Kosher @ Costco

Was at Costco in Brooklyn today and I noticed some new items, and some changes

- no more OU Cabot cheddar.

- friddge cases have changed from "bend down and grab" to standard supermarket type fridge shelving. The kosher case was full of boxes- it seemed like the box were cut open and tossed on the shelves without the products being unpacked

- new OU cheese- sugar river pepper jack with garlic and basil.

- usual selection of natural and kosher cheeses, but seemed like a few more varieties. I bought the individual cheese sticks, but I noticed A few types of American style cheese in large blocks.

- fall vegetables are back! Brussels sprouts, haricot vert, kale...

- cookies n cream cheesecake. It had giant pieces of chocolate chip cookies on top and Oreo crumbs in the cake itself. $15.99. Looked delicious!!

- several types of kugel... Looked like more variety than last time I was there.

      I've never had apple kugel. Is it dessert or a side dish?

        Like many things served by American kosher-keeping folk, it's sweet enough to be dessert, but is almost always served as a side dish.

          Some years ago I had a friend who was the nephew of a popular kosher caterer. He opened a (non-kosher) lunch spot in an Italian neighborhood and his most popular dish was the "dessert pasta."

          Yup, it was Aunt Sylvia's lukshen kugel.

          its marketed as a side dish, but i used it as a desert, it was like an apple bread pudding kind of, somehow it managed to get all caramelized and crunchy even in the microwave, ive served it with a dairy meal with some whipped mascarpone on top and with a meat meal with -wait for it- some browned onions on top

          it also freezees really well, which costco did u go to, i going to try to make it there tomorrow and buy them out

            Well not my California Costco. They didn't even have corned beef today.

            :(

              I went to Costco in Brooklyn. Actually went back today, but the place was madness and I totally forgot to look for it.

              On another note, the Kirkland cooking spray is kosher and is on sale this month. It's a relatively new product...

                  Hahah I have a car! And it fits a heck of a lot more than you'd think! I can get a stroller, cArseat, gallons of water, toilet paper, and all the groceries to be stuffed in with no issues!

            If it's the meal mart GF, best avoided. We actually tossed it.
