Canadian Costco - Can you get anything unusual there?

There's always a lot of talk on this board about the interesting finds at Costco in the US.

I got a Costco membership a few months back without ever having stepped foot in the store, to save a significant amount on a countertop installation. I'm wondering if I should venture to the store to check out the food finds. Or will it just be bulk packages of all the things I can find at the grocery chains?

Some of the packaging is large, but you can freeze or divide the items that are too large.

      1. Parmesan cheese wedges are a steal there. People also rave about their meats.
