I rarely buy the products I sample at Costco...and yet, I still sample them like a college student seeks free food. However, yesterday I was finally lured to the dark side.
Costco has this new product: The Greek Gods honey Flavoured Traditional Greek Yogurt. It's free of cow hormones, but that is not why I bought it. I bought it for it's thick, honeyed goodness and almost goat cheesy tang. I bought it for its rich mouth feel and silky, velvety melt in your mouth taste. Yum! So you should translate that as this is the first time I have eaten full-fat (10 grams ) yogurt after 10 years of non-fat Yoplait.
But wait! There's more.... I bought it in two 24-ounce packages (Yep, Costco alright) and there's maybe 1 cup left. Moreover, I didn't eat the most of it. The kids LOOOOVE it! I told them it tasted better than ice cream (Sorry, honey, I know you work for an ice cream company and they are responsible for the fat bonus we are getting, but it's still betta!)
As we speak, remains I am snacking on attract Eldest's attention. He opens his mouth like a baby bird for a bite. Before I know it, he snatches the container and those remains are being heartily consumed by eldest. His quote, in Eygore accent, " Sooooo Guuuuud!"
The logical businessman in my husband says that products that are put out for sampling at Costco tend to sell 3-4 times more product. Apparently, there's also this $1000 a week in product sold minimum bar to stay at Costco. According to the stocking clerk, as he directed me to the yogurt, there were only 12 boxes left of the 150 they put out yesterday. By my calculations, they may have met that bar in one week-end. So check it out! This yogurt may be the next Wii, Tickle Me Elmo, or Ferbie. Get it while it's there!
