COSTCO treasure hunting

I have noticed that many of us on this forum have access to Costco. I keep finding goodies there that I like to share with my friends. Here are a couple:

Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce (Fischer & Weiser #236438), 40 oz. bottle: my mom turned me on to this one. Unbelievable on pork or chicken. Keeps forever on the shelf.

Panko Bread Crumbs (Kikkoman), 2 one pound packages/box: I've started using this for a replacement to regular bread crumbs. Great for crispy fried chicken or shrimp.

Anyone have some similar finds?

You betcha!

Dried Shiitake mushrooms: Shiitake-Ya brand, item #26211

I'm a big Panko fan too for the record - Use it all the time to make my own chicken (nuggets) strips

Son watching McDonald's commercial: Dad, what part of the chicken is the 'nugget'?

Re: COSTCO treasure hunting

I don't have access to Costco but I order a LOT from Amazon from my computer. Most orders over $25 are delivered free right to the home or dockside. Just received my 40-quart box of dry milk; can't find the 20-quart boxes any more at WalMart. I also get my Emergen-C from Amazon. It's my daily breakfast drink but it's also a good mixer with rum. Also the lemon-lime flavor is good for keeping apples from browning or for a shot of citrus in a recipe. I just put stuff in my shopping cart as I go and don't place the order until I'm up to the Free Shipping level. They also have some sort of membership deal for free shipping on any order but I haven't needed to join.

The dried seaweed is excellent.

Re: COSTCO treasure hunting

Yeah, my son is a seaweed fan too. I like their dried sweet cherries. And their steelhead is the best anywhere. I really like that Ivar's clam chowder, but it gets me fat fast....

Re: COSTCO treasure hunting

We picked up one of those fold up carts from there couple of weeks a go, great for lugging groceries/laundry down the docks, folds up nice and pretty sturdy too.

Re: COSTCO treasure hunting

We live across the street from a Costco here in downtown Vancouver, so yes we score the best deals. I love their shepards pie, so for about 12 bucks, I eat for about a week. We sometimes find their processed foods very salty, but enjoy the fresh seafood, particularly wild sockeye salmon, when they have it. BTW, the Tuxedo cake is so good, I'm gaining weight just writing about it. 1 litre fresh cream, $1.99, just went up from 1.79, but about 1/2 the price anywhere else.

One of those red canvas ones? I used on of those on my cruise and it was great. I had that thing so loaded down with groceries some days, I still can't believe the wheels never fell off.

The seaweed is intended to be eaten as is as a snack. It is also really good wrapped around seasoned rice for lunch. My kids love it.

Re: COSTCO treasure hunting

Cheers - it's just that we have lots of seaweed around here that's free to a good home .

Maybe I just need to discover the unique properties that make Jersey Seaweed the best in the world - and then set up a website .

Keep an eye on CF monthly vendor offers......
