We buy a lot of bulk items there and I am usually shopping once every two weeks. It is a five minute drive and that's only because of two busy intersections!
We did get the agave syrup and a lovely 3 pack of proscuitto packaged with a couple other meats. We blew through a half pack of smoked salmon yesterday, after giving a goody bag to a friend who stopped over. He's in the spice business, but had never been to CC.

I am so envious of all who have a nearby Costco! Wonderful lists! There has been talk of one possibly going up about 45 minutes away, but haven't heard anything new lately.

It's worth the trip for gasoline alone for me! And CostCo is MUCH cheaper than the gas stations around here!

These are SO good. PF, you can process them and sprinkle them on ice cream.

If they don't, come to the island. *gestures to all of the CostCo locations*

Being that I work in the bakery at Costco and I'm there 5 days per week, I'm glad everyone likes it but I am always amazed at the loyalty it receives

Hmm. Group discount?

Has anyone else fallen in love with Paisley Farms Four Bean Salad? Our 64 oz. jar is almost gone. Really fresh tasting, without added bad stuff, and a hint of spiciness.

Our supplies from CC are quickly diminishing...

I miss the days when DH worked at a warehouse and I could say "Oh, grab this before you leave for home!" Now he's at a depot and the nearest warehouse is 15 min away, in the opposite direction of home. We're only 45 minutes away, though. It's close enough to make a trip or 2 a month.

Alas, employees get no discount. They get a free executive membership, though, so it works.

We were going to get truffles on our last trip, but forgot. They were on coupon, too.

Wait, you can get them somewhere on the East Coast?! DH said they weren't available west of the Mississippi. Jealous. That gives me hope for when we move to MI next summer, though...

I was surprised and excited to find the Truffles don't raise my blood sugar too much. I get 2 a day
