One of our local hospitals in town happens to be across the street from a Costco. One night while visiting the Costco, I told my husband that if I were ever hospitalized for any reason, I would want a "Costco View" room in that hospital and a pair of binoculars. I would pass the time by checking out all the things that people were buying. I love to see what people buy and I am such a sucker for trying new products. I am any food marketers dream, if they change the flavor, texture, or packaging I am more likely to buy that product. I get bored with the same old stuff that we usually get, and I would love your tips on things that you like to buy that might be new to me. Please leave a comment and let me know the things you buy at Costco or at the store that I need to try!
My Costco top 10 list
(in no particular order)
#1 Tortilla land uncooked tortillas (these are SOOO worth the extra effort of cooking yourself, but I have found that they get soggy in casseroles i.e. enchiladas, but they are great for all other recipes.)
#2 Marion berry Jam-- This jam is made with sugar and not corn syrup and it's so good I've been known to sneak a spoonful.
#3 Individually frozen tilapia fillets--I buy these and just zap them in the microwave with lemon for a great healthy lunch or dinner. Also great for oven fried fish sticks (see recipe on site)
#4 TastyWok Orange Chicken---My neighbor turned me on to this and now it is a regular go to dinner. The box contains two family sized servings ( it's not the individual rice bowls) You bake the chicken in the oven, top with orange sauce and serve over rice. It's as good as take out, I promise!
#5 Dried Mangoes. These are evil and I try not to buy them because I will eat the WHOLE bag at once, but they are delicious.
#6 Salsa Fresca. A salsa made with mostly roasted red peppers. It's good on chips, eggs, any Mexican dish, and mixed into rice.
#7 Edamame--the nutrition the kid friendliness cannot be beat
#8 Rice works chips...I can't remember what flavor they were, but everyone in the house gobbled them up
#9 Kirkland Vegetarian Lasagna
#10 Kirkland Ravioli
