Great deals at Costco [Canada]
it was mentioned in another thread that this might warrant a thread on its own i agreed
I like the olive oil (not the organic one) and the triangular whole wheat buns. Also the little French green beans.
Thanks for kicking this one off vandan!
Is it the fresh baguettes you mean (in baked good section). They're ok and a good value but a bit stodgier than I like my baguette to be (I usually get mine at Patisserie Lebeau).
My recent finds:
Greek Gods honey yogurt. Wickedly rich and creamy (10%!) and gently honey sweetened. Delish!
Huge box of steel cut oats in the cereal section. Has fortified me over this dreary winter (especially when topped with sliced almonds and dried cherries, also from Costco)
Farro wheat (big bag for about what I pay for a small one elsewhere).
Good finds I can usually count on finding:
Olive oil (the Tuscan one)
Grapeseed oil (for frying - huge bottle at a very reasonable price)
Chicken (not necessarily cheaper than elsewhere but convenient), beef
Coffee (great price for a couple of Ethical Bean types and one Salt Spring)
Dubliner cheddar and various other cheeses.
Good finds that came and went (and I'm regularly looking for):
Kirkland Spanish almonds (see them in WA state sometimes but not here for years)
Kirkland Rwandan coffee (very dark roast, lovely floral notes)
Duso's goat cheese ravioli (so good with the also gone Dave's Butternut Squash sauce)
Victoria White Linen pasta sauces (especially the Marinara).
sure many Costco finds are available elsewhere but often at twice the price.

Costco has french baguettes and some rustic Italian long bread - THAT is fantastic - really good chew, and if it's warm when I pick it up at least 1/3 is gone before I get home. I find freezes well and makes for great parmesan/garlic bread.
I keep hearing about this White Linen pasta sauce but don't recall ever sseeing it...is it available in Metro Vancouver?
Parmesan cheese (blocks, not shredded - I don't know how the price of the shredded stuff compares). You have to buy a big block, but it is at least $10 / kilo cheaper than I've seen anywhere else. We usually split a block with friends.
Frozen edamame is also a much better price than elsewhere.
