Costco Products You Enjoy

We've all gotten some great tips on especially good Trader Joe's products via another thread. I thought it might be a good idea to do something similar for Costco.

Recently, K-Girl recommended the Coconut Bites. We bought some today and they are delicious and addictive.

In their most recent flyer, Costco discounted their Myer Lemon Thin Cookies. As I am a freak for lemon desserts, I put a box of these in the cart today. They are also very good. I'll be buying them again.

Everyone knows Costco has the BEST rotisserie chicken.

What are some of your favorites?

So glad that you and yours enjoyed those Coconut Bites, ono, yeah?
Now, I WILL need to look for those Meyer Lemon Thins, we love Meyer Lemons!

As for other Costco products that we enjoy is the consistent quality in their meat counter. New York Strip Steaks are a fav in our house.

We can't wait to get settled in our temporary digs and purchase our new grill.

The cheese and charcuterie counter. Avocado oil...Best butter prices anywhere. Seafood fest. The produce is fantastic. I could go on. I like the Kirkland brand, it has never failed me.

Salmon spread cream cheese. Mango juice is to die for. Frozen portions rainbow trout super convenient and yummy to make. The flowers are cheaper than many other places. I love their baking potatoes.

I will second the meats. Always tender and great tasting.
I don't like their shrimp and only bought it one time. It tastes just like the pond (muddy) they were raised.
Kirkland cooking spray beats the brand names hands down and is half the price.

I buy most of my meat at Costco. Steaks and ground beef, Ribs, pork loins and tenderloins, Racks of lamb. Really good quality. They used to have great chicken wings but their current suppliers produce isn't as good.

We also buy their TP, vitamins/supplements, pain relievers, allergy meds, etc. I buy my printer ink and paper there. SO gets her reading glasses there.

I bought a Kirkland Signature 13-piece tri-ply cookware set 15 years ago that is still going strong. I buy small electric appliances.

You get the idea, just about everything.

On the flip side, I don't care for their cooking spray as it foams up too much when sprayed.

I fill a prescription there that isn't covered by my insurance.

I don't particularly enjoy them, but I always purchase these items out of necessity.

Olive oil
Marathon toilet paper, 40 roll pack. I purchase many cartons when on sale.
Kirkland paper plates, large, med, & small.
Tin foils, regular and heavy duty
