apparently they use the same water source as grey goose but they deny that it is grey goose. my vodka drinking friend told me he thinks it is worth the money, I myself am not a vodka drinker.

Sweet lord I hate pa.
Our costcos can't sell that.

I'd laugh quite hard buying costco vodka even if it just a relabel.

Costco rocks!

Their nuts are really good.

Fresh seafood? Nummy and a great price.

Only thing about Costco I dislike is the need to walk by the latest and greatest flat screen TV's on the way to get my frozen pot pies and mango salsa.

Does Coscto sell Habanos in Mexico? I heard Walmart does, but not a big selection at all.

Coscto is the largest seller of 1st Growth wines in the world.

Costco is deadly. It's hard to walk out of there without spending a lot of money. Especially when there are good deals on wine. I just make sure that I never go there on an empty stomach because it helps keep things in check.

A staple in our house. It's pretty chunky though. I put it in the food prosessor and blend it up a bit before serving.

Don't forget the polish with kraut and and diet coke for a buck fifty. Shopping and a cheap lunch all rolled into one.

Plus the free sample appetizers!

If you want to "splurge" for another buck or so you can get one of those fruit and yogurt parfaits with your lunch.

Yep. But I'm always forced to grab a slice of pizza on the way out as well. May be one of the reasons why I'm fat.

Why does healthy have to taste so yucky?

Thats a big grab, those slices are huge.

Places like Costco are the real beneficiaries of times like this. We all seem to be more attuned to frugality.

Default Re: trip to costco

the seasonal "gotta have" for us, other than the 142 other items we normally get there, is the Alexia Garlic Bread. My wife didn't blink an eye when I told her I bought 24 loaves last time I went there. I have not tried the kirkland branded Vodka or the Macallen 18 or 19 rebranded stuff. Almost always, on comparison, the Kirkland branded stuff fares equal to, very well, or better than the branded stuff, which is a difficult challenge to take on.

Their Tuscan Olive Oil is great. We tried it blind with several brands of more expensive Italian olive oils and Kirkland won.

Also a big fan or their Kirkland 10 year Tawny Port, CdP, and Champagne.
