La Tur is back at Costco

wolfe Dec 31, 2011 03:57 PM

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.

      Thanks for the news - I hope Redwood City still has some Weds. when we get home...

              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.

                Their fabulous Stilton with a best buy of 1 Feb is about $5 for 17 oz is delicious as of today. Have with a slice of pear. Oh yes ans the La Tur was also good. I doubt it is going to crash tomorrow but it may be cheaper.

                  That is exciting re: the Hodo Soy. Are they gigantic packages?

                    2.25 lbs. for the firm tofu ($5.29), 1 lb. for the yuba strips (7.49).

                Costco in SF had a few boxes full of La Tur when I last went mid-last week.
