[I’ve got a guest post today from a fellow Costco fan from Reno, Nevada. She’s a fairly new Costco member, since 2012 but has seen the value and found a few great products to share with everyone. These are some great suggestions and some of them might even be the perfect thing to pick up for your holiday parties or get togethers.
Also, if you’re planning to do a bit of last minute online shopping at Costco.com, you’ve got to get your orders completed by 11:59 PST for delivery by Christmas!]
Recently, on a trip to my local Costco I found a few different items that I am pretty excited about and would love to share with fellow Costco enthusiasts. I enjoy each for its own purpose, and they’re all quite different.
First up is Nature’s Bakery Fig Bar. Growing-up I was always a fan of the nutrition bar. They’re conveniently packaged for totting around, and are so simple for an on-the-go snack. The down side? The traditional bars of my childhood are packed with sugar and perhaps not the purest ingredients, so I gave them up years ago. This is why I was so excited to stumble upon Nature’s Bakery bars. They have the same convenient packaging to be thrown in a purse, desk drawer, or backpack, but they are also made with no GMO, no dairy, 0G trans fat, dairy free and they’re cholesterol free. I hate to use the phrase, but delicious and nutritious definitely applies here. Costco price: $8.99 for a variety pack.
I am also a huge fan of coffee dates for catching up with friends, or just some quiet time between my coffee cup and myself. Now I have found the perfect coffee compliment that my friends have also fallen for: Donsuemor Madeleines. They’re a rich, buttery French-inspired dessert that can be eaten alone, or maybe dipped into a warm mug. Costco price: $6.99 for a 28-pack.
Again, I like to entertain and I found the perfect wine at Costco to share with my friends who also tend to be wine snobs. From the Napa Valley winery Whitehall Lane, Costco carries two delicious varietal: Sauvignon blanc for the white wine drinkers and Merlot for the red. They’re affordable yet suitable to the fancy taste buds of my wino friends. Sauvignon Blanc: approximately $14. Merlot: approximately $20.
