Costco's Best Kirkland Brand Products

I saw this article this morning and found it interesting:

The 13 Best Kirkland Signature Products at Costco | Kitchn

I already buy all but one item on the list, but to be honest, I had no idea that Costco even carried Parchment Paper... I will be looking for that!

I didn't know about the parchment paper either. I've been using Reynolds and found it much better than Wilton. I'm going to give the KS brand.

We've been buying their EVOO, parchment paper, and some booze for years.
I didn't realize the parchment paper were a seasonal item. This last roll have lasted quite some time.

Y'know roadfix, I didn't know that part about the study done on the Olive Oil and I too have been buying it for as long as I can remember (I looked it up and Costco first opened in Honolulu in 1988, it was thrilling!).
And it's true that you'd be surprised how much Olive Oil you use.
I have a bottle of standard Vegetable Oil in my pantry,
but I use that strictly for a baking ingredient or frying.

I recently bought some of the EVOO, and it is as good as any I've used. I buy their bacon. It's good, not the best, but It is a good buy. Kirkland nuts are really good.

In addition, I really like Kirkland spices. I also buy the big restaurant rolls of Kirkland Foil, which is made by Reynolds. I don't use a lot of parchment paper, but I'll have to check that out when I need to buy some.

Food aside, I use a lot of batteries, and stock up on the Kirkland brand. I hate to say it, but I also have a few Kirkland shirts -- they are a good value, IMO.

BAHAHAHA!
Casey, our Nephew has advised his wife that she is NOT to dress any member of their family in Costco clothes!
My favorite tee-shirts are Kirkland brand! Also DH's shorts, oh and their socks aren't too shabby either. I also picked up a pair of Reebok shoes and Winter indoor (I think their Dearfoam) slippers.
Oh wait! We were talking about Kirkland Brand... carry on.

Not Kirkland, but we use Reynolds 18" heavy duty foil, mostly used when BBQ'ing or in the kitchen oven.

They are the butt of more than a few jokes, but when you work around old cars, like I do, you don't want to spend a lot of money on shirts. You are going to ruin them, eventually. Old cars leak every kind of fluid ever used in cars. Hey, I've been pulled aside by the TSA because my clothing failed the "swab" test for explosives.

Vodka. I always drank Tito's, which is organic and handmade. But the Kirkland vodka gives it a run for the money, and at less than half the price. It's good enough to drink in a martini or on ice, without a mixer.
