  1. there are a few things that i always get at costco. one of them being the grimaud farms duck confit....it is delicious and keeps forever. also the packaged lump crab in the refrigerator section....it keeps pretty much indefinitely unopened and is literally packed full, one pound of crab meat for 13.99.

      duck confit?? I have never seen that there---where is it?

      1. re: loghia

        They said that they do not have duck confit anymore..........
        Is that true or maybe it was just @ my local Costco?!

      2. We've been buying organic gem lettuces from Costco -- they're packed by Earthbound Organics, and I haven't seen them anywhere else at such a nice price. I think the plastic carton includes six or eight little heads of lettuce.

          These are absolutely terrific. We have 3 Costco's near us but not all of them have these mini full-head lettuces all the time. The similar plastic container of mixed fancy lettuce "pieces"(?) is also very good.

          1. re: operagirl

            I love these- I eat a lot of salads for one, and being able to have variety without waste is appealing. Plus, those little lettuces are cute. :)

          2. The Kirkland premixed margarita in a bottle is surprisingly good. Doesn't beat a good homemade but we have a BYOB Mexican restaurant in the neighborhood and this is just a perfect choice to bring along. Worth $16.

              I went back for more today and it was $11.

              1. re: ferret

                This is some good stuff!!
                I always have a bottle on hand.
                And it is only $11.00

              2. I bought a big bag of garlic bulbs last august and kept them in the bottom of my cupboard. They still haven't gone bad! Their onions seem to last much longer than those bought elsewhere. I like to buy the marinated flank steak in the refrigerated section once in awhile for a quick meal during the week. My friend likes the Cattle Drive baked beans he bought recently. Good thing too as they come eight cans bound together. He said they were good right out of the can. Usually he likes to doctor up his beans.

                1. The fresh apricots have been outstanding this year. Also, the raspberries we picked up yesterday (12 oz for $3.99) were great too.

                    Finished off a package of raspberries in the car on the way home from Costco yesterday. Big, flavorful and perfect.

                      The raspberries at Costco are always excellent.

                      The 6-pack of romaine lettuce usually lasts for a long time in the fridge
