Guys - we have already had a thread like this that we had to move to Shopping because it started to be more about non food items and purchasing other than just Food and Drink. I've been having to moderate this thread more than normal. If off topic posts continue we will have to either close or send this over to Shopping. Thank you.

Just food?

Costco sells an outstanding, real vanilla ice cream. It's not cheap, but it is worth the price.

I buy Gluten-free crackers, fruit, lettuce, butter, cheese, almond meal, dried cranberries

I buy nuts, chocolate chips, "salad goodies", meaning artichoke hearts, pickled peppers, stuffed olives, bean salad, pickled beets, pickled mushrooms.... they sell a cream cheese stuffed small red pepper that is wonderful.

The meat and seafood are good. The costco polish sausage is good. I used to buy spices but the selection has become rather limited.

The gluten-free frozen pizza is good, although I have recently found an alternate elsewhere.

That's my go-to source for peanut M&Ms and cashews.

I love the dried organic figs. They are a wonderful snack.
I also like the cans of albacore tuna, & the battered cod. The cod is Trident brand, & is excellent, they also make the fish sticks, which I also buy if we have enough room in the freezer.

We recently bought the garlic and pepper chicken wings and legs at Costco, and they are terrific. About $17 and we get two nights meals out of them. 20 minutes one side 15 the other side, and done. Moist and meaty, better than I have had at any restaurant.

Liked them so much we have bought them twice so far.

In reference to the Swiss bitter chocolate, where was it packaged, made? Does it contain soy at all?

Where are the almonds & pecans from?

Am I to understand that you are not able to buy the European bread anymore?

Finally, are you able to find in your location any European flour?

Thanks in advance!
We love the individually wrapped frozen salmon filets (box does say wild caught). It is $17.99 for 6 good sized pieces and the marinade on them is delicious.

We lived too far from the nearest Costco to buy refrigerated or frozen items. But we always got walnuts, granola cereal, and HUGE bags of baking soda to treat our pool and water tank.

Hopefully our next house will be located close enough to Costco that we can indulge in the prepared treats.

I never seem to like the samples, though. Maybe a different Costco will have better ones.
