Not a food find, but they are selling Cuisinart hard anodized 5.5 qt skillets (w/lid) for $24.99. That's half the price on Amazon. I love this skillet, it's huge and the nonstick is great. Barely requires any oil, and so easy to clean. Of course, now I want all other sizes, too, which aren't available at Costco.

My roommate just got a membership and the canadian site anyway has 10 lbs of vegan fake meat assortment we can order it online for 119$ and it is delivered to the door.

Haven't done the comparison but 12$/lb seems pricey, but then again depending on the style of fake meat maybe it's on par with the smaller packs from other grocery stores.


eta: Just check and the PC Vegan chicken breasts are roughly 2lbs for 13$(give or take) so the costco thing isn't a super good deal but perhaps depending on the prices of the other variety of vegan meats else ware it could be?

There site form the look of it offered 10 lbs for 119$ for just ground, just chicken or a mixture which seems to include a mix of vegan chicken, ground, sausage links etc etc

Sad letdown -- a coworker brought in Aussie Bites, and said they were vegan. I looked at the label and had 2. I didn't realize until much later that butter is one of the top ingredients! I guess I missed it because of the random bold items on the ingredients list (for some reason canola oil is in bold). Extra sad because they were good... Now I want to find a recipe.

Today my store had 2-lb bags of those sea salt and turbinado sugar chocolate covered almonds like TJ's sells for $10 and 48-oz jars of original Vegenaise for $8. I didn't buy either and I feel like I let someone down.

That "snacking chocolate" stuff, that's fair trade dark chocolate bark type pieces with either pumpkin seeds or almonds and sea salt, is so amazing and I feel like crying when they don't have it. The way they call it "snacking chocolate" really convinces me that I should be eating it all day long.

The worst thing about that chocolate is that it is so cheap, but Wegmans has better flavors at 4x the cost.

Aw... I got the almonds and sea salt ones instead, now I wonder if I should have bought the bark...

Combination of tasty find and sad letdown - I have been buying a vegan protein powder from Costco for probably a year now, Complete Green Protein by Leanfit Naturals. It seems that Costco is in the process of replacing that with a similar product from Vega. While I love a lot of Vega's stuff, the new product doesn't taste as good, comes in a smaller container and is more expensive. Not impressed.

I just got a big pack of Hail Merry lime mini tarts from our Costco! They are out of Dallas so I'm not sure if they would have them outside of TX, but they are totally delicious. And another bag of Bark Thins, of course.

We get sprouted lentils, blackbean pasta,organic berries and chia seeds at our CostCo. We also got good guacamole and rice chips. Yum!

Sad let down : of the 3 melons we bought 2 went rotten before we could use them, within a week. Not impressed.

I got my husband the Pita Pal brand Organic Balela. It's a salad of chickpeas, black beans and spices. He loved it however I don't like parsley so I couldn't do it. It's $7.99 or so and he made it last for the bulk of his lunch for 3 days. It's near the tofu and salsa in the fridge section.

You could definitely make it for cheaper, but convenience won this time.

My husband and I went to Costco today and were surprised to find four different varieties of Gardein in the freezer section. We've been buying the mandarin chick'n there for a long time. But now they also the fishless filets, crispy chicken tenders, and Szechuan beef. We bought one of each!

WHOA cheap Vegannaise?! I haven't seen it in our NJ store, but a girl can dream.

We've been getting the Wholly Guacamole which freezes really well and is all avocado and vinegar so its very yummy. After a few bouts of buying avocados that went bad within minutes, I think its just cheaper to buy and freeze guac.

My Coscto was restocking the books this morning and I saw Keep it Vegan by Aine Carlin. I've had it for a couple of weeks but I haven't made anything yet. From flipping through, the recipes look good but pretty basic.

I went to Costco last week and got so many vegan samples! Nutzo butter (a nut butter blend), vegan macaroons, three kinds of kale chips, a garbanzo- black bean salad, and one other thing I can't remember. So fun!

I stocked up on my usual supply of bolanis and Hodo Yuba strips. My costco has Orgain brand protein powder and it looks good, but I have a lot of protein powder already at home to go through first.

one thing that bums me out about Costco (or maybe it's just my local one!) is that the only flour they sell is bleached. I bake pretty much all of our rolls/bagels so like to have a ton of flour on hand but I feel pretty sketchy about bleached flour! It all says "For Restaurants and Hotels" on it too.
