yeah pretty much and probably cheaper to diy since its so piss easy to put out some cheese on a board that theres no value in buying a pre-decided flight of cheeses.

Trader Joes has a great selection of a varierty of hq cheese (that comes and goes sadly, sometimes they have neater interesting stuff and then discontinue it :mad:) for cheap if you want to put a platter out with a lot of different cheeses, but not have like an entire wheel of it still left over. Costco often has some good and unique ones, but some of them are big and they come and go: like they used to really good haberno cheeses and black diamond cheddar stuff, some amazing smoked gouda, but it seems to be gone at the moment. At least they consistency have good brie

TJs double cream gouda and their $6 chianti for the loving win. I'm drunk right now and really regretting that I don't have any double cream gouda. Yes, I AM fat, why do you ask?

Well, if the 1.5lbs on the cheese pizza is any indication...

Wait... is that true...? The cheese pizza from the food court has 1.5 pounds of cheese? I don't think i've ever actually bought the cheese, i always roll with the combo.

yeah the, the whole $9.99 pizza has 1.5 lbs of cheese.

i actually think cheese is their best pizza, the pepperoni is just some gross greasy cesspool that slides right off in some cheesy meaty raft of grease the moment you pick it up. i noticed there seems to be huge variations in cooking. if its actually cooked long enough where its a delicious browned cheese with crispy pepperoni that has curled upwards and the crust is cooked through and more solid, its great. but seems like they rush the cooking just a little too short and it's always a tad into disappointing territory--and overall a little overrated but fine enough in a pizza pinch.

So maybe 2 months ago I signed up for Costco and got the credit card

Good:
Hot dogs
Pizza insanely good and big for just $10
$120 executive membership but got $60 gift card and if I donít get $60 in cash back on credit card in a year they give me the difference so itís basically free first year
Gas super cheap
Staff really happy and friendly
Feel like a upper middle class person shopping there
Cookies, muffins, cakes and cheesecakes
Normandy and chicken breasts for lunch and dinner saves me money and is healthy and yummy

Bad:
Insane amount of mega ultra fat people everywhere
Sometimes canít justify or finish eating huge stuff like massive peanut butter tubs or 4lbs of cherries in one go
Soda and some produce is more expensive there
Jim Sinegal retired so I doubt Iíll get to shake his hand
Only air conditioner they had was a $400 one

All in all, A+ choice for the gas price and rewards alone, rest is just bonus

This is a crime against proper cheese packaging. There is no way this cheese tastes good or like it is even supposed to. Also those are probably $4-6 pieces of cheese so you arenít even saving much money compared to, say, picking out freshly cut cheeses that you like with a cheesemonger at Whole Foods. (Which is my job and I love it a lot and I WILL fight you about cheese.)

yeah I like cheese but I've always passed that item mostly because of the packaging. It just feels wrong.

Also most cheese I buy at costco ends up getting thrown out because we don't eat it fast enough.

Well I'm also working on the giant bag of cheese curds and that takes a while. I'm limiting myself to about 2oz portions now and that's not a lot of cheese to eat in one sitting. For me.

How often does Costco rotate its inventory? I could have sworn they used to carry the exact brand of flea/tick and heartworm pills for our pup, but that doesn't appear to be the case anymore.

Products disappear from stores fairly constantly. If you keep your eyes open you'll see lots of items with asterisks on the price tags which indicates they will not be restocked.

Not sure if this is helpful, but a quick search popped up these two pages. If you have an item number you can call a local warehouse and they can check if they stock it or if any other stores in the area stock it.

My Costco always carries Frontline. If they don't have it on the floor, sometimes they keep it behind the pharmacy counter. Maybe ask the pharmacy people if they have it.

Our target cheese cost is $5-7 per chunk, so IDK what is up at your store. Also, you can literally try any cheese you want. Itís our job to get the cheese into your mouth. Also at my WF we have an ďunder $5Ē bin which we fill daily with an assortment of whatever we cut. Sounds like you maybe need a better run WF specialty department!

a few groceries around me do this, QFC if you've got those around, they're like a rebranded Kroger. You can get little cheeses for like 3 bucks and it's perfect to try them out
