    Default Cheese from Costco

    Went to Costco yesterday and picked up a 2lb block of aged cheddar
    cheese. The brand is Kerrydale Reserve and it is from Ireland. Cost
    was $5.99 and it is some of the best sharp cheddar I've ever had.
    And...what a buy!!

    Great price! 2 lbs for $5.99 or do you mean $5.99/pound?

    A Costco is being built near me. I belong to Sam's Club already, so I am
    not sure what I'll do when Costco opens. I hear they're a notch up from
    Sam's Club.

    I have both Sam's and Costco memberships. I have a Sam's 10 minutes away
    from me, but the nearest Costco is about an hour but is on a route I get
    to about once a month. There is a fair amount of overlap between the
    two, but Costco does seem to be a bit better on many items quality wise.
    If they were equidistant from me I would probably drop Sam's.

    CostCo carries quality. Sams doesn't.

    Bull****. Only the dwarf would think canned beans at Sams are
    different from those sold at Costco. All those big box stores carry
    the same low end to medioce food products, none are gourmet... they
    don't even sell decent bread... that's why he eats that low end white
    bread I'd be ashamed to feed critters.

    I'm afraid I have to generally agree with Sqwertz. I have both Sam's and
    Costco memberships and while there are many products that are common to
    both, Costco typically has higher end products and a larger selection of
    specialty food items. Even for some of the items that are in common
    there are differences, such as Classico pasta sauce where both carry
    3pks of Classico, Sam's carries just the tomato/basil sauce, while
    Costco has a mixed variety 3pk.

    Bull****, indeed. CostCo sells excellent fresh baked bread from La
    Brea bakery, baked in store and still warm. And everybody who shops
    there knows that. I just ate my last demi baguette last night.

    And you just admitted that Sam's sells ****ty bread.

    I'll agree, it's great cheese but, you got a fantastic buy.
    We purchased some at our local Costco (Southern Ontario, Canada) and,
    although I can't remember the exact price, I know it was more than
    $5.99 and that was for a 250 gram piece.
    We're going to Costco tomorrow so I'll be sure to check.

    I love that cheese, but at my Costco it's $5.99 a pound, not a block.
    The two pound bricks are $11.98 Still quite a bit less expensive than
    the cheese shop for the same brand of cheese.

    We had memberships to both but, unfortunately Sam's didn't last too
    long in Canada. I guess they couldn't compete with Costco up here.
    There was some overlap in products but, Sam's had some items that we
    liked and can no longer get.
    Also, Sam's had some unbelievable mark downs that Costco doesn't
    offer.
    One example, Sam's had a couple of skids of Lexmark wireless 4 in 1
    printers for $38.00 that were complete with full size XL ink
    cartridges. Those printers cost less than a pair of the same
    cartridges for my printer so I bought three printers.
    We did save considerably more than the cost of membership at both
    places and while we do shop regularly at Costco, there are things
    about Sam's that we miss.

    My suggestion is that you get the Costco membership early on because
    you'll have less competition from other shoppers until the membership
    builds up. I bought a membership to Sam's Club just so I could get some
    tires. I hate to buy tires from Costco because they're so busy and you
    have to wait so long.

    I think that Costco has a better selection of stuff but the truth is
    that I'd just go to whichever one is nearer or more convenient.

    I bought some Dubliner cheese from Costco and it was tasty. It was about
    9 bucks for 2lbs. I got the one with ale and it had crunchy crystals in
    it. Neat!

    To me most of the difference was the distance to the store. Once I got
    there it was mostly variation by brand carrying much the same sort of
    items. When we moved closer to Sams we ended up letting our Costco
    membership lapse. Then another move where Costco was closer we let our
    Sams carb lapse and switched back.

    I've tried that Kerrygold from my local Costco but Balderson's is at least
    as good and Costco sells large lumps of that.

    I have noticed Costco has reduced the shelf space in half for printer inks.
    If the trend is like me who now owns an iPad or other touch device,
    printing anything is becoming obsolete. The ink on both of my printers have
    dried up. I will not be replacing them. If I need something printed which
    is unlikely, I will go to Office Max or the local library.

    Pasta sauce in a jar is high quality food?

    I think I will stick to the produce store for quality. I like Costco for
    the junk foods like: Hersey candy bars, Milky Ways, Snickers... My mistake
    snickers is a high quality candy bar. Sometimes a case of Gatorade... Yes,
    I love junk foods and Costco's specializes in junk foods
