Please mention your store location when posting, since Costco inventory varies a lot between stores.
I finally tried the turkey and spinach lasagna with no fat ricotta in the refrigerated food section. Not bad at all. This was at Montgomeryville Pa. Forget the brand name and I tossed the packaging but I'll buy it again for the convenience. I chose to bake it in my convection toaster oven although the directions claim you can microwave it as well.
In the Chicago area there are a number of new dips/spreads that have popped up lately. All pretty good. There's a company (can't recall name) with "no mayo" prominently displayed on the label offering bean-based olive dip and baba ghannouj - both good. There's also a Buffalo Hummos (Hummos with Buffalo wing spicing) - hot and good.
The Kirkland brand green tea bags. Shockingly good. The tea itself is great, tastes almost like it's pure matcha powder (I actually empty the entire plastic bag into my cup to get all the great powder left over). Even the sachets/tea bags themselves are wonderful - a woven bag with the string coming off the middle of the bag and a paper tag designed to conveniently hook onto the lip of your cup.
Can't get enough of these. Made by Ito En, according to the package.
These were found in Northern Virginia (sorry, don't live there, so had to have relatives give me bagfuls of their own).
