    Used to purchase the tubs of fresh mozzarella at Costco and haven't seen them recently. Any anecdotes or updates?

      Don't know-- I saw them at Restaurant Depot a couple of weeks ago. Maybe they just didn't sell well at Costco, so they got rotated out...

        I looked at it today but did to buy it, too large for me. it was about $ 12.99 for the 3 pound bucket, maybe 12 .49.

        Found it at the Costco in Hackensack. Hoping someone will share the enormous container with me. So excited to make my own caprese salad!!

          I've bought different brands before, and it's great on pizza too. Makes for an exceptionally gooey baked ziti!

            Costco has had it forever, but the Italian buffalo mozzarella they carry is so much more to die for (and a lot more expensive, though).

            It's the only Polly-O product I'll still touch.

              It hasn't always been OU.
              For kosher fresh mozzarella it's a great price....

              FYI for anyone looking I saw kosher fresh buffalo mozzarella I'm pomegranate (Brooklyn)

                  I saw some in Pomegranate, but it was leaking from the package and smelled awful, to the point where washing my hands didn't remove the smell.

                    Lemon juice gets rid of that smell. :-)

                      Oh no, that's awful. I didn't buy it, just saw it there.

                      Did you mention to anyone working that it was leaking?

                    MCF- I've been looking for kosher buffalo mozzerella - what brand is it? I don't live near a Costco, but if I know a brand I can ask my local store if they would consider carrying it.

                        This is Polly-o
                        I have seen the larger, egg size at costco
                        Has anyone seen the smaller size? I forgot the name...
                        the large ones are excellent

                          Greetings... I've seen several different versions of the Polly-O "fresh mozarella", all bearing O-U, at Restaurant Depot. I also bought large blocks of mozz. there-- cost $2.57/lb. The Restaurant Depot "house" brand "Supremo Italiano" (I think) has Tablet-K on some products.

                          I saw some from The Cheese Guy at West Side Market. I wasn't so enthused. It was a bit gamey.

                          I likes the idea of the jalapeno string cheese - but honestly - found it slightly rubbery tasting

                            It didn't taste rubbery. The texture was rubbery.
