La Tur is back at Costco

A little pricier this year at $14.99 a pound with a package at about $8 almost 1/2 the regular price. If you can wait a few days, as it approached its best buy date, it may be lower but there may be none left.
Also noted a Kirkland house brand Vermont Cheddar with the label reading cave aged, bandage wrapped that sounds suspiciously similar to the prize winning Cabot at 1/2 the price.
I just bought some today at the Mountain View Costco - they had about 10 on the shelf.
One of our favorite treats - had paid double a day earlier at Whole Foods.
Tomorrow (the 17th) is the sell by date on the La Tur at the Richmond Costco. They still have a few cases, located on the top shelf in the regular cheese section. The cheese still appears to be in good condition.
Totally off topic, but still exciting: the Richmond Costco now has Hodo Soy tofu and spicy yuba strips.
The new La Fromagerie in the Dogpatch, SF has La Tur $13.95 ea.
