How dare they stock products that people ask for (and buy)!

If you don't want it, don't buy it, carry on down the aisle.
What's the big deal?

Because it promotes stupid diet fads that don't work.

So? It's not like they wouldn't just buy stupid crap elsewhere.

Plus it's not a diet fad to some people. Gluten intolerance is a thing.

I blind-bought Riviera Yogurt in the little reusable glass containers (12x120g for $8.99 vanilla/lime/strawberry) and they are orgasmic. Very light almost fluffy texture, almost like mousse and very subtle flavoring instead of the usual overpowering synthetic yogurt flavor.

They're made by Laiterie Chalifoux and their website has a bunch of stuff you can do with the containers after...pretty cool. The whole thing has a very artisan/family feel to it.

So I urge everyone in Quebec to go buy some so they don't stop carrying this gem!!!
Hope they expand to all Costco stores.
I picked some up at loblaws after reading about it here, and very good.
I normally buy the cheap Astro yogurt and world of difference.
Little pricy, but I actually needed little glass jars for something else, so not really spending more than I would have ($2 yogurt + $2 at dollar store vs $4 for yogurt)

Gluten tolerance is a much bigger thing.

True, but gluten tolerance can eat gluten free things.

I wouldn't pay extra for over-hyped, faddish, and gluten free.

I hear it will also be organic in the next version and have Atkin's seal of approval.

Has anyone tried the stuffed salmon and is it any good?

Don't buy the maple chipotle short ribs, it was bad.

Why do you care what people buy with THEIR money to put in THEIR mouths? Oh wait it's a Costco thread so you had to come in and show everyone you have the maturity of a blueberry scone. Carry on folks.

Anybody else finding their location carrying fewer varieties of cakes?

I've been waiting for either the Limoncello or Strawberry Shortcake they have been stocking in early summer/spring and neither have appeared.

And... if anybody spots wild salmon in stock, please post. I have such a craving for fresh wild salmon!!

Yup, its a rather dull selection right now. I get annoyed when I see what they have at Costco in the US. Everything they have for us right now is to heavy for this time of year. I was so annoyed when one of my relatives told me their Costco in the US had a fresh fruit flan with a vanilla custard!! Why can't we get that.

Stuff salmon is good. I'd say try it and then make it yourself at home with fish scrap, imitation crab, mayonnaise, Shrimp, and seasoning

We have Tiramisu, Coconut Cream, Tuxedo, Strawberry Cheesecake, and the birthday decorated type cakes. And a Berry Tart.

If you see the LaRocca Key Lime Crunch cake (we've been buying it at Metro, it's delicious.

was looking for tahini today but the location i was at didn't have any. i decided to try out something called superbutter, which is made of sunflower, sesame and flax seeds. not really the best swap for tahini but tastes quite good.
if anyone has a peanut allergy it's a pretty good replacement for peanut butter. it is much thinner though. i just put it in the fridge upside down to redistribute the oil that was floating on top. hoping it will thicken up as it gets colder.
Good, better, best. Never let it rest. 'Til your good is better and your better is best.

If you are near a bulkbarn, they have tahini...
i didn't notice Sunbutter there. the one i got was called superbutter. i imagine it would be a good swap to use in your cookies.
