Default Costco shopping - what do you like there?

What are some of your favorite items to get at Costco?

They have great meats and I love looking at their salads and of course they have the best chocolate covered raisins. I'm addicted to theirs. Yum!

Last time I went they had a huge box of oranges for 10.00. What a deal! I had to give some away because there were so many. All of them were fresh and delish and juicy.

I don't shop there, but I have had their Cinnabon cinnamon rolls and they are awesome! Their dog food is good quality, too.

They have the best prices on OTC medicines such as Allegra and Zyrtec. Their private label substitutes for Advil Liquigels, Benadryl, Alleve, etc. are cost-effective and work well. They have good prices on Starbucks Mocha Frapuccino, Nutrigrain bars, Pawley's Island Pimento Cheese. I like that they have samplings so that you can try foods before purchasing. They have the BEST birthday cakes. There are not a lot of choices of cake flavors--white cake with vanilla mousse filling or chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling, but they are delicious and you get a huge half sheet cake for $17.99. The only downside to their bakery is that they don't have a phone in the bakery and you have to call the deli/meat dept and wait for them to get someone from the bakery to the phone. The easiest way to order a cake is to take a blank order form and keep copies and FAX the order in a day and a half before you need it. The decorator leaves at 2:30 each day but you can pick up the cake any time.

I like Costco over Sam's but Sam's membership is $15 less per year than Costco. Also Sam's offers another $15 off membership for military and college students. So Sam's could cost as low as $25 compared to $55 at Costco.

BTW, for you Costco shopaholics, there will be a TV show on how Costco was created and performs so well on CNBC starting April 26.
