In case there are any Maryland Blue Crab lovers out there, Living Social is running a half-price deal for the Blue Crab Trading Co.  They ship MD blue crabs, crab cakes, lobster, etc. to your door Fedex.

Lime watch: $.049 at TJ's.  Cheapest I've seen anywhere, but I haven't been to Costco this week.  Still $0.78 at Winco.

Also 2 - $1.00 at G.O. 

 

I'm glad you continue to add to this thread. Somehow I get a little twinge of excitement before opening it. (like a present)  :lol:

I am going to put in a plug for Cheese Treasure Hunting at Costco. They have a fairly standard regular assortment which does include some good prices on good cheeses (Reggiano, Delice de Bourgogne, Manchego to name a few), and some whacky things with fruit in places where fruit should not be found, but in addition, I have found some really interesting cheeses, sometimes at way-bargain prices (when they want to get rid of the last pieces, I imagine.) One was this San Pietro Beeswax cheese: http://www.sfgate.co...bly-3295086.php

The first time I got it it was around $10/lb. I went back a couple of weeks later and checked for more. There were 7 wedges left and the price was $1.97/lb. Yes, you read that correctly. It was not out of date but could have been close. Not that it matters w/a hard cheese. I also got a terrific Spanish Blue Cheese that is wrapped in leaves. Humm, read this: http://en.wikipedia....Cabrales_cheese this definitely had no foil! Could alternatively be this: http://recipes.wikia...m/wiki/ValdeĆ³n

 

Finally, I want to recommend the "Beaver Classic" the first commercially available cheese from the new OSU (I'm sorry dad, but I know you would have preferred Cheese to Football!) cheese institute. Also available at Costco for about $10/lb. Check it out!

I go to the one in NE Portland. I have very limited experience with the others so can't comment on their selection.

Hillsboro. Just picked up a 1.5 lb brick of parm reg stravecchio for around $23. They don't always have the stravecchio but that's an excellent price. Costco is the best cheese bargain around, especially at holiday time when they get in a ton of more unusual things. I also like the Coastal Cheddar for a super cheap price. They usually have huge bricks of all kinds of cheeses cheaper than you'd see them elsewhere.

I was in there on Sunday so I snapped some quick shots of cheese prices.  I don't know if all of these are good prices, I only price out the few things I personally buy.  But this will give you an idea of their pricing in general.  The below is less than 1/4 of their inventory.  They've got 3 gigantic cases of cheese plus end caps, plus a half-aisle of things like bagged shredded that beats out any store's price in town. Their fresh mozz is also a great price but I didn't love the quality so I don't buy it there.  They used to have the best price in town on large bricks of Cave Aged Gruyere but they haven't carried it in over 6 months, so who knows.

 

3-year aged parm reg: $13.49/lb

They should have all those Tillamooks in the unsliced "loaf" form as well.

 

Also usually have some brand of aged Gouda. I have purchased several different brands at various times.

They had gouda, aged gouda and smoked gouda.  They had bricks (non-sliced) of the TIllamook plus a million other cheeses.  Mozz, fetas, bries, bleus, camembert, gruyere, goat, sheep, you name it.
