I'm heading to Quebec City and Montreal next month, and I plan on making a Costco stop. Does Costco in Canada have any awesome offerings that I can't find in the US? I'm wondering specifically about snacks and packaged goods (I won't have much cooler space). Thanks, Chowhounds!
I would say that generally Costco offers much of the same brands in Canada as they do in the US however, there are some specialty items from more local producers (ie. breads, sorbets, dumplings) that appear from time to time - but they're not really snack or packaged goods. If you're looking for interesting local items, may I suggest that you hit Jean Talon or Atwater Markets where you could find a huge range of foods (as well as local beers and ciders) that are really interesting and different. Again they may be more on the perishable side but you might find something...
