just curious as to why? Costco salmon is a little over $11/lb. You can goto loblaws/superstore and get it for under $10/lb or even less with price matching. The only difference I have seen is that the costco fillets are larger.
Costco has the more consistently fresh product. More often than not, passing by the fish department at Superstore is an unpleasant experience due to the smell of fish gone bad.

This.
Although Asian markets are even worse in terms of smells but their fish is fresher than anyone else.

Larger is the reason.
This is the reason I buy a lot of things at Costco in terms of food items.
Fish is larger. Fruit is larger.
You get more finished product for the same amount of labor.

Does Costco still sell camembert? Or only brie? I bought camembert a year ago, but I can't find it anymore around Ottawa.

Newest Costco sales post by tyanwong says yes, at least in Richmond.
Part number is clearly listed, you could just call to find out.

Their cheese selection is somewhat based on what I guess is availability and demand. My local location will go from having 5 different kinds of brie one week, to 2 the next. And other varieties such as camembert show up occasionally.

Thanks, guess I just need to keep an eye out each time I go.

Anyone tried the Lundberg wild Blend rice? Thinking about switching to brown rice after I finish my white rice, but then I noticed this product. Wild rice is supposed to be even healthier than brown rice. This one is gluten free (irrelevant for me).

It's delicious. I like it as a side with sauteed red peppers, mushrooms and parsley mixed in. It's got a lot of interesting, crunchy texture to it.

I find it has too much flavour and texture to use in things like fried rice etc.

Well, chewy. I used it to make a lentil, brown rice, brown bread, egg, onion, mushroom "meatloaf"; beef barley soup with brown rice instead; and lentil soup with small brown lentils, this rice, mushrooms, sherry. I.e., it also makes me think of mushrooms.

Too chewy IMO to pair with something delicate like fish but stands up well alongside a good chew of beef.

Yup, wouldn't pair it with fish, but great with a steak. Or pork chops.
