Costco Products You Enjoy

Kirkland organic chicken stock. Better Than Bouillon low sodium chicken base. Cheese, smoked salmon, black beans, crushed tomatoes, frozen potstickers, coconut water. And of course the requisite paper products.

I like so many things at Costco.

My number one favorite thing at Costco is their lamb chops! They put all others to shame as they are always perfect in every way. I know it's time to go to Costco when I don't have any left in the freezer.

Costco

Coffee, olive oil, meats, and wine and beer are the reasons I trade at Costco.

It's probably just a coincidence, but the route to the checkout line runs through the candy section. Every time I leave, one of those 16 packs of Altoids and the really big jar of chocolate covered almonds falls into my cart.

Forgot the lamb chops. And the rotisserie chicken.

The store made rotisserie chicken Alfredo is also quite tasty.

I used to really like their big whole fresh chicken wings. Now they have been replaced by fresh "party wings" all jointed without the tips. Grrr, I like the whole ones, as I don't want them cut apart like that. Without the tips, it makes for easier turning on the grill.

The hot dogs and pizza they serve outside so you don't have to grocery shop while hungry! But that was long ago. I gave up my membership when I gave up my insignificant other and my son got married. Shopping at Costco for one person is not cost effective.

I agree with this 100%. I was upset they discontinued the other wings and complained to Costco. They were bigger and more uniform in size too.

Those are definitely some fine looking chops!

That would be a definite negative for me too, as I reserve the tips for stock. It's all irrelevant for me anyway, as there is no Costco east of Denver here, so along with shopping for 2 and having to pay an annual fee for the privilege of being a member, it just doesn't make much sense financially.

Costco to the east of me, Costco to the west. Here we are, an hour away from either of the "closest" locations. I swear whenif we move back to OH, I'll be spotting the Costco locations and choosing where to move based on that!

Sounds like a good plan, CG!

Another one here who doesn't have a Coscto nearby, unfortunately. It's a 200 mile round trip drive. I sure want to go now after reading these posts and seeing pics.

I usually just mainly stock up on paper products, shampoos and conditioners, vitamins, etc. But there's always some goodies and other non perishables that find their way into my cart.

Andy... from one lemon lover to another, have you tried these luscious little cakes from Costco? They are VERY lemony, and to die for. My daughter brought some up when she came to visit on Saturday. The brand name is "Upper Crust" and like kgirl mentioned, I didn't even look at the calories, not that I would care. LOL
