Buy this at Costco
One of their best deals daily
I think it's around $20-$22/kg there
Also I prefer the grano over the reggiano
Some locations have both

Good deal OP, I don't really use that much cheese, so this amount, for this price is great.

I picked up grano instead of reggiano the other day, it changed my life.
I have been missing out on that cheese all my life.

How do you guys finish the entire kilo of cheese. Haven't figured out a way to store it. Maybe freezer?

It will last a long time in the refrigerator (as the stilltasty link above indicates).

We always buy the 800 g chunks of Grana Padano or Parmegiano from Superstore. The price has gone up some over the past couple of years but I think they are still a little more than $20.

Why even bother with such comparison?

It's always interesting to learn about other options. I'm sure a decent amount of users here do visit the US. I for one never considered buying this in the US before but now I actually might.

Fridge is fine. I keep it in a rubber container. Last one lasted a year and a half with no sign of expiry.

I like the one from Costco.

For sure and I'm only criticizing, as deals are always better in the US.

With this quote :facepalm:
Then there’s fraud. At the headquarters of the Parmigiano-Reggiano Consortium in the city of Reggio Emilia, president Nicola Bertinelli, whose family has made Parmigiano at their farm since 1895, asked me to take a guess: out of 10 wheels of Parmigiano-Reggiano sold in the world, how many are real?

“One?” I guessed, expecting I’d be too cynical.

“Exactly. One,” he said.

After all, there’s a great deal of money in Parmigiano. When the US’s wholesale chain Costco sold wheels for $900, it made headlines – not least because it was a bargain.
In Japan, the hand can be used like a knife.
But this method doesn't work with a tomato...

How can PC even use the name Parmigiano Reggiano? When you've had the real stuff, its like comparing a Ferrari to a Nissan
