Jolla off the I-5. It is a 'test market' Costco; lots of unique items.

              On the day after Thanksgiving last year I had the pleasure (I'm not being sarcastic, either) of visiting 3 Costco's in the San Diego area, including the one on Morena. I live in the L.A. area and we were visiting my brother in law. He and his wife took us to the three and it made very jealous because all three stores we visited had significantly more items than any of the Costcos I have been to up here! All I have to say is that they had better spread those gelato stands up to the L.A. area because I've been telling people about it and their first reaction is for their eyes to bug out and want to run right over and try it out.
