Product Additions, Changes and Costco Price List Update
If any of you ever shop at Costco, you know they have several staples. Foods you can rely on. You can shop confidently there knowing they will have eggs, and milk, and cheese…beer, and water…cat litter, and olive oil. Or you could pick up a roasted chicken for $5 or Costco pizza for less than $10 (which Costco has never upped the prices). Well there are several items over the years we have to question, where did they go??
I sure miss those organic raw tortillas and the short-lived organic coconut sugar. The latest for me was the Kirkland Signature Chocolate Chips (which I thought was a staple). I honestly didn’t know how much I relied on those babies in making my all-time favorite granola bars or no-bake oatmeal cookie bars, or Reece’s Peanut Butter Bars. I didn’t realize how frugal that big bag of beauty really was worth, especially after going back to buying those tiny 10 and 12 ounce bags of chocolate chips. Over the summer I kept wondering ‘where in the world is the chocolatey goodness?’ After filling out a comment card and following months and months with a deficit of KS Chocolate Chips, they finally materialized. On one of my price updating sprees I found them. The chocolate morsels magically appeared. I had to blink twice to make sure I wasn’t lost in a dream (or lost in Costco).
Some new favorites with a hope they stick around are organic onions! We’ve had organic yellow onions at our Costco for a few months. And then on my last trip I saw and promptly picked up an 8 pound bag of organic red onions for $5.99! Seriously surprised! Costco, please keep these around!
Another new grocery item they have is Organic Romaine Lettuce. Finally! I’m so excited to see these. Pack of six for $3.99.
On my last I also saw Vermont Village Organic Apple Cider Vinegar for $6.49 for 2-32 ounce bottles-almost half the price of ONE 32 ounce bottle. Raw and unfiltered with the MOTHER. I haven’t tried it yet because I don’t need it yet, but WOH! That’s on my list.
Seasonally the big 32 ounce bag of cranberries is back. I’m excited to make a host of cranberry delights. I just made cranberry orange sauce. The bag was only $3.49-so much cheaper than any store. How do they do that? Buying power.
In updating the Costco price list, prices continually fluctuate. A lot of things move up or down by $.10 or $.20, here or there. The biggest change, and for the good, was the drop in almond prices. A 3 pound bag of almonds dropped over $6.00. And when almond prices drop, that means almond flour prices drop, almond milk and almond butter drops too. Check out those prices here. And since we are talking about almonds, they also replaced their almond milk with organic almond milk. Very excited about this one!
I always appreciate the new organic foods Costco incorporates. They’ve also changed the dried blueberries and cherries to organic and added organic ginger. Thank you Costco!
