Okay, it's only the two of us in the house, and we don't eat mayo or peanut butter in any large quantity (or really at all for that matter). So why do we go to Costco? For the wine, meat, and occasional cheese. That's right, you heard me, we buy wine there. If there are any wine lovers out there, if you know your stuff, you can find really good prices at this food warehouse. After all, Costco was the upmarket answer to Sam's Club. However proletareate the idea of bulk food is, they somehow have knowledgeable buyers that seek out premium products.
Anyhoo, as for cheese, it's not bad. They have a large variety, some artesenal (not as good as the stuff you'd find at boutiques) but much more everyday table cheese. They work if you eat them very regularly, as we do most nights before dinner. We've purchased good Compte, Parmegianno, and herbed goat varieties there. (By the way, we did buy a great Coolea and Garanzia from Cowgirl Creamery--more on that in another post.)
These were good quality clams. They all opened up...meaning none were dead. They tasted sweet and not too fishy. Surprisingly fresh and tender.
