I’ve been a Costco fan for years: great products; great prices; and known for treating their staff well. Costco’s CEO, Jim Sinegal, even endorses one of my favorite books of all time, Wooden on Leadership.
He states on the back cover:
“Wooden On Leadership offers valuable lessons no matter what your endeavor. ‘Competitive Greatness’ is our goal and that of any successful organization. Coach Wooden’s Pyramid of Success is where it all starts.”
–Jim Sinegal, president & CEO, Costco
I’ve often found incredible products that I thought would be worth sharing on my blog, so others can get it while they can. Because so often Costco finds a cheaper deal (or something), and we’ll never see these products again. So “get it while you can.”
And if you say an asterisk [*] on the lot’s price label, this means that this pallet will be Costco’s last.
Well, I just now discovered that the cartons of milk we recently purchased looked like (almost identical packaging) the excellent, Borden shelf-stable milk, which isn’t radiated and contains no artificial hormones. But this product is totally different.
It’s made by Real Fresh. It’s Ultra-Pasteurized (nuclear radiated) and is not artificial hormone free. And the proof is that it tastes nasty — while Borden’s non-radiated, non-rbGH milk had a rich, wholesome taste.
What a disappointment! We’re taking the case back. Nutrition should be more important than saving a few pennies (or even dollars).
So I’m launching this first Costco post. Probably many more will come, mainly consisting of products that Costco does have.
And I know I’m starting out on a somewhat negative foot here. But Costco tries to find the balance between price and what people want. And if more people demand wholesome, unadulterated products Costco will carry more of them — just as they have this great Borden milk for these many great “Uhm, uhm good!” months. This milk was truly amazing!
