I just went and googled soybleu and this is on their webpage :

"We expect our full site uploaded later in 2011. Thanks for your patience."

I had to come back and check the date of this thread!

It's the gardein orange chickenless in giant bags, and they have two big packets of sauce instead of the one little one per bag.

It was awesome, and at Costco for about the blink of an eye. I can get the same thing at WF or TJ's but the big bags were so nice..

And Soybleu is sold at my local WF - http://www.chezbettay.com/pages/dips_dr ... heese.html it's one of those buy once in a great while products.. Basically like a very flavorful, extremely firm tofu, but I woudn't say it's exactly like bleu cheese or anything. But it's good crumbled on stuff.

We finally found the Amy's soups tonight at our Costco! And the vegetable broth is back, thank goodness. Must be seasonal because it went away in the spring. They also had a vegan Tastybite offering in addition to their usual Madras Lentils with dairy. The multipack of different flavored individual servings of Wheat Thins didn't feature any flavors with dairy, which is a rarity. (I won't be eating those.) We also found gluten free pancake/waffle mix and a 5 lb bag of gluten free flour blend for $8.99, which is a smokin' deal.

The pancake mix = perfect gluten free pancakes! I subbed 1/4 cup applesauce for the 1 egg the instructions called for. Yum! And very easy.

Love making my own beans, but when I don't have time or don't plan ahead I use canned. They have organic BPA-free lined cans of black beans and garbanzo beans for less than at the grocery store. $6.79 for 8.

Through Coscto online (at least here in Canada) you can order "Nellie's Laundry Soda". It's made here in Canada, environmental friendly and good for HE washers. This stuff is amazing! It comes in a huge bucket that does 1100 loads and it only cost me $38.99 including free delivery. I also bought their dryer balls and scented sticks for an equally awesome deal online. I won't have to buy laundry soap for years.

Costco carries Ecos laundry detergent - it is our go to, a big jug is $12.99, cheaper even than the Kirkland brand. I would like them to bring back the huge things of Method hand soap...

i found this

"Well, I emailed Costco and asked if their Kirkland Signature cleaning and beauty products contain animal by-products and the response I got was "None of the KS products contain animal by-products." The bottles already state that the products are not tested on animals."

I bought apricots there last year - forgot about those until I looked at the dried cherries last week.

The apricots had "natural flavour" (or something) in them and they were awful. I bought them mainly for my son who likes apricots as a snack and he wouldn't eat them. They really were disgusting compared to plain dried apricots. The dried cherries has the same ingredient listed on the bag so I did not buy them.

Saw a few things today that were new (to me) at Friar's Rd:

- Indian appetizer variety pack (Sukhi's)
- frozen French bread loaf 10 pack (I assume the kind where it's half-baked)
- Spring rolls

I'm fairly sure all were vegan with pretty normal ingredients, but was reading in a hurry in the store so double check obvs..

Still no sign of any gardein, field roast, or burger type items in stock, but I am hopeful for the holidays...

Costco bras are my favorite. Twenty dollars for a pack of two. They are so comfy, fit my boobs, and come in decent colors.
I got a giant thing of Naked green juice that i really like. I haven't bought Naked juice before, but this one is super tasty. It's great in my smoothies, and with vodka.

Even at my smallest size, Costco bras were too small for me. I do have some pajama pants from there that I love.

Got some of the usuals and some new stuff this time.

big boxes of canned tomatoes
giant tub of Sabra pine nut hummus
4 pack of Wholly Guacamole
3 pack of yellow mustard that my husband was super excited about
Amy's minestrone & lentil soups for about half the regular grocery store price
veggie straws
2 pack of agave nectar for about half the usual price
10 lb bag of brown basmati rice. gd.

The only meat replacements I ever see at our Costco are the Malibu Gardenburgers, which are really good, but we still have some from our last trip. And non-vegan Morningstar stuff. They also have a few different types of soy milk, but we mostly use almond, and I don't think I've seen unsweetened anyway.

Our Costco only has the aseptic unsweetened almond milk. Check the end cap of the refrigerated aisle.

Ooooh, i love the pajama pants! A lot of my clothes are from Costco, actually. I recently bought some lacy pantaloons that i love. I have a few lovely cardigans (same style, different colors), pants, socks, and the nice long camis. My mom really liked the men's dress shirts, so she got some for my brother and a purple-black striped one for my boy. He looks smashing in it.
I also love the blankets they have. I think every time i go, there's another supersoft blanket i want to buy.

Tried the spring rolls and Indian appetizer mix and both are good!

The Indian appetizer mix is REALLY good. It has pakora, vadai, potato and pea patties, and two kinds of chutney - cilantro and tomato. Slightly spicy but really not very, which with a toddler is a good thing. You get 12 of each type of appetizer. They would be very easy and quick to make for a party! The potato patties stuck to the pan a little, so I'd use parchment next time. But I'm totally buying those again.. The appetizers (not the chutney) are in resealable bags, so that's convenient.

Spring rolls are really good, though it's SUPER annoying that they are individually wrapped. I guess if you were single and just wanted one or two with your meal that would be nice, but how many of those people shop at Costco? Other than that I liked them a lot. Wouldn't mind a bit more sauce.

Late reply so you might not need to know anymore, but one of the bloggers I follow is from Long Island and has mentioned Dave's Killer Bread many times - maybe Costco is no-go, but it might be out there somewhere!
